A fun-to-drive roadster that combines the safety and security of a hardtop, the wind-in-your-hair fun of a convertible and the European brand cache of a Mercedes all in one attractively styled package.

My wife and I purchased our SLK 32 last year as a fun car.
Being a 11 yr old car, we use it about 5-7K miles a year driving it on nice days.
So far we have been pleased with this car.
The only negative issue is the center console being scratched up and worn.
Otherwise a really clean car.

I love this car. It's addictive to drive, and the power is awesome. Concerns about acceleration are never an issue. The interior looks a little old, and not all that expensive. The CD changer (which is an option) skips if you hit a pothole and the ride translates uneven road surfaces. But this is a sports car, so you should expect that. The car feels well built and drives wonderfully. The only thing I dont like about the cars driving dynamics would be the steering. It's a bit clunky, and isn't as precise as it should be. The steering wheel is also a little big, and doesnt tilt. It's a great car, if you want something that can take on a Corvette, and that is understated.

This car is solid in construction and road feel. I have owned it since it had 12,000 miles on the odometer. I replaced the rear tires after 13,000 miles, the fronts after 21,000 miles. I love the acceleration. This supercharged V6 gives pure fun! The brakes are awsome (still original). Going 80mph you won't even feel the road. Did I mention that I drive mostly with top down? In a nutshell, this baby flies and looks good doing it with low maintenance. 21 mpg average! Buy one and live a dream!
