1999 Mercedes-Benz SLK-Class SLK230 Sport 2dr Convertible

Review

The styling of this car both inside and out is excellent. MB seems to be losing their edge on quality. For a car just shy of $50,000, I would expect a vehicle put together much better. At 25,000 miles the dash lights have gone out, A/C fan has quit, windows do not fit tight (leak), door panels are coming unglued and the central locking system works intermittently. MB is still good on service. All of the above have been repaired (under warranty) and a nice new E-Class was provided while the repairs were done. However, I remember not so long ago when you bought a new MB you never had to deal with these type of problems.

Favorite Features

Ease of hardtop operation - heated seats.

Suggested Improvements

MB - get with the program. Cassette players as a standard (CD as an option) is old technology. I rented a Hyundai from Hertz the other day - that $12,000 car has a STANDARD CD player...I would expect at least that in a $ 50,000 vehicle.
