2006 Mercedes SLK350 – The Mercedes-Benz SLK was clearly created for people who have succeeded in life, acquired a significant chunk of disposable income, and are seeking to recapture the thrill of youth. Nothing wrong with that, and the 2006 SLK delivers as advertised. This has always been a good-looking little roadster that’s easy to live with, with Mercedes cachet and a stowaway hard top that turns the car into a closed coupe with the touch of a button. Nearly all options are available individually, including heated seats ($690), Sirius Satellite Radio ($500), CD changer ($430), upgraded brown Nappa Leather ($400), and run-flat tires ($260). Limited Designo packages ($7,950), which offer unique paint and interior color schemes, are available, including Chablis, Graphite and Espresso editions. The roadster boom of the mid-1990s created a host of cars in this class, covering a broad range of prices. Machines such as the Mazda Miata, Audi TT, and BMW Z4 have their own strengths and unique appeal. Within that mix, the Mercedes SLK is better than ever, with more choices, and all the cachet that goes with the three-pointed star. Whether the preference is show or go, the SLK is definitely worth a look.
While it may be a little hot this summer to leave the top down for long drives, Fall is just around the corner. With that in mind, there is never a better time than now to purchase a great roadster to drive and enjoy for only $20k. All of the specs for a 2006 SLK 350 can be found online so we won’t bore you here with technical jargon. Instead we will let you know what this vehicle needs and what sets it apart from others. We perform an inspection on every vehicle that arrives in inventory and could only find small cosmetic issues on this one. Due to being 16 years old, there is light fading of the clear on the front bumper, rear sail panels, and front passenger rim. We also noticed some small chips/cracks on the lower front spoiler. There are also light scratches on the dash that can be seen in the photos. All these small flaws can only be seen when you are very close up to them. What sets this SLK apart from others on the market is first that it is the 268 horsepower SLK350, not the lower powered SLK280. The second huge difference is the presence of the Graphite Designo Package that really gives this SLK a great look! The previous owner took special care to maintain his beloved Mercedes and recently spent $4k making sure everything mechanical was in tip-top condition. And as a final bonus, this SLK has only 84k miles.
