2003 Mercedes-Benz SLK-Class SLK230 Kompressor 2dr Roadster (2.3L 4cyl S/C 6M)

Review

I haven't owned the SLK 230 for very long, but I really enjoy the ride. Originally, my choice was between the SLK and the 350z convertible. When my neighbor came over and told us about the softtop of his M3 convertible being sliced, my husband decided on the 230 because of the hardtop. I must admit that it is a great feature to have! I was concerned about the 4 cylinder engine pick-up, but the kompressor really helps to give it a kick when you need it. I live in a suburb of DC; since traffic is heavy quite often, it makes having a large engine such as the AMG a waste of money.

Favorite Features

The retractable hardtop. The Kompressor helps give the 4 cylinder engine the extra pick-up when necessary.

Suggested Improvements

The reliability standards for most of the European autos have dropped dramatically--this includes MB. For the price and reputation, this area needs to be addressed and improved to compete with the reliability standards of the Japanese autos.
