2005 Mercedes-Benz SLK350 - Pros and Cons of Old vs. New
By chris on


2005 Mercedes-Benz SLK-Class SLK350 2dr Roadster (3.5L 6cyl 6M)


I previously owned a 2002 Mercedes-Benz
SLK230. My new 2005 SLK350 is a great
improvement in many ways, mostly due to
the design improvements. The exterior
is much more sleek, though I'm not
crazy about the back end of the car.
The car is wider, and a taller person
can fit in it more easily now. The
cheesiness of the interior has been
eradicated. The interior looks much
more elegant. The unfortunates are the
seats and the stereo. I don't feel the
seats are as comfortable as the earlier
model, and I think the stereo has a
lower quality sound. However, the pros
far outweigh the cons, and after having
this car for nearly two months, I like
it much better than my old version.

Best Features

1. exterior styling 2. faster retractable hardtop 3. larger trunk 4. much improved interior style 5. 7 speed automatic transmission 6. the ability to alter the position of the sun visors to the windows 7. the base wheels are very nice

Worst Features

1. the seats are far less comfortable than the older version 2. a better stereo speaker system (I have the best stereo package available) 3. the trunk was a lie that you could fit two golf bags in it. you can, but it is even more difficult than before, and requires smaller golf bags.
