Fun to Drive
By Brokerbob on


2001 Mercedes-Benz SLK-Class SLK 230 Kompressor 2dr Convertible (2.3L 4cyl S/C 6M)


Traded my 4.0 S type Jag for this little roadster. That is for the wife. I'm 6'1 and I'm comfortable in the car. It's a fun car to drive! Fast, nimble, and great gas mileage. I have not had any problems with my hard top roof thus far. Fun to drive in the mountains of Norh Carolina with the top down. Haven't had any real issues with the car, mechanical or otherwise. My wife spilled coffee in the Triptronic shifter. $500 to get it fixed. Kind of a weird place to have a drink holder which sits towering above the gear shift lever in this car. I can be doing 100mph in the car and really not know it. Rides like a champ, and road noise is not as bad as I thought with the top up.

Best Features

Retractable hard top roof. Gas mileage is great

Worst Features

Stereo controls in the steering wheel. I hate looking down to play with the stereo when I'm at 100mph plus.
