2004 Mercedes-Benz SLK-Class Convertible SLK230 Kompressor 2dr Roadster (2.3L 4cyl S/C 6M)


Review

SLK 230 Kompressor Sport: This car is very impressive! There are so many things to comment about how this car performs and handles, but all you have to say is, it's a Mercedes. The best thing about this roadster is how it tightens the faster you go. Snow and rain performance is good considering it's rear wheel driven but you must have the good tires. The trunk size is excellent when the top is up, but watch out when it's down! It's like going from a full size suitcase down to a large briefcase. I was crossed between the S2000 and this car, but once I looked at all the SLK interior features & hard top, the decision was easy.


Best Features

The hard top. This roadster is an attention getter.


Worst Features

SL styled stereo system hooked up with all the bells and whistles - GPS, DVD, etc.

2004 Mercedes-Benz SLK-Class Convertible SLK320 2dr Roadster (3.2L 6cyl 6M)


Review

Tremendously fun ride; excellent acceleration; very sporty; affordable yet just pricy enough that you don't find yourself passing "your" car much, if at all, while driving down the highway. The only pitful of ownership is getting tired of saying "Thank you!" from the numerous,every day compliments while out in public!


Best Features

The automatic folding roof-to-trunk feature is clever and handy. The "touch shift" transmission is outstanding and fun.


Worst Features

Needs slightly more space between the gear shift (when in "Park" only) and the storage compartment on the lower dashboard.

2004 Mercedes-Benz SLK-Class Convertible SLK320 2dr Roadster (3.2L 6cyl 6M)


Review

I just bought it in October so now that winter has come to NY, I have tucked it away in the carriage barn. Come spring I will drop the top and put on my Ray Bans. But seriously, buying this car was a good decision and Mercedes Benz makes wonderful cars! I opted to buy this car with standard transmission because if you are going to own a car like this shifting through the gears just adds to the driving pleasure. I highly recommend this car to anyone who is looking for the joy of owning and driving a beautiful convertible sports car.


Best Features

The retractable hard top. Also the 6 speed manual transmission!


Worst Features

Please don't change a thing.

2004 Mercedes-Benz SLK-Class Convertible SLK320 2dr Roadster (3.2L 6cyl 6M)


Review

I bought the loaded 6-cyl model when it first came out in August 2000. My wife and I have driven it in all kinds of good and bad weather (just make sure to use HR-rated snow tires in the winter though), have experienced the incredible safety features (avoided hitting a deer with complete control the first trip out of town), and it still garners compliments from people of all age groups, who genuinely enjoy looking at the car! Excellent service, routine maintenace, solid coupe/convertible for two. Having owned several Bimmers, a Porsche, Acuras and others, the SLK is proving to be the best ever! Outstanding value.


Best Features

Power hardtop; traction control in slippery conditions; economy and response of the six-cylinder powerplant and beautifully mated 6-spd manu-auto); efficiency of design; utter quietness with hardtop up, and well managed wind noise at highway cruising speeds.


Worst Features

The exhaust system could be a bit quieter - the sporty sound is too agressive for my wife as it alarms her during spirited driving!
