2002 Mercedes-Benz SLK-Class SLK320 2dr Convertible (3.2L 6cyl 6M)
Review
Just bought my SLK320. I've owned 5 SLs before this car, most recently a 1998 SL500. The SLK320 is much more fun to drive than any previous SL! It feels just as powerful as the SL500, but its handling is MUCH more responsive, nimble, sporty, and quick. Front suspension is perfect; feels more like a Porsche or BMW. Rear suspension is a little stiff & bumpy, but tolerable. Audio system could be better. Crossover frequency between sub-woofer and door speakers is wrong. Mid-bass is missing, making some CDs sound harsh and "thin". Other than that...the SLK320 is a blast! Automatic transmission is very intuitive. I was skepitcal about the "touch shift"....but it works very well.
Favorite Features
Great handling. Very quick, responsive engine and transmission.
Suggested Improvements
Rear suspension should be a bit softer, more compliant. Audio system needs improvement, to increase "mid-bass" that's missing from subwoofer and door speakers.
