Best sports car I ever owned

2004 Mercedes-Benz SLK-Class SLK230 Kompressor 2dr Roadster (2.3L 4cyl S/C 6M)


I have owned many sports cars over my 45 years of driving, and this is the best yet. The handling is good, and reliability is tops. In nearly three years of ownership, it has not had any serious issues. Tail light recall is the only thing it has been in for other than the periodic maintenance that is covered by the warranty. It is such a keeper I am tempted to simply hang onto it for many years, instead of my usual three year trade. Kudos to Mercedes engineers for a fine vehicle.

Best Features

The basic handling of the vehicle is excellent. Good road handling and steering.

Worst Features

If I had one wish, it would be that the trunk would fit my golf clubs. Hate to have them next to me in the front seat. Altho, I have been able to fit them by taking them out of the bag and putting them in separate from the bag, then the bag on top. But then, can't put the top down.
