2008 Mercedes-Benz SLK-Class SLK280 2dr Convertible (3.0L 6cyl 6M)


We enjoy this special car because of its unique appearance and build quality. The car is very stable on the highway and absorbs road imperfections well. The black metallic paint is of superior quality and shines beautifully (if clean). The gear shifter feels industrial in strength but the sun visors are very small and cheap. Seats are firm but comfortable for long distance cruising. Road noise can be heard from the rear when driven above 40 mph. The sound of the engine via the tail pipe is second only to the Porsche in the roadster class. Great safety is a given as is its long term durability. Learning the features of the car and the interior buttons may take time.

Best Features

Edition 10 wheels and paint. Overall design of the exterior and automatic retractable top.

Worst Features

Blind spots with top up. Rear wheel tire noise and intermittent noises from the trunk/ roof at highway speeds (90 mph)
