Love It!
By Vic on


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


I have the limited edition for Breast Cancer - it was the right color, had the features I wanted and a donation to Breast Cancer is a bonus! Love the performance of the car, love the look, and I'm even amazed at the size of the trunk. I'm getting about 20mpg around town and around 30mpg on long trips (all that with the way *I* drive!) The suspension is excellent. This car takes corners like you wouldn't believe. Only minor negatives are related to the additional spoilers on the front. They look great, but it's VERY easy to bump them on inclined driveways. Also, first gear (manual shift, 6 gears) is VERY low.. good for starting on slopes, otherwise pretty much useless.

Best Features

Sound (engine while accelerating), performance, looks... just about everything.

Worst Features

Improve first gear - it's too low as it is.
