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

Review

I picked up my new SLK 350 recently. The car is a huge improvement over its predecessor, often perceived as a girl's car. No guy will be ashamed to be seen sitting behind the '05 SLK. I test drove both the manual and automatic transmission. One car reviewer said no one will regret getting the stick shift, and I agree 100%. It is so much more fun to move the gears yourself, and you will save over $1000 at it since the 7 speed gear box is an option. The car has terrific acceleration, and it hugs the road so well, you wouldn't be afraid to navigate those winding turns at a fast speed. I recommend the zenon HID lights. It's gorgeous in the dark, and worth every penny. Standard sound system is also superb.

Best car I've ever owned

Review

It turns heads, snaps your head back, and you can drive it in traffic all day and still have a smile on your face. It handles much better than the 2003 (I have one of those also) and the cockpit feels like a jet fighter. The trunk is larger, the transmission shifts wonderfully. It has no rattles at all, and when I brought it back for the free one-thousand mile checkup I had nothing to fix or adjust.

This car is everything you'd expect a roadster to be! Feel, ride, performance, class--it's a trip to drive and own! This dealership treated me with respect and care, too. Not for the feint of heart or bench seat afficianado--this is a sports car and a load of fun!

Review

7 day owner. Top up looks great, better down. Few think it's a drop top until you show them. Several have guessed it must have cost over 80K. Snicker. Power, Handling, Status, Comfort (I am 6'2" 225). I tested a Porsche Box, Audi S4, and BMW 330. They just do not stack up against SLK 350. Interior is par excellance. I live in flat Florida and find myself frequently going out of the way to find curves on back roads. Radar Detector should come as standard equipment. In sum, I am a discerning consumer. The desingers found a way to touch the human senses on many levels. Many fellow drivers must feel the same was as I have noticed several jaws drops. Go Mercedes!

This a car that is fun to drive and handles great. The hard top convertible is so nice, makes the car noise free when the hard top is up and is a lot of fun when its down. The new interior is a big improvement over the previous model.

The SLK 350 is an excellent car to own!

Review

The redesigned SLK 350 has a much improved interior and exterior compared to it's predecessor. Excellent features to this car include the optional Harmon Kardon sound system, excellent safety features, stylish headlamps, heated seats, the new edition of an "air scarf" (which enables the driver to experience a comfortable temperature even with the roof down in cooler weather), and of course the retractable hardtop. The car is very fun to drive, it handles the road with ease. Execellent pick- up, with the car reaching 60 mph in under 5 seconds. There is ample trunk space compared to competitor sports cars within this price class. I highly recommend this car... it is very fun to drive!

Review

The new SLK takes your breath away when you first see it. It has a sexy line and everyone notices it. The front nose is gorgeous and the entire body is well proportioned. It has great trunk space. The interior is put together well and is user friendly. Though small with limited cargo space, it still fits CD's, make-up, glasses, a cell phone, papers and even a visor and water bottle. The cup holders are outstanding and very accessible from the driver's side. The many features it offers are outstanding especially the auto lights, the seat adjustment when exiting and the auto convertible roof. The acceleration is excellent and it handles like a dream. It is a blast to drive.

The "wow factor" doesn't wear off.

Review

Even at the base level, the car is well equipped. There is plenty of room (I'm 6'-1"), and the car is quite practical from a comfort and cargo- carrying capacity standpoint. The paint is stunning. My Firemist Red causes long stares and compliments from everyone I encounter. The chassis is stiff and feels light and sporty. The incredible roadgrip is confidence-inspiring. The interior finish is unique, durable, high- quality, and profoundly easy to case for. I have the 7-speed automatic, and although I always buy manual, it's incredible and wouldn't trade it for anything. Coupled with its broad torque curve, it's the closest thing to a turbine engine you'll find. And, my God, is it fast

This car I'll keep!

Review

After enjoying (yawn) several years' driving the SLK 320, I could not resist the SLK 350 with its leaps and bounds improvements. This vehicle is an altogether different animal than its predecessor (think cheetah rather than, say, tabby cat). Opt for the manual transmission for an honest sports car experience (urban driving need not be an obstacle). The MB SLK 350 is an agile, beautiful, and extremely comfortable ride.

Review

Mercedes finally made over the SLK into a true sports car. Great pickup power, smooth new 7 speed automatic overpowers the stick! More roomy than the former design. Exterior looks are outstanding. Picked mine up in Europe and loved its performance on the Autobahn. SL fans, try this one for size and pocket $40,000!
