2000 Mercedes-Benz SLK-Class Convertible SLK230 Kompressor 2dr Convertible


Review

I plan to purchase an extended warranty for an additional 7 years coverage as I never want to sell this car. It's my 5th Benz and love this one the most.


Best Features

Retractable hardtop, looks


Worst Features

Radio needs more volume when top is down. Many radios in other vehicles are louder and easier to hear. Also, the top mechanism needs improvement as it stops with the deck lie retracted but sometimes fails to start the top retraction.

Review

This is a spectacular car to drive - heads turn and eyes pop when the hardtop goes up and down. Though service was excellent, I've had too many incidental problems: the roof failed 2X, Dash warning indicators 2X; A/C; Bose receiver quit; tailight shorted; etc etc. But is it FUN to drive! My wife never cared much about cars but loves to drive this one.


Best Features

Dry road handling is on rails. It turns heads like few cars and in the lower speeds accelerates like few cars can, all without abusing occupants. And it's FUN to drive.


Worst Features

More adjustable seats. And definitely better quality control. My two American -made MLs have had 0 problems over a combined 4 years while this German-made precision SLK has had a dozen trips to MB for warranty work! But is it ever fun to drive.

Review

Other than some fit and finish problems, and loose, flapping top cables under the headliner, this has been a superb automobile. It took a while to get the annoyances fixed, but I love this car.


Best Features

The convertible top, the power, the sportscar handling, and the head-turning quotient.


Worst Features

A better look at the front lower grill plastic, interior door panels, and those roof power cables would be good.

Review

I just love my little car! It is not a car for the drag strip, you will need the SLK32amg for that but the 230 will hit 60 in about 7 seconds. I have the manual stick shift for a more involved driving pleasure.


Best Features

Has to be the power hard top! Strong brakes are great too. The car has never been back to the shop for any defects!


Worst Features

better seats
