"Got this 2006 with low miles and it is so fun to drive. I especially like the hardtop feature. No more ragtops to replace. Car is solid and drive smooth. A lot of features on the car but a little disappointed in the phone feature. Has controls for bluetooth but no bluetooth installed. Going to buy one off ebay for like 200. The car finish is excellent and the paint looks great still. A few rock chips but it is 10 years old now. The interior has held up great with no signs of wear or tears. Especially like the heated and cooling seats in this car. Power everything on this baby. The sound is solid when you rev it up. Brakes are excellent stop on a dime. The tires are going to be replaced but for old tires pretty good ride. Going to go with performance tires V or W rating. Yokahamas look good right and the prices are fines for replacement tires."

With the top up!

"My SLK spent most of it's life in Florida and now in MO for a couple years. It is in excellent shape as I have kept up with all maintenance as well been garaged since new. I am getting too old to get into a roadster and want to purchase a new or used CLA-45 AMG!"

"Considering the street-race offers from rice-rocket drivers, my 2008 provides mental smiles and no need to respond. I’ve logged all but the first 4K of 36K miles and enjoyed each mile, with the top up or down. MB launched a winner with the sexy little 280SLK; each time I approach the sporty, red vehicle from the front I wonder if anyone else feels the exhilaration I do just by its appearance alone. Someone else may have my 280SLK, but only when they pry it from my cold, arthritic, ego."

Cons: "Some interior squeaks"

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 10

"While I miss the quick acceleration of my previous BMW turbo-charged car, this has adequate power and handles better than any car I've owned in a while. I bought it recently at 5 years old but with VERY low mileage and it is impressive to say the least. The only issue I have had at all is that the audio accessory plug in the glovebox, using the Mercedes adapter cables, does not like to interface with 'anything'. I'm still researching and maybe I will find a solution. Otherwise, the car is comfortable, fun to drive, the top works perfectly and when it is up there are NO wind leaks at all - none. For a car this small, there is amazing room in the trunk for small to mid-size luggage with the top down and stowed. And there is a spare tire! The only reason I marked quality down to 9 is that the material or mounting of the console and some interior features causes some squeaks when pressed. My prior BMW had no interior squeaks at all. I really like this car and driving it is awesome!"

"Purchased in April 2014 with 34,000 miles. It is pristine, and a real blast to drive. Not many SLK's in the Midwest, thus his roadster is a real "head turner". Love retractible hardtop"
