Fun for awhile - but not a great value
By germancar on

Vehicle

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

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
