A true sports car! by An MSN Autos Consumer on 03/12/2013. Trim: 2006 Mercedes-Benz SLK SLK55 AMG, Owned less than 1 year.
Pros: Handling, acceleration=AWESOME!!! Beautiful styling!
Cons: Who designed that cup holder???
Overall review: I found this jewel a week ago with only 11K miles on it. Vehicle had been garaged all its life and was in perfect showroom-like condition. This is my first sports car. It was very affordable; an awesome buy for the fraction of the cost of a new one. I'm smitten, in love with the sound of the V8. I'll never date again; I've found my truelove! :)

Outstanding. by Konkapot on 02/14/2013. Trim: 2006 Mercedes-Benz SLK SLK280, Owned less than 1 year.
Pros: I absolutely love this car. Handles great, easy to park, looks incredible. Not super common. The F1-inspired front fascia makes me smile every time I look at it. More than fast enough for normal people; freeway onramps are an absolute blast. Truthfully did not buy it for it's convertable-ness, but surprisingly, we've used this feature every weekend since purchase. The complaints about trunk space are really disappointing; unless you live out of your car there is plenty of space in there, even with the convertible top down. This is not a car you're going to take to Home Depot and buy a metric ton of pea gravel, but that should be self evident. I'm 6'2"/250lbs and have plenty of room.
Cons: None really, although I bought it knowing that it wasn't an SUV or minivan. The glovebox is completely filled with the CD changer, but there is ample storage space in the driver's compartment. When I raise the convertible top there is a little piece of rubber window trim that gets caught in the window sill. If you want to add XM/Sirius radio it requires a hole drilled in the trunk; struck me as odd until I realized that, obviously, you can't put it in the roof.
Overall review: Outstanding, 100% satisfied. Would buy again. And again. And again. One thing overlooked in buying an MB is the usually good dealer support; I had a burnt out side marker light that required the removal of a fender to replace; local MB dealer did it in about 20 minutes and charged me $15.00. When I need tires I order them online and the dealer installs them for $10 each or something. If it takes a long time, they provide a loaner. This is my second MB and will not be my last.

The Best of Everything by Pastor John on 12/04/2012. Trim: 2006 Mercedes-Benz SLK SLK55 AMG, Owned 2 years.
Pros: The car is beautiful, it handles very well, and it is fast. I liked it so much I have two, a 350 for my wife and a 55 amg for me. The amg is a real muscle car in a sports car package. Cars in the slk's class are really no comparison so the amg can go after larger prey. I'm 6'4 and 250lbs and I am comfortable in the car. I can't say that with other sports cars.
Cons: Not much.
Overall review: This car is the best of everything in a sports car. It is stunning to look at, it handles like its on rails, and it is very fast. It is fun to drive every day, and on the weekends. You dont see one everywhere you look like Porche or BMW. It gives the impression of a car that is much more expensive than it is. I'm a big guy and I fit comfortably. Buy this car you will love it.

Great Purchase!!!! by Sharon .......Atlanta, Georgia on 10/23/2012. Trim: 2006 Mercedes-Benz SLK SLK280, Owned 5 years.
Pros: I live in Atlanta and traffic is hectic here. I wanted to get a Beetle to conserve on gas. My husband pointed this car out to me. Great for my size I'm 5'3 small frame. This vechicle is easy for me to handle. I have the s550 too. I was intimidated by my s550 due to the size but in time it became a breeze! This 280 silver baby blue SLK was nothing to drive. It handles well I can make a u turn, get in and out of traffic, pick up is great! I love my color.It is a great car for anyone who wants sport and a stylish car. Sound system is great even witht the top down!! Great on gas about $60.00 to fill up compared to $80 on my s550. Glad my husband got this for me. Both cars are lookers..Smile !!!
Cons: The cup holder is not in the best place. I think it should be placed away from the radio. I will never use the cup holder. Too afraid of a spill. My husband is average height ....5'11 if any taller, not enough leg room.
Overall review: Overall pros out number the cons Im glad I have this car.Happy my husband picked this car for me... Good choice honey !!! I can park my s550 and drive only when I need too!!!!

The ultimate week end toy. by An MSN Autos Consumer on 04/09/2012. Trim: 2006 Mercedes-Benz SLK SLK350, Owned less than 1 year.

Cons: Differcult to get out of the car in a parking area because the door requires a great deal of room to fully open.
Overall review: Love the car, best purchase I ever made. My wife is crazy about the car.
