Too much fun!

by SLK fan from Houston | July 11, 2010

Bought an SLK 4 months ago, and it's been a so much fun to drive. It's our weekender car, and we have the top down 80% of the time. Handling is superb, and acceleration is great on the SLK320. I can't imagine what the SLK32 is like!

Very Fun, Reliable, and Safe Convertible

by Mercedes for Life from Charlotte, NC | January 31, 2008

A lot of fun and great in the sun. Very safe, as I've been hit by an SUV; a lot of damage to the car and not a scratch on me. Mercedes Benz builds incredibly safe cars, even the small ones like the SLKs

More GT ripper than Race-track Fiend

by AMG=OMG!!! from Danbury, CT | November 4, 2007

SLK 32 is faster than the SLK 55 but not as feature-filled. Retractable hard-top is priceless. Fast when the transmission software work, needs reflashing almost annually however. No major mechanical problems after 4 years which weren't covered by warranty. Expensive tires which last about 1 year with aggressive driving. AMG parts are even more expensive than already expensive standard MB parts. Despite all that, you can't help but smile profusely while driving this precision machine. I don't think the handling is great enough to keep up with other "sports" cars, i.e. Z4 or Boxster on the track but, the engine pull/torque is fierce for such a small car and you can activate the save-your-bacon ESP with very little effort. I find the seats very comfortable but you'll have to try for yourself. Hands-Free phone is a must as you need both hands to drive this beastie safely. Rear-wheel drive is a must in a sports care and some throttle-steering is possible with this car but again it's not really made for the track. Not too bad in the snow with snow tires, and keep to level ground with reasonable snow accumulation. Traction control helps immensely. Do not underestimate this machine as a "chick-car" as many do with the older SLK's. In anyone's hands (male or female) this car goes very fast in a straight line and is a lot of fun to drive. I reccommend it highly for people that like to drive. So turn off the radio, drop the top, apply shades and try not to smile TOO much!

Nothing but fun !

by I love this car ! from Chadds Ford, PA | January 25, 2007

I bought this car used and it just gets better with time. The folding hardtop convertable as well as its sporty appearance makes this car a real head turner. Excellent handling & suspension makes driving a pleasure again! Other than an oil change, there has been no need to return the car for service. Worth the money !
