2006 Mercedes-Benz SLK-Class SLK280 2dr Convertible (3.0L 6cyl 6M)
Review
OK, the car looks sexy and when it isn't in the shop it can be fun to drive. Only 18 months old I'm already in the market for a new car. The car has been in the shop seven times already. It blows tremendous amounts of smoke when it's cold and shakes violently when starting up. It leaks water from the roof. There is a constant whining noise on the passenger side mirror (which I'm told is pretty typical), new tires needed after 15,000 miles. Paint job is spotted in places looks like they missed spots. Lost display lights while driving and "remove key" light stayed on for days. Be careful, very low front easily damaged. Unfortunately, it's not worth the money. Very disappointed with car.
Favorite Features
Heated scarf and seats, ease of putting top up/down, turning radius, fast!
Suggested Improvements
Ipod ready, stereo crappy, drink holders inconveniently placed, home-link system should be standard, improve paint job.
