Fun to drive! by Powerfade, Crown Point, Indiana on 02/18/2012. Trim: 2008 Mercedes-Benz SLK SLK350 Roadster, Owned 3 years.

Pros: Great appearance, excellent handling, acceleration good enough, and the best I can still get a set of golf clubs in the trunk with the top down!
Cons: DON"T TRY TO DRIVE IT IN THE SNOW!...learned the hard way...lol
Overall review: I would recommend this car to anyone who wishes to experience a real sports car that is fun to drive and won't break the bank. Not the fastest, most powerful, but well worth the money for what it offers and what it is intended to do.

A Walter Middy Indy Car by An MSN Autos Consumer PollyO Orange County California on 12/15/2013. Trim: 2008 Mercedes-Benz SLK SLK55 AMG Roadster, Owned 3 years.

Pros: Very responsive. Quick acceleration, Paddle shifters give a sporty feel while the totally automatic is available and doesn't compromise performance. Handles quickly..novice drivers could get into trouble. Huge trunk for its size. Comfotably fits 1 l28'arge suitcase, one 2 22" cases with top down. The seats are comfortable for short trips and best suited for 6' or shorter people.. Good MPG and a 4 star sound system!
Cons: It has a ride like a sports car. You feel like you are sitting on the road. Not a "luxury ride". Has bind spots when backing out of parking spaces.
Overall review: I wouldn't trade my AMG55 for anything. The performance with the compact size is perfect for a city car that fits neatly into any parking space. It has enough snap and power to compete on Southern Califoia freeways.

Super peersonal sports car by Patrick Goochland VA on 04/29/2014. Trim: 2008 Mercedes-Benz SLK SLK280 Roadster, Owned 6 years.
Useful?
Pros: A reallly fun car with high standard MB build quality. Very quick, very agile, good mileage on highway if you're not hot rodding it.
Cons: Really doesn't like driving in snow and ice since the light weight and wide tires result in low value for lbs/in2.
Overall review: This is the second SLK I have owned from new. I kept the last one for 8 years; this should last for ten. As a personal sports car it combines quick and agile performance with the traditional MB build quality. What's not to like?

Perfect sports car! by Babz from Seattle on 01/29/2011. Trim: 2008 Mercedes-Benz SLK SLK55 AMG Roadster, Owned 1 year.
Useful?
Pros: This car has very impressive acceleration and braking ability. The seats are body hugging, which helps when cornering aggressively. Also has a decent trunk for the size of the car.
Cons: Absolutely nothing!
Overall review: Perfect car for those looking for an awsome driving experience. Refreshing to have a convertible that is as quiet as a standard hardtop.
