Can I get a SLK that cheap?

If you’re looking for a quality car, that’s very fun to drive and not too expensive, then the SLK isn’t a bad choice at all.

The Mercedes SLK is indeed a very classy looking car. Drivers are guaranteed to sit in luxury and comfort whilst getting a thrilling ride.

You can get a pretty good SLK for under £5000. They are likely to be reaching the 100,000 mark and also be up to 10 years old. However with Mercedes-Benz you can be assured that they are built to last. Quality of the engine and mechanics within are very stable when kept in good condition. Look out for cars that have exceeded the average mileage per year too (12,000).  A full service history is also a must.

Models from 1998-2004, which would be your target, have many beneficial features. The acceleration is one the best things about the car.  You get plenty of kick from the start and with that come excellent handling to control the car. That boost and acceleration will be there naturally not as effective but still enough to have fun with.
