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


Mercedes finally made over the SLK into a true sports car. Great pickup power, smooth new 7 speed automatic overpowers the stick! More roomy than the former design. Exterior looks are outstanding. Picked mine up in Europe and loved its performance on the Autobahn. SL fans, try this one for size and pocket $40,000!

Best Features

V-6 performance! Quick, smooth automatic transmission. Must order the "airscarf"! Top down in 50 degree weather, yet warm as toast with the airscarf and heated seats. The new navigation system is much improved over last year's. Satellite radio with 7 speakers is great.

Worst Features

Only improvement I recommend is the cup holder. It's at the top of the dash at a 20 degree angle. Don't put a full cup of coffee in it or it will spill over when you take off! Command system takes a while to master! Suggest you study it before you try to use it.
