"I got mine as a present to myself after 12 years of marriage. I had a headon car wreck and honestly believe that this car helped save my life! It talked me thru the accident! Was in the repair shop for over 6 months--in fact it should have been totaled after spending over 12K on it Now it's constantly in the alignment shop for the bent frame and I probably just chose the wrong repairman to do the job!
It's my favorite to drive but the top has an alignment problem which takes away from the car. And oh yeah, one of the 3 computers stopped functioning which operates the dome lights but being a 2 seater, it's nearly impossible to not see anyone in it!
It's great on gas mileage especially if you keep the oil changed! If I could afford a new one, I would buy it and have my name put on the windshield!"
"I've had my 2003 SLK230 for five years and have loved every minute of driving this car. It's responsive - I can easily merge at highway speeds from a short entrance ramp or quickly stop when traffic is unpredictable during rush hour. And the car looks good doing it. Putting the top down is easy and always intrigues bystanders when I'm in a parking lot. Getting 25 mpg city and 34 hiway is a bonus. It's had routine maintenance which I think has kept it in top running condition, no surprises or unexpected repairs to date."
"I bought my SLK 230 as a pre-owned certified vehicle in 2005. One of the best cars I've ever had. It's a fun car to drive, even more when the top is down. The car has been running without major mechanical problems for the past 5 years.. The only downside to the car is getting into it when the door cannot be open fully (e.g. in a parking lot next to other cars)."
