Sunday crusing in South Florida by El Daddy on 10/18/2011. Trim: 2009 Mercedes-Benz SLK300, Owned 3 years.
Pros: We have this car for 3 years and we love it. We leased it, and we are keeping it. Lot's of looks and power.
Cons: Keep it out of deep puddles, we had to replace an engine because it sucked water into the intake and blew the motor.
Overall review: The White color is beautiful

1 Flying SLK350 by Dr Rick, Los Angeles, Ca on 11/19/2009. Trim: 2009 Mercedes-Benz SLK350, Owned less than 1 year.
Pros: The SLK350 is very comfortable in the comfort setting and thus far I have bested most BMW's in the sports setting. It charges down or up any road as if one has to hold it back and does so without effort. It has better headroom for tall drivers than the BMW Z4 and has excellent instrument layout. With the top up, it is very quiet. The trunk is also fairly large considering that it is a hard drop-top and it has to go somewhere.
Cons: Nothing so far.
Overall review: I test drove a lot of sports cars (Porsche, BMW, MBZ, Audi, Nissan) and always seemed to come back to the MBZ SLK 350. It gets lots of looks and drives like a dream. It actually feels like I am flying a Cessan 150 aerobat. This is a car that I look forward to driving 70 miles to/from work everyday.

Everyday I drive I laugh my head off by SolidGold on 06/29/2009. Trim: 2009 Mercedes-Benz SLK350, Owned less than 1 year.
Pros: This is a car of a lifetime. I don't work for MBUSA. This is my second SLK, I bought a year end '07 SLK 280. This car beats that. The GPS is up to date, the engine is a dream. NO PROBLEMS and I have over 5000 miles. MPG around 25 city and freeway driving. I love this vehicle.
Cons: Minor things like one touch roof opening. I wish the plexiglass windscreen wasn't so expenisve.
Overall review: This car with it's ride, it's engine speed and power, and hard top convertible is a driving experience every single day, I have the biggest smile on my face.

1 Expensive Lemon by SEM San Carlos, Ca on 06/23/2009. Trim: 2009 Mercedes-Benz SLK300, Owned less than 1 year.
Pros: It is a beautiful car, that is when I actually have possession of it. See cons...
Cons: The car has had nothing but problems. See overall review...
Overall review: I leased a new 2009 SLK in Sep. 2008. Within 400 miles of driving said vehicle, the check engine light came on. A Mercedes dealership added about a qt. of oil and sent me on my way. Within a week or so the light came on again. I took the car back in and another qt. or so of oil was added yet again. The light came on a third time so I took the car back in for further tests where it was revealed the car was burning oil, due to a "scored engine block". This particular defect required an engine replacement at a mere 1700 miles. Some of the problems I have had with the car: 1-engine replacement 2-leaky roof 3-a rattle they can not seem to repair 4-squeaky seat 5-a ticking sound in the engine, after the engine replacement 6-a growling noise in the rear axel area The vehicle only has about 5500 miles on it and still has a variety of the above listed problems.

Sports Car of the Year! by Benz Man from England on 12/03/2008. Trim: 2009 Mercedes-Benz SLK350, Owned less than 1 year.
Pros: I work for Mercedes-Benz as an After Sales Manager, I have driven and tested the SLK350, this is another typically beutifully crafted Mercedes. The acceleration is unbelieveable and awesome around corners. I love the SLK and Mercedes overall.
Cons: Nothing, as mentioned earlier, it could be a bit bigger, but hey it's a sports car!
Overall review: An awesome vehicle that I would recommend to any driver!
