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


Review

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.


Best Features

Appearance - it's obviously not a standard R170 SLK. Performance - that of a supercar - it eats Astons, most 911's and many a Ferrari. The exhaust note.


Worst Features

Add a better HiFi - the Alpine IVA D310R fitted perfectly into mine and it has a 'pop out' SatNav/Video/I-Pod screen.

Fun for awhile - but not a great value

Review

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.


Best Features

Engine, acceleration, braking and exhaust sound.


Worst Features

Better visibility

Review

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


Best Features

Body interior, engine, sound system, suspension, quality, convenience of the controls inside the car. The manual shifter . And the sheer look and body style.


Worst Features

I can't think of any improvements, other then putting a bigger V-8 in this little roadster.
