Love That Baby Car!

Vehicle

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

Review

My SLK230 is sleek and sexy, just a joy to see in my driveway. It is a very solid car, with strong performance in every day driving situations and even stronger performance on lonely stretches of highway! The trunk is amazingly large for a convertible, even with the barrier in place for dropping the top into the compartment. The touch-shift transmission brings you up to speed in manual mode a bit quicker than the automatic, and is a neat trick to show unsuspecting passengers that you can shift gears without a clutch. The Firemist Red Metallic paint is a real attention-getter. In the year that I have owned it, the service and reliability has been perfect.

Best Features

The automatic top, of course, is the best feature. The attractive interior styling with brushed aluminum accents offers a feeling of great sports cars from the past. The Bose sound system doesn't hurt, either!

Worst Features

Placement of the cup holder is the absolute worst feature. If you have a drink in the cup holder and hit a bump, the soda will spill down the center console and soil the air conditioning vents and the radio controls. A lower cup holder would be a better fit.
