2007 Mercedes-Benz SLK-Class SLK280 2dr Convertible (3.0L 6cyl 6M)


While the SLK 280 is a fun convertible to drive, Mercedes missed the mark on a number of fine points. With top down, wind noise negates any conversation or music listening. The cup holders are poorly made and located in a position that blocks your view to the right. The weight (lack of) of the car makes it very dangerous to drive in the rain. It floats and hydroplanes in puddles. Storage is extremely limited and the glove box is filled completely with the cd-changer. Each oil change is over $300 (no options for less) and all they do is "inspect" the car and change the oil! The retractable roof worked perfectly every time and the neck scarf heater is the best feature of the car.

Best Features

Neck scarf. Comfortable seats. navigation was good.

Worst Features

Cup holders are a joke. More interior storage. A normal price for an oil change. Rear right light does not ever light with fog lights on.
