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


So yes the vehicle is great to look at and fun to drive. If you enjoy people staring and asking you how you can afford this vehicle than I recommend you buying one. However, I feel the vehicle being Mercedes and all they would have done better with a few things. The cup holder is right above the radio and a/c vents? Very uncomfortable and inconvenent place to set your drinks, very little support. There is no adjustment for the defrost function, it just blows out full force. So you are forced to turn in on and off when in use. Just recently the coating around the radio station program dials (0-9) has been peeling off. It seems to be due to the sun? This car is a convertible!

Best Features

It drives nice and the convertible top is fun.

Worst Features

Better cup holder location and better support. Normal, adjustable defrost function. There's no button inside the vehicle that will open the trunk? The radio buttons on the steering wheel do not go to preset stations, just searches. Replace the cheap coating around the radio dials that chips off
