2002 Mercedes-Benz SLK-Class SLK32 AMG 2dr Convertible (3.2L 6cyl S/C 5A)


Review

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.

2002 Mercedes-Benz SLK-Class SLK32 AMG 2dr Convertible (3.2L 6cyl S/C 5A)


Review

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.


Favorite Features

Hardtop, Supercharged V6 and 349hp. Handsome classic good looks that will age well.


Suggested Improvements

Steering feel. Harshness over bumps. CD changer in deck. Interior furnishings

Review

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!


Favorite Features

Hard Top. Acceleration. The radio is quite good (get the CD Player). The gas mileage isn't bad for a car of this calliber. The fun factor! Brakes are good!


Suggested Improvements

Better lumbar support for us who are over 40.

Review

Such a joy every time you step on the gas. Drive it like it's an amusement park ride, drive it to get groceries with your mother-in-law, either way it performs nicely. I never thought I'd like an automatic, but they did such a nice job with this transmission: you can still accelerate while it's downshifting.


Favorite Features

transmission. engine. suspension. overall kick-ass performance. cargo is space quite respectable for a convertible when the top is up.


Suggested Improvements

Wider wheels than the 245s: turn the ESP off, and your launch skids. Leave it on, and you can't get the 4.8 0- 60. Tilt steering wheel would be nice.

Review

SLK32 AMG IS A GREAT CAR! MORE FUN TO OWN THAN I COULD HAVE EVER IMAGINED. I LIVE ABOVE 5,000 FT AND THE SUPERCHARGER ALLOWS THE CAR TO PERFORM LIKE IT IS AT SEA LEVEL. THE AMG BRAKES, TRANSMISSION AND STEERING TAKE THE STANDARD SLK TO A HIGHER LEVEL


Favorite Features

SUPERCHARGER, SPEEDSHIFT TRANSMISSION


Suggested Improvements

SEAT SETTINGS MEMORY

Review

This car is a mini-rocket. Head snapper and eye turner. Get lots of questions and curious lookers. Fast, handles great. Pleasure to drive. Low profile and small cockpit makes it a bit harder for a tall person to get in and out. Very small trunk, barely room for set of clubs and shoes. Dispite a few issues, very pleased. If had it to do over, would buy it again.


Favorite Features

Fast and handles corners like a dream.


Suggested Improvements

More leg room for tall person (over 6ft). More trunk space for luggage and other things.

Review

Great acceleration. Hard top security. Nimble size. Handsome design. Decent fuel economy. The SLK32 meets my criteria for a fun and (somewhat) practical sports car. It may not have the handling of a Porsche C4S nor speed of a TVR but for everyday driving it more than keeps your heart racing. Stomping on the accelerator at 60 mph results in instant torque and before you know it -- triple digits!


Favorite Features

Hardtop convertibility. AMG exclusivity. Mercedes build and reliability.


Suggested Improvements

Redesigned wind blocker. One touch Up windows. In-dash CD changer.

Review

An extraordinary vehicle. Performed well at Mid-Ohio track - competes well with the 911s. The car was a compromise with my wife who does not like to shift.


Favorite Features

Power and responsiveness are outstanding. Speed shift transmission is fabulous - quick and computer does not allow over revving like on my E55.


Suggested Improvements

Downers: big steering wheel, no seat memory, needs revision of back draft screen to one more easily seen through.

Review

Awesome car! Only 400+ miles so far, but what great performance! Handles the curves perfectly and is much more nimble than my 560SL. Powerful and smooth to drive.


Favorite Features

Sleek profile and comfortable interior. And, of course, the retractable hard top.


Suggested Improvements

Find a way to provide spare tire.
