Edmunds' Expert Review

A fun-to-drive roadster that combines the safety and security of a hardtop, the wind-in-your-hair fun of a convertible and the European-brand cachet of a Mercedes all in one attractively styled package.

2004 Highlights

To stoke interest in this aging drop top, Mercedes brings out a Special Edition that includes unique 17-inch wheels, napa leather trim for the sport seats and roll bar, chrome accents around the windows and a color-keyed front grille and rear spoiler.

I have now owned my car for over 31/2 years and it has 125k miles on it. I purchased the car in Nov. of 2006 and at the time it had 16K miles. I have now put over 109K miles on it and nothing has ever gpone wrong or prevented me from getting where I had to go. I have serviced it on a regular basis and it has performed very well. The reason I bought the 2004 SLK in 2006 was because my 2002 SLK was hit by another car and I wanted a new one but didn't like the body style of the 2005-2006 model. I remain very happy with my SLK and await the next body style when I will most likely get another SLK. Robert Portney, MD
Great Car After All These Years

I owned my 2004 SLK 230 until this past November when I traded it in on a BMW Z4. Although I do love the BMW, I will always have a place in my heart for the Mercedes. I kept the SLK until it had over 147K and it was as solid and reliable on the day I traded it in as the day I purchased it. It was and probably remains a truly outstanding car and despite my joy in driving the BMW, the Mercedes will always be remembered as a wonderful car that gave me nothing but GREAT service.
James Bond Car

This Mercedes Benz will be collectors Car soon, the first SLK. It has the feel of Mercedes Benz and the look of a James Bond Car. Great for weekend get a ways for two or Mercedes Benz Club events. These cars will start increasing in value soon and everyone will want one.
Still Great After Almost 80000 Miles
Robert Portney, MD, 04/18/2009
I purchased this car after my 2002 SLK had been in a terrible accident and I was able to walk away without any injuries. I loved my old car and wanted another SLK but didn't care for the new body style. I found this one on-line and purchased it from a local MB dealer and have had nothing but great service. I have an extended Mercedes warranty that will soon expire but I plan on keeping it until either this fall or sometime next year. I would love to find another low mileage used SLK with the old body style but fear they may be getting too old. I have had NO PROBLEMS with my car and will consider a new SLK Mercedes.

Should I lease or buy a 2004 Mercedes-Benz SLK-Class?

Is it better to lease or buy a car? Ask most people and they'll probably tell you that car buying is the way to go. And from a financial perspective, it's true, provided you're willing to make higher monthly payments, pay off the loan in full and keep the car for a few years. Leasing, on the other hand, can be a less expensive option on a month-to-month basis. It's also good if you're someone who likes to drive a new car every three years or so.
