2004 Mercedes-Benz SLK-Class SLK320 2dr Roadster (3.2L 6cyl 6M)


I bought the loaded 6-cyl model when it
first came out in August 2000. My wife
and I have driven it in all kinds of
good and bad weather (just make sure to
use HR-rated snow tires in the winter
though), have experienced the
incredible safety features (avoided
hitting a deer with complete control
the first trip out of town), and it
still garners compliments from people
of all age groups, who genuinely enjoy
looking at the car! Excellent service,
routine maintenace, solid
coupe/convertible for two. Having owned
several Bimmers, a Porsche, Acuras and
others, the SLK is proving to be the
best ever! Outstanding value.

Best Features

Power hardtop; traction control in slippery conditions; economy and response of the six-cylinder powerplant and beautifully mated 6-spd manu-auto); efficiency of design; utter quietness with hardtop up, and well managed wind noise at highway cruising speeds.

Worst Features

The exhaust system could be a bit quieter - the sporty sound is too agressive for my wife as it alarms her during spirited driving!
