The SLK 350 is an excellent car to own!
By Jen Evans on


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


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!

Favorite Features

The "air scarf" is one of the best features, it helps keep the driver warm when the top is down in cooler weather. Also the headlights that come standard with the car are excellent as well - the brightness compared to other cars I've driven really helps to enhance your field of vision at night.

Suggested Improvements

One improvement needed is that part of the hood of the car covers the the hinge to the driver's windshield wiper, and therefore it doesn't lift up completely when you are trying to wash the car or clean snow off of the windshield. Perhaps moving the the driver's wiper slightly will improve this.
