1999 Mercedes-Benz SLK-Class SLK230 Kompressor 2dr Convertible


Of all the roadsters out there under $50k, this one is the easiest to live with every day without giving up the fun. The retractable hard-top means you have a coupe with the top up. The trunk is 9 cubic ft, better than any other roadster. Power is great from a dead stop, but it does hesistate a little when accelerating at speed. Reliability has been great.

Best Features

1. Retractable hardtop. The next least expensive convertible that has this is the Lexus SC430, which costs $20,000 more. 2. Great power from the supercharged 4. 3. Big trunk for a roadster. 4. Dealer service is top-notch. But no loaner cars.

Worst Features

Has some interior trim fitting problems that would probably horrify a regular Mercedes customer.
