2001 Mercedes-Benz SLK-Class SLK 230 Kompressor 2dr Convertible (2.3L 4cyl S/C 6M)

Review

It's been a great car for commuting on city streets in Houston, where the weather is warm and the top can stay down most of the year. Lots of torque for accelerating from stop lights. Decent gas mileage. It's also surprisingly good on long roads trips. Adequate trunk, unlike any of its competitors. Quiet, and a pleasant cruiser. Phenomenally solid and secure at 140mph! ;-) The 30 or so improvements made starting with the 2001 model year made the SLK a much better car. Don't buy an older one!

Favorite Features

Retro-look non-wood interior. 5 spd touchshift automatic just as fun as a manual. Maneuverability.

Suggested Improvements

It's not a sports car; the steering really holds it back. Interior paint chips off of door handles and console too easily.
