    Love It — Great sports car for the money Good gas mileage Comfortable on long trips but limited trunk space with top down All of the early slk have problems with peeling dash and rear lights premature burnout Not a daily driver unless you live in warm climate

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

    Pros: Sporty, fun car to drive.  Great looking, great handling

    Cons: Costly to repair

    Brilliant — I really enjoyed driving this car it was easy to handle and rode very well. I enjoyed riding with the top down and letting the wind blow through my hair. As well as the looks I got while riding in it!

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: This was the most fun car I ever owned.  Classy, fun and attractive..........ooops was supposed to be talking about the car!   All jokes aside I am going to miss my Benz!

    Cons: A little bit on the pricey side when it comes to repairs.  But you get what you pay for.

    Can't Be Beat. Will Post Pictures — Purchased 2 silver 1998 mercedes slk 230s. One has blue leather interior and the other red leather interior. Not sure which one I like best. Got a good deal on both because they were wrecked but were easy fixes. They are fast, beautiful,fun and handle great! The blue one is completed and on the road. Rare supercharged cars.

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

    Pros: Love the hardtop convertible!  Love the looks!  People love it at the car shows ask to sit in it to get picture taken.

    Cons: Maybe the stereo could have a stronger base.

    A Fun Third Car To Drive Next To The Family Van And The Executive Sedan. — * Performance: 193 hp for a two-seater gets you going up to 250 kph (155 mph) like a marvel (oh yes, I have driven that speed many times). * Quality: I bought it used with four previous owners, as a nine year old car with 102,000 km (63,380 miles). Since then it has only few repairs. Since it has a hard top, it can operate in winter just a well as in the summer. * Appearance: stunning beauty. * Cost of ownership: The way I drive, it consumes lots of gas, about 14 litres / 100 km (approx 17 mpg), but you should be able to drive it more efficiently with 10l / 100km (23 mpg). Fun factor: if you like driving fast, with nothing over your head but the open skies, this baby is yours.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Fast, fun, furious.

    Cons: Has only two seats and a small trunk when the roof is down.

    Super Cool (when It First Came Out) — Was lucky enough to be one of the first few people to drive this car around in the UK as it had been pre ordered in Germany before it was put into production. Fantastic car that REALLY performed well and was quite an attention grabber when it first came out. One of the first hardtop convertibles on the market I believe.

    Pros: Super Cool (when it first came out).

    Cons: Not so much anymore

    Great Summer Car For Reasonable Money — This car is really great to enjoy summer in. The electrical convertible si really cool and since it's basically a foldable hardtop you won't need to worry about bad weather either. Only basic comfort, though you wouldn't expect more. Loads practically nothing (since the roof folds into the trunk). Still quite enjoyable and the 2,3 litre supercharged engine is suprisingly quick and sounds good.

    Pros: Convertible
    Foldable hardtop
    Engine

    Cons: Loads nothing
    Noisy in the coupé (because its a cab..)
    Pretty high fuel consumption
    Expensive parts
