"05 SLK350 LOADED W/ALL OPTIONS,STRONG ACCELERATION,GREAT HANDLING,STUNNING LOOKS AND STYLING. WISH IT HAD SPEAKERS BETWEEN THE SEATS OVER STORAGE CONSOLE. REPLACED MY SOLSTICE WITH THIS,THAT WAS FUN,THIS IS CLASS. IM PROUD THAT I CAN DRIVE THIS ONE OUT OF THE OFFICE PARKING LOT AT QUITTING TIME. WILL UPGRADE TO 55 AMG SERIES IN A YEAR OR SO. TREAT YOURSELF TO ONE,YOU WILL NOT BE SORRY."
"uncomfortable seats, difficult to get in and out of the vehicle. Steering wheel panel and front panel will start peeling after a short time (2 years). I tried replacing these items and the cost was astronomical..........
otherwise nice ride......."
"This is the second SLK I have owned in the last 5 years. Got the new 2008 280 in May, with all the options. Love the car, hate the fact that the one I purchased this time at MB in Westwood Ma has been in the shop 4 times for roof issues. Don't buy this car unless you can afford the maintenance or purchase the maintenance plan. I hate the hassel of service and repair at MB ....I rather be out driving as I have always enjoyed the performance ride this roadster provides."
"Love the look and performance. Plan on breaking the front skirt immediately-- way too low. Nav system is useless-- worst I've ever seen and total waste of money. That said, fun car to drive, quiet with hardtop up, handles great, looks terrific. I have the first year model and some issues are expected, but MBZ really dropped the ball with the expensive and useless nav, and the low skirt. Worth it overall though."
"Although some reviewers note comfort issues, I have found the driving position and seat support very comfortable.
Quality of fit and finish is good but with MB, you expect great.
Performance is strong, combined with 6 speed, the V-6 pulls strongly but requires hi revs to deliver full potential.
Front skirt is too low. Despite diligence the driver will find that it will drag over curb stops, only a matter of time."
