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.

A future classic

by on
Vehicle: 2004 Mercedes-Benz SLK-Class SLK32 AMG 2dr Roadster (3.2L 6cyl S/C 5A)

This is an exceptional car in every respect. In my opinion it's a future classic (only c.4,300made most in US) & has better looks than the latest SLK AMG's and it's rarer & faster. It's a pleasure to drive around town so much so that even my mum could drive it without knowing what it's capable of. It's a wolf in sheep's clothing and will decimate most challengers. When you want power it launches you as if you're strapped to a rocket and that power still keeps coming until your nerve or the road runs out.




Fun for awhile - but

Vehicle: 2004 Mercedes-Benz SLK-Class SLK32 AMG 2dr Roadster (3.2L 6cyl S/C 5A)

Car accelerates like crazy and is fun to drive. Great open air driving and nice exhaust sounds. Wish the car had a few more features or amenities. Not built for comfort or gadgets. Main problems - dealer would never completely fix brake squeak. Blinker light housing fell out of socket twice. Ride is cramped and visibility is marginal. Great engine offset by poor dealer service. On the one hand the car performs great - but don't you expect great service and some more features for 56K? One last thing - car handles very poorly in the rain, even below 60 mph. I had a CLK with Z-rated Michelins that performed better than these Continentals.




Take it from me.........dont buy

If you dont like going to the dealer every 3rd day for fixing, dont buy one.

My experience owning my first

by on
Vehicle: 2004 Mercedes-Benz SLK-Class SLK32 AMG 2dr Roadster (3.2L 6cyl S/C 5A)

I went to a dealership in Wilmington, and luckily they had the style and importantly the motor combination I wanted. They took my for a drive in this car. I test drove it to the max. I was totaly impressed.I have had 2 Corvettes in my life time and no comparison. The supercharged engine, the sheer response of power and handling. Far greater then any car I have every owned.The immediate acceleration from a dead stop is beyond belief. The selling point is driving one. You're hooked. They went to great effort to get the color and options I wanted. My experience is, this is the best sports car I have ever owned. It's just fun, every time you get behind the wheel

Great car

by on
Vehicle: 2004 Mercedes-Benz SLK-Class SLK32 AMG 2dr Roadster (3.2L 6cyl S/C 5A)

very fast, i had a porsche boxster and there is no match, i like the way the boxster handle the corners, but this car is as good but with a lot more power, if you are a tall person this car is not for you, i believe 6' and under, i don't like that the cd player is in the trunk and there is a casette player in the front, i don't believe that too many people use them anymore, if you run over a hole the cd player will skip. great car.
