This car I'll keep!

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


After enjoying (yawn) several years' driving the SLK 320, I could not resist the SLK 350 with its leaps and bounds improvements. This vehicle is an altogether different animal than its predecessor (think cheetah rather than, say, tabby cat). Opt for the manual transmission for an honest sports car experience (urban driving need not be an obstacle). The MB SLK 350 is an agile, beautiful, and extremely comfortable ride.

Best Features

Favorites include heated seating and neck ventilation making comfortable top-down 40 degreee F. driving; a headrest that actually rests the head; speed. . . true speed; tighter, smoother gearing; and, an elegantly menacing stance.

Worst Features

Wishlist items include: better lit and configured buttons and dials; more wood with "wood trim" option; garage door opener as std equip't; less awkward interior storage access; better rear "surround" sound with the 9 speaker option; and, a growl rather than a loud purr to the engine.
