2005 Mercedes-Benz SLK-Class SLK350 2dr Roadster (3.5L 6cyl 6M)


Review

From the retractable hardtop to the James Bond/Batmobile design to the MB star in the nose, the SLK 350 is just an all-around jaw-dropper.


Favorite Features

Handling. The sound that you get when it winds itself through the gears. Great breaks. No, question - the drop top.


Suggested Improvements

OK. The cupholders are useless but why would anyone bring drinks into this car? This is for driving. Starbucks is for drinking coffee. Yes, the radio/cd display is virtually invisible with the top down, but who cares.

2005 Mercedes-Benz SLK-Class SLK350 2dr Roadster (3.5L 6cyl 6M)


Review

This is a fun little car. The only downfall is the engine/road noise while driving. Too, I wish it had a little more storage space in the interior. Perhaps a "small" back seat area.


Favorite Features

That the convertible top hides away into the trunk with great ease; the neck scarf. I also love the teleaid and the navigation system.


Suggested Improvements

No road/engine noise; Heated steering wheel; more storage space; and an additon of a small back seat - not for people, but for dogs, shopping, small luggage - for the extras.

2005 Mercedes-Benz SLK-Class SLK350 2dr Roadster (3.5L 6cyl 6M)


Review

I really love the car design, handling and performance. It's pretty quick and absolutely fun to drive.


Favorite Features

The hardtop convertable.


Suggested Improvements

Find a better place for the cupholder - when i put my coffee there - the steam goes to the top and the condinsation drips down to everything below.

2005 Mercedes-Benz SLK-Class SLK350 2dr Roadster (3.5L 6cyl 6M)


Review

No reason to return to dealership since we purchased. Super car for fun to drive and wife loves the 6 speed transmission. Feels that a real sports car like this new model should have the manual transmission. The "Scarf Heating"makes the driving expierence in fall and early spring in PA exceptional.


Favorite Features

Drop top and the Scarf Heating


Suggested Improvements

More wood on the trim package. Earlier models with the trim had full dash coverage.

Review

I have to stop and breathe every time I drive my SLK 350. This is a top of the line luxury sports car. I have been stopped and complemented by complete strangers. The drive in itself is exhilarating (excellent handling). I have not and probably will not reach maximum speed; but just knowing the capability of the SLK 350 makes you feel confident.


Favorite Features

Convertible Hard Top


Suggested Improvements

Improve the cup holders. Drinks are cooled from the AC, however, there is always the fear of spillage.
