2006 Mercedes-Benz SLK-Class Convertible SLK350 2dr Convertible (3.5L 6cyl 6M)


Review

Climbing into a SLK is empowering one to cruise under the sun or in the rain with grace and style. Seating just two people this makes for an intimate encounter for a couple on a trip or night out. It is an upscale convertible with a hardtop neatly tucked away for open air cruise or engaged overhead for the more climate controlled person. Enjoying the feel of the road through great road handling ability and the minimum effort to steer this ride is very enjoyable. This is a great roadster for the price and mileage. Maintenance of this car is highly recommended to be maintained. As with all cars, the better you take care of it the longer it will last. This car is eye catching during a beach cruise or even a highway cruise. No need to speed to enjoy the power of this vehicle. Power seems to be at the fingertips for everything this little roadster provides. Recommend anyone interested to try various years and trim models to find the right one for yourself. I prefer the 2005 to 2011 body style which has a more sloping front end versus the boxy looking style introduced in 2012.

Review

Defect w/battery. The rain overflows fm the right side, into the battery box. There is a tiny hole for the rain to exit. The hole gets clogged up causing the rain water to back up into the electrical. Ruined A/C, Heat, cruise control, radio, etc. A total nightmare. I pushed the little black rubber stopper in & don't have the problem anymore. This is a manufacturer defect. Cost me thousands.
The front bumper is also defective. 9 out of 10 are cracked. 1. It's too low 2. It's too flimsy. 3. It's high enough to scrape the top of a yellow cement parking block.
Hello!
Now that USA owns MB... starting to turn into crap!


Best Features

I've owned SLK since they first came out. It looks awesome! Fun to Drive. The 06 has lots of problems. Now the radio is making a noise. No music just the same loud repetitious noise.


Worst Features

1. Reinvent the front bumper! too low & flimsy 2. Make a larger exit hole for rain to exit fm windshield instead of back washing into the electrical.

Review

I am 56, no I am not having a midlife crisis. But I did need a little zing , so i found the most perfect car to ram rod around in. I really love my car, It is fun, you get the looks, you feel like a million bucks, and the 06, was very reasonably priced. LOVE LOVE LOVE it!


Best Features

the top goes up and down with the touch of a finger, never gets caught in the rain, with the top down, takes about 30 seconds to bring it up or down.


Worst Features

maybe the interior could be prettier, with a wood design. But no improvement really necessary

Review

I bought the SLK350 just over a year ago. It's lived up to almost every expectation. Driving it is like handling a rocket. It has serious power and when you punch it, there is literally no hesitation. Even with the top down, there is no wind noise - you can listen to the radio and your hair doesn't look like you fixed it with a weed-eater. I do have the AirScarf and it makes a huge difference. Like everyone else I think the cupholder is an abomination. I knocked a full cup of coffee over in it (it's in a bad place AND it's flimsy). Now the buttons on my radio and heat/air are spongy and unpredictable. Mercedes can't fix them either. Still, a great car.


Best Features

The top going up or down is a 3-ring circus! Gathers a crowd every time! Love the handling and pick-up. The headlights are amazing without blinding oncoming drivers.


Worst Features

MOVE the cupholder! Tires wear out quickly. Seat needs better adjustment. I'm only 5'2" so the seat belt needs to be adjustable too. Still will buy another, though...
