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

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.
