Mercedes-Benz SLK Roadster 200K 2d (02) (2002/02) - Owner Review

A wonderful drive. Great exhaust note and love the supercharger whine as you accelerate. Ignore all the rubbish about not getting the 6-speed manual - it IS a sports car after all! HOWEVER, it's appalling in the snow due to rear wheel drive ...

Mercedes-Benz SLK Roadster (96-04)

Value

5 out of 5

No doubt about it, they ARE expensive to buy new, but hey quality has a price. We initially looked at getting a second-hand one but if you were prepared to wait, it was cheaper and you got it to your specification.

Costs

5 out of 5

Apart from purchase price, a very cheap car to run. 36MPG and insurance about £550 a year. Have a service contract with local M-B dealer, which costs £20 a month for 3 years all in.

All the necessary kit comes as standard. Shop around for insurance though, as some companies will try and force you to get a Tracker fitted.

Service

5 out of 5

First rate service - always able to fit you in and provide you with a courtesy car.
