My 2001 SLK Experience
By Mel-R on


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


Thinking I was buying a
Mercedes "quality" product, I found
some discouraging problems with mine.
First, I got stuck with the hard top
stuck in the trunk, and had to drive it
to the dealership to get it fixed.
After they fixed it, I found that they
scratched the roof while bringing the
top up. Then the whole computer system
broke down, and I was only able to
drive my car 25 mph until I could get
it home. I have also found that the
inside of the car is peeling on the
center console, and the leather on my
steering wheel is coming off. Please
keep in mind that I bought this car
brand new, and it still has 25000 miles
of warranty left.

Best Features

When working, hardtop convertible. It has super pick up and go. If you get bored with an automatic engine, you can always use the Tiptronic.

Worst Features

Work all of the kinks out. Use materials in the interior that will last more than a year.
