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

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.
