Dream Car for under $60k
By Tim Gaither on


2002 Mercedes-Benz SLK-Class SLK32 AMG 2dr Convertible (3.2L 6cyl S/C 5A)


Best car I have ever owned (out of 48).
I am a car enthusiast and the last 4
sportcars were 00 Vette, 00 Boxster, 01
S2000, 01 Boxster S. SLK32 has better
acceleration than vette, with Boxster
handling, and S2000 fun w/tiptronic
shift and ESP control. Boxsters were
slow, Vette had heavy feel and poor
visibility, S2000 loud and clutch
slipped. SLK32 0-60 time of 4.6 secs.
Cabin is awesome with Bose system and I
fit well(6' 3"). Xeon headlights are
awesome. Ride is smooth and silky.
Visibility best for convertable-due to
wide rear window and small roof
pillars. Car exceeded all expectations

Best Features

tiptronic works effortlessly. Steering and handling in aggressive situations take little effort. Retractable hard top with glass keeps cabin quiet and drops with one switch. Only 1,000 made guarantees exclusivisity.

Worst Features

Only thing I can come up with is automatic climate control.
