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

Review

This car is my first Benz and I have always wanted a convertible Benz. Mine has over 80,000 miles on it now and the feeling I have is that I don't really need a new car. This car has timeless styling, is very practical, gets great gas mileage and performs well. I have heard you can drive these things for 150,000 miles if you want without a lot of problems. This is a real Mercedes and it acts like one - not like a normal car that becomes obsolete at a certain point.

Favorite Features

Retractable roof, stereo, relatively usable trunk, decent gas mileage, timeless styling.

Suggested Improvements

Some interior bits could be of higher quality, Supercharged 2.3 can be a bit coarse, recirculating ball steering lacks a direct feel. I think they fixed all of this on the new model
