2006 Mercedes-Benz SLK-Class SLK280 2dr Convertible (3.0L 6cyl 6M)


I recently traded in my BMW 328is for the Mercedes slk280. I looked into the BMW z4, Porsche boxster, and the Mercedes CLK in addition to the SLK. Besides some very minor interior design detail flaws the car is a perfect match. The dealership was a major factor in purchasing. Since BMW left me with a sour taste due to their poor customer service in the repair department. I chose the Mercedes which ranked in my opinion neck and neck with the z4. Mercedes service and responsiveness was out of this world. The entire transaction was effortless and w/o a doubt a fine deal all around. Absolutely no regret. SLK280 w/stand. Trans was more than powerful. The automatic version wasn't as fun.

Best Features

Smart key and auto roof off. Concierge service.

Worst Features

The air scarf and better audio speakers should be standard. I settled for a model in dealer inventory and wished I had upgraded to air scarf package and better audio. You can't even upgrade to a 6 disk CD changer after market which was disappointing.
