"This Mercedes SLK320 is one of the nicest roadsters out there. I have owned a Porsche Boxster, and a couple Japanese roadsters, this 320 out performs them. It handles well on corners and on the highway and is heavy and solid and does not get bullied by passing truck turbulence. It accelerates well. I had had very good luck with overall reliability. It is a comfortable drive, if I can pry it out of the clutches of my wife. I would recommend owning one."
"A very cool car. Seamless power,roadster ride. Not for tall people. It's kind of tight inside and I'm 5'8". Just a lot of fun to drive and be seen in. This is a car that wants to be driven fast. Wish we had an Autobahn in the U.S. It is ridiculous what you can get one for. Worth a look and a drive. What would rather be in ? A Mercedes or a Mazda?"
"I wanted something classy, sporty, and fun to drive and got it all with the SLK230. This is the most exciting car I've ever owned. I've had convertibles before and found the hard top to be an incredible advantage over the ragtop. Handling in snow was rough but I purchased an extra set of studded wheels for the winter and that problem was solved."
Pros: "CLASSY. FUN.INEXPENSIVE TO BUY GREAT LOOKS"
Cons: "SMALL, NO ROOM TO HAUL ANYTHING. 2 SEATS ONLY"

"The trade in on this car is way way to low for the value an owner gets in return. Kelly Book is so far off with this one. The only thing I have trouble with are a few of the many sensors having to be replaced over and over. Don't go over a speed bump to fast or a sensor will cause your car to stop running. The interior consul does not keep it's finish. Have repaired it twice and a mess again. Seats very comfy. Does good in snow I use snow tires during the season and it has never failed me. Drives through 14 inches like a dream. Gas mileage better then said I always ethanol free premium and synthetic Mobil oil. Repair cost is cheaper then any car I have ever had. Have had no major issues. Will run it til it dies it's a young 15 yr old. Only wish the headlights were cleanable glass lenses as they have lost their luster."
"This is a very fun car to drive, sporty and gotta love a convertible especially the design of the hard top. The minus about the car was once it was over the $50,000 mile mark first little things like the hydraulics in the hardtop failed then really expensive items - the complete dash gage panels failed and the sensor for the air bags - total cost to fix everything was right at $4,000. The car had less than $75,000 miles so was a disappointment in performance. The engine and transmission are great - no problems ever!"
