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


This car is really fun to drive. It handles well in the curves without being too harsh, and the 7 speed auto works well with the 2.8 litre engine. Good blend of power and mileage - about 24 mpg in town and 30 on the freeway. It has more head room than the Lexus SC 430 and the trunk fits our largest suitcase, even with the top down - not bad for a little car. Air scarf and heated seats work great. Standard radio is fair, and the stock Michelin Pilot Primacy tires are noisy. Everythng works perfect. I love the exterior appearance, top up or down, and the gray interior looks sharp. This car makes going to work, running errands, and seeking out scenic, windy roads a lot of fun.

Best Features

Retractable hardtop, exterior appearance, and that fun factor.

Worst Features

Improve the lumbar support and comfort of seats. Equip the car with quieter tires with equal grip and handling characteristics.
