Review of the 2003 Mercedes-Benz SLK-Class

  • 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 cachet of a Mercedes' all-in-one attractively styled package.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    Retractable hardtop, confident handling, blistering performance from the SLK32 AMG, quiet and composed freeway cruiser.

  • Cons

    Steering lacks feedback, big blind spots when top is up, no manual gearbox for the top performance model.

  • What's New for 2003

    There are no changes for this year. A revamped SLK is set to debut for 2004.

It is fun driving top down or up but I will srive it top down more weather permitting. It get's pretty darned hot here in Phoenix AZ in July.




Exaclty what i was looking

Car has a very solid construction. Comfortable for a sport roadster. Good on gas. I average 24 mpg on premium. Engine has enough power for an average driver, but being a 4 cyl is does not sound too smooth. The whining of the supercharger compensates a little, and bring some of the 'sport sound' to the car

I've owned the SLK for a little over a year, and am very happy with it. I was initially attracted to the car because of its looks, styling, and impressive engineering. Supercharger provides enough of a boost for highway passing; otherwise, I would recommend a 320. Expectation met – with just one exception.
