2007 Mercedes-Benz SLK-Class SLK280 2dr Convertible (3.0L 6cyl 6M)

Review

I had no intention of buying this car initially, even during my test drive. But after a few weeks of ownership, we love this car. When compared to Porsche Boxter, SLK is more refined and I simply love the styling and we get so many compliments. The sporty red seats and its contrast to silver body is really stunning. For the money, you get a sporty refined ride, build quality is excellent- especially the hardtop-you can open hardtop with the remote key. Handling isn't great at first, but that's mostly due to stiff steering wheel at first, but it has loosened up. Now the handling is great and acceleration is surprisingly quick. I love the low grunt of exhaust sound. It's really sporty

Best Features

Red seats, hardtop, styling, sound of exhaust, placement of all controls.

Worst Features

Take the CD changer out of glove compartment. Lack of lockable storage compartment. For a small car, local gas mileage needs much improvement. Highway driving 70-80 mph, I get 26-27 mpg, which is good, but local streets? 16-17mpg... small blindspot when top is up
