My Mercedes Rocketship
By Desmond Hirst on


2006 Mercedes-Benz SLK-Class SLK350 2dr Convertible (3.5L 6cyl 6M)


I love to drive this vehicle, particularly with the top down. I have a 7 speed automatic. I love the retractable hardtop and the air scarf system. I do not find the blind spots often mentioned in reviews, because the pillarless large side windows give outstanding vision. Fuel economy has been better than I expected. The only problem I have, is that the sport seats are a little hard, and can get a little uncomfortable on an extemely long trip (5 hours or more). Overall, driving this car is an exhilarating experience.

Best Features

Sports car feel and performance. Retractable hardtop. Acceleration. Rain sensing wipers. Memory seats. Air scarf system. V6 engine and fuel economy. Sportscar feel for the road.

Worst Features

Make seats adjustable for a softer feel.
