Vehicle1999 Mercedes-Benz SLK-Class SLK230 Kompressor 2dr Convertible
ReviewI bought this car for my 80 year old mother in 1999.She had a lot of nice cars over the years. I took my driving test in her 190 SL in 1955. This SLK was her last car, she passed away in 2007. Presently it only has 16800 miles on it. Silver body, red and black 2 tone seats. It is a bit uncomfortable, not much seat padding. The supercharger provides quick pick up. It did have a top problem early on,that was fixed in a recall. It also had an interior paint problem. Some of the dash and side panels are red painted plastic. The red paint started to flake. I understand the Mercedes did fix some of them early on. I had it repainted. The base color on all SLK's interior plastic was black.
Best FeaturesTop is great, no worry about canvas. Gas milage 30 MPG on the highway. Draws a lot of attention still, in spite of the age, this one looks new, and it is with only 16 K miles.Lots of low end torque, surprises a lot of the big guys at a stop light. Air pump included with spare tire. Good buy today.
Worst FeaturesNeeds to have radio updated for today's stations. If you get an original painted interior, check it out, and,if necessary have it painted, does not cost much. Seats need more padding.
