2012 Mercedes-Benz SLK-Class SLK350 2dr Convertible (3.5L 6cyl 7A)


Review

Never driven in snow or salt as I don't know how well it would do. New rear tires (had a nail in one).service maintained by Mercedes dealer in Gainesville, Fl. Love how the hard top automatically folds down into the back!! Bought the car as it was the show car on the floor in two different Mercedes Delerships. Not 100% sure of the color. May be a custom color..dark silver with a hint of dark blue. Car is washed,waxed, and babied on a regular basis. Never driven on poor road conditions ( pot holes) dirt roads and the like.

2012 Mercedes-Benz SLK-Class SLK350 2dr Convertible (3.5L 6cyl 7A)


Review

Overstated quality, overpriced car, dishonest dealers, and poor customer service all the way up the chain. Unusually high number of defects for any car.


Best Features

It is a convertible.


Worst Features

Quality of overall craftsmanship. More leg room, quieter engine (not referring to sweet purring or roar; ticks, nocks and clicks)...

Don't believe the Auto bloggers, this car is great and NOT a "chick-car"!

Review

I've had my SLK 350 for about a week. i am very happy that i went with this car. i spent a very long time researching and test driving various 'sports cars', and my decision came down to the CTS, Boxster, and the SLK 350. I took an afternoon to test drive all three, and decided the boxster just had too harsh of a ride for a daily driver, and the CTS lacked the convertible top.

I spent the weekend driving around some of winding roads of Los angeles (palos verdes, malibu, and mullholland drive). this car is a great balance between 'fun sports car' and daily commuter! its sublte & subdue when you want it, and ultra-fast & nimble when you want it. a GREAT BALANCE!


Best Features

The 'balance' the car has between subdued daily driver, and raucous power to overtake just about anyone else on the road! The interior is super comfortable and the top operates quickly and smoothly. the premium package is a requirement, all of the various options for ingesting audio into this car is staggering!


Worst Features

The rear-end can use some more styling to match the awesomness of the front-end. The Mercedes 'm-brace' system is really showing its age...too many sub-menus. the voice-command is difficult to operate, and not intuitive...its not 'siri', not even close.
