Review of the 2004 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, quiet and composed freeway cruising.

  • Cons

    Costs more than peers, steering lacks feedback, big blind spots when top is up, no standard CD player.

  • What's New for 2004

    To stoke interest in this aging drop top, Mercedes brings out a Special Edition that includes unique 17-inch wheels, napa leather trim for the sport seats and roll bar, chrome accents around the windows and a color-keyed front grille and rear spoiler.

This Mercedes Benz will be collectors Car soon, the first SLK. It has the feel of Mercedes Benz and the look of a James Bond Car. Great for weekend get a ways for two or Mercedes Benz Club events. These cars will start increasing in value soon and everyone will want one.

When I was in the market for a new car, it took my breathe away when I took it for a test drive - how quickly it accelerated! I knew I wanted a convertible but didn't like the look of the typical plastic top so this was the perfect solution. I've also been pleasantly surprised at much stuff my trunk can hold when the top is up! It truly has met all of my expectations and I love it so much, I'd recommend it if you're in the market for a sports car!

My mother has a 1975 convertable 450 SL (I think that is the model) Anyhow, I am thankful and impressed with Mercedes ability to improve the cars air conditioner. That was my mothers biggest compliant and I have heard the same comment from other people.

I live in the Northeast so I wanted a hardtop for most of the year and a convertible for the summers. It was this or the Lexus SC430 and the SLK was leasing for $150-200 less a month. Besides the Lexus doesn't look well with the top up. I love this car and I can't wait until my lease ends so I can get the new SLK350.

Having owned nothing but Mercedes sedans and the ML since 1976, it was time to try something a bit more sportier. Frankly, having driven the 2003 SL, I found it to be sluggish and quite heavy feeling. It looked great, but didn't perform as I expected. Wanting to stay within the same category of vehicle (convertible sport coupe), I tried the SLK. Didn't think I would like it at first, but was quite surprised at performance and handling characteristics. Acceleration, performance and past history of the vehicle compelled me to purchase it.
