Comfy entry level sports car! Would make a great first car. Very forgiving. by Kev from Charlotte NC on 10/11/2012. Trim: 2003 Mercedes-Benz SLK SLK230, Owned 4 years.
Pros: It has nice handling, Fun to drive Far more comfortable then several other comparable entry level sports cars Going 80mph+ on the highway I have consistently gotten over 35mpg. On my last trip I used 4.2 gallons on a 156mi drive. Very reliable, the only repair since I purchased it that was needed was a Mass Air Flow Sensor which cost me $90. Love the Bose speakers
Cons: The Bose stereo screen back-light died, replaced with a Sony Xplod 650UI. Needs better acceleration, is kinda sad compared to an S2K or 350Z It's a very heavy car and one of the least safe ELSC. The stock exhaust is very quiet compared to a g35/350z The roof started to leak in July 2012 very it was verryy minor and it went away with the application of "Gummi Pfledge Stift". Just make sure you check the screws in the middle of the black metal securing bar. Wish the front bumper was an few cm higher as got stuck on a parking chock once. Although it was my fault.
Overall review: I've owned this vehicle for over 4 years and I have loved it. It is a great car, has incredible fuel efficiency on highways(35mpg+) despite what the site claims. It looks a little outdated which can be fixed by simply buying new headlights. I love my Spyder halo lamps on it. and a new stereo makes the interior look more modern. I initially wanted to buy an S2K but this was a nice median between elegance and it especially after a few add-ons. It is pretty plain on the inside but I have always preferred minimal electronics when it comes to vehicles.
