2008 Mercedes-Benz SLK review

Model

Mercedes-Benz SLK

Pros

Great appearance, excellent handling, acceleration good enough, and the best I can still get a set of golf clubs in the trunk with the top down!

Cons

DON"T TRY TO DRIVE IT IN THE SNOW!...learned the hard way...lol

Overall

I would recommend this car to anyone who wishes to experience a real sports car that is fun to drive and won't break the bank. Not the fastest, most powerful, but well worth the money for what it offers and what it is intended to do.

Pros

This car has very impressive acceleration and braking ability. The seats are body hugging, which helps when cornering aggressively. Also has a decent trunk for the size of the car.

Cons

Absolutely nothing!

Overall

Perfect car for those looking for an awsome driving experience. Refreshing to have a convertible that is as quiet as a standard hardtop.

Pros

Sharp looks, sharp performance, good fuel economy and open air motoring even on cool days with the airscarf.

Cons

A little pricey but still worth it.

Overall

Lots of fun, with some practicality left over

Pros

Having a previous 2003 MBZ convertible, trading it for a 2008 Roadster was a plus. Living in Anchorage, AK, having a roadster is not a choice you jump into that easily, but a good pair of studded tires, the nice stability it has and a good common-sense driver makes a perfect combination. The special edition came with several pluses, apart from the AMG package. The heated seats and scarfs are perfect for this environment when you have the hard top down. Aceleration wise is a lot better than the previous.

Cons

I like everything on this one.

Overall

Excellent car for the very exclusive few that appreciate a fine roadster.

Pros

Nothing

Cons

For those who live in the Northeast this is a death trap, forget about driving it if it snows the car cannot be controlled. Another major complaint the starter, on three separate occasions it failed and had to get it towed for service and one time they had to get the part shipped in from Germany because no one had it. I finally got fed up with it and threatened to cancel the lease because the car was a Lemon - the dealership gave us a new one but this is not a car worth your time.

Overall

Stay away from it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
