    Beautiful little car. Handles well, fast accelerator, good fuel mileage. Love the hardtop. No good reason to give it up, other than to own a Porsche.
    Power Ranked 2001 Porsche 911 better.
    "An engine designed for that. SLK is a great cross between a performance car and a fun to drive, sports car. I think the SLK is vastly more practical."
    Handling Ranked 2001 Porsche 911 better.
    "Quicker response. SLK is more like a conventional power steering, only tighter."
    Cargo Capacity Ranked 2001 Porsche 911 better.
    "With the two back seats, and the small front trunk, the 911 handles more luggage."
    Family Car Ranked 2001 Porsche 911 worse.
    "If its a family of two. Even then, not much room for a trip luggage."

    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.)

    Pros: Hardtop is better than soft top. Decent radio

    Cons: Most everything.

    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: Pretty much the whole package is great.

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

    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.)

    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.

    Pros: Best Summer car

    Cons: Check the engine oil leak in supercharge model

    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!!

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Fun to Drive

    Cons: None

    Pros: Hard op convertible, looks!

    Cons: No space for snowboard!

    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...

    Pros: Supercharged, convertible, sporty, turns on a dime

    Cons: Its a wanna be SL-500.  Its a middle-aged womans car.  Its automatic
