MBZ SLK 230

Product Rating: 3.0 Recommended: Yes 

Pros: hard top convertible, and its a fine looking ride
Cons: unlikely primary vehicle if you are > 6'0"- and underpowered
The Bottom Line: perfect wife or g/f vehicle or heck if you are an average size male that is shorter than 6'0"


While the hard top convertible option is the best of what this car has to deliver I would like to also mention a few other observations over the past months.

The car is definitely HOT- slick, cool and the #1 vehicle for sunny, moderate temperature southern California. The car has a nice power ban at the mphs, 40-70; but fails to thrill at the start and while cruising the interstates beyond 70 mph.

Worth mentioning to each of my male counterparts is that while your wife is less than 6'0' tall and narrower than a man of equal height- I can share this fact from a 6"3", 240 lb man. If your wife or you (provided that you are only avg height and average width) want this car make sure you press the dealer to give you the car for hours if not for a whole day. The car is tiny, and narrow- not to mention that if your height is illproportioned from waist to head- you will not be able to see out of the windshield with the top attached.

Enjoy the look of the car, the ride and the moderate power that the MBZ supercharger provides. But if you are > 6"0" enjoy the very short trips you'll eventually make.
