2006 Mercedes-Benz SLK-Class SLK280 2dr Convertible (3.0L 6cyl 6M)


Review

I love to drive this car. Especially with the top down. However, my husband leaves before I do in the morning so I usually have to drive our other car. This car is a lot of fun to drive. The hardtop convertible is great and very convenient to use. I love the heated seats and neck warmer. The ride can be a little jittery on some roads.


Favorite Features

The automatic convertible top. The heated seats. The neck warmer. The seat memory makes it easy to change drivers. No back seat.


Suggested Improvements

Height adjustable seat belt for short people so it doesn't get us in the neck. Work on making ride less jittery.

2006 Mercedes-Benz SLK-Class SLK55 AMG 2dr Convertible (5.4L 8cyl 7A)


Review

I had a Lambo door kit installed early on. For those not really in the know, people asked me if it was an SLR. I like the styling cues taken from the SLR. Several times other lesser car drivers have taken me on from a stoplite to their disappointment (just a quick launch).The exhaust note is wonderful, much better than my SLK32 AMG (which was a little faster). You just can't beat the sound of a V-8. The car receives compliments from both men and women alike. Handling through the canyons of So. Cal. is suberb.


Favorite Features

The styling, the power, the sound, and the build quality. My average gas mileage is 22 mpg, which is not bad considering.


Suggested Improvements

Change the location of the cup holders. Dress up the interior.

2006 Mercedes-Benz SLK-Class SLK280 2dr Convertible (3.0L 6cyl 6M)


Review

I am so pleased with my new SLK 280. It is such a pleasure to drive especially in the "Sport" mode. It hugs the road and the stability and handling are second to none. The envious looks we get on the road are worth its weight in gold. A real "fun car" and enjoyable driving experience.


Favorite Features

I like the ability to set the type of ride I want either Sport or Comfort. The electronic stability control is awesome.


Suggested Improvements

Improvements needed for the blind spots when the hood is up. This is the only drawback I have experienced with this car.

Review

Don't get it if you don't like attention. This car is a looker and you'll get random people approaching you giving you compliments. Unlike others, I like the sound of the stock sound system. What's ridiculous though is that in 2006, it still won't play MP3s. The air-scarf is a must-have option. Get it, or regret it!


Favorite Features

Retractable hard-top, air scarf.


Suggested Improvements

For cars with manual transmission, add a sensor to the shifter so the car won't rev the engine to the limit if the gear is disengaged during cruise control! Stock radio must play MP3 in a $45k + car, even the Yaris does it. The steering could be a little more direct for better road feedback.

Review

I have had the car for over a year now. I love the look. Rides a little rough though. The top rattles when up, dealership told me that that happens with convertibles. I like the gas mileage, and the trunk is surprisingly accomodating. Standard audio system could be better. My only real complaint would be the noises and creaks that the top makes when up. Like everyone else, the cup holder is in a funky place.


Favorite Features

Hard top convertible


Suggested Improvements

Better standard audio system. Relocate that cup holder
