Pros

Hardtop is better than soft top. Decent radio

Cons

Most everything.

Would Not Buy Again — Seats suck, leather is junk and wears quickly. Handles like crap. Paint was of poor quality. Wind screen was of poor design. Interior wasn't quality. Fit and finish not up to par for a german car. I expected far more than I got.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pretty much the whole package is great.

Cons

Getting out of the car...I'm 6'3"

For A 1st Generation Slk It's Great And The Newer Ones Are Even Better....and Faster. — I took a 3 week trip and covered 5000 miles this summer. The mileage best was 29.95 mpg. When I returned home I needed brakes but 110,000 is pretty good for the original brakes and it was only the front brakes.

Pros

Too much fun!

Cons

Wish it had more cargo space top-down.  I hate that it gets all my attention lately with the warm weather.

Fun Roadster That Becomes A Coupe! — The Benz that goes topless. All the niceties of a high end coupe like perforated leather seats, heated seats, dual climate control, power everything with the bonus of being a top down summer roadster that turns into a beautiful hard top coupe in 20 seconds. Still looks brand new after 10 years and drives like it left the show room.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Amazing Drive — Very good car specially in summer. Ladies love it. 2300 cc supercharge is an amazing engine. Even with the hardtop roof folded in the boot, it still have alot of space. It was the first hard top convertable made. Spot on Car.

A Blast To Drive — I love the fact that it's a hard-top convertible and the top goes right in the trunk. It's very fast and fun to drive. A little bit on the expensive side when it comes to gas. Oh and the ladies love it!!

My Review Of The Mercedes Benz Slk230 — This car is a fun little coupe, the chasis arent very stiff due to the convertible top, but still a blast to drive. And yes, I smoke stock WRXs! I really like how you can turn the traction control off, and the sportronic shifting is pretty fun too when you are bored. The maintenance is pretty high, but they give you a loaner new Mercedes, gas mileage is cool too, but it has a small tank cause its a small car...
