Love That Baby Car!
By LissaLynn on


2003 Mercedes-Benz SLK-Class SLK230 Kompressor 2dr Roadster (2.3L 4cyl S/C 6M)


My SLK230 is sleek and sexy, just a joy
to see in my driveway. It is a very
solid car, with strong performance in
every day driving situations and even
stronger performance on lonely stretches
of highway! The trunk is amazingly large
for a convertible, even with the barrier
in place for dropping the top into the
compartment. The touch-shift
transmission brings you up to speed
in manual mode a bit quicker than the
automatic, and is a neat trick
to show unsuspecting passengers that you
can shift gears without a clutch. The
Firemist Red Metallic paint is a real
attention-getter. In the year that I
have owned it, the service and
reliability has been perfect.

Best Features

The automatic top, of course, is the best feature. The attractive interior styling with brushed aluminum accents offers a feeling of great sports cars from the past. The Bose sound system doesn't hurt, either!

Worst Features

Placement of the cup holder is the absolute worst feature. If you have a drink in the cup holder and hit a bump, the soda will spill down the center console and soil the air conditioning vents and the radio controls. A lower cup holder would be a better fit.
