Common sense tells a person, especially an educated one, to render assistance, unless you have something to hide. I wonder if she is an illegal to boot ????

The SLK230's 2.3-liter DOHC inline-4 supercharged engine produces 185 hp at 5300 rpm and 200 lb-ft of torque at 2500 rpm. Maximum boost from the intercooled Eaton supercharger is 7 psi.

While these numbers are competitive, the sound of the engine and exhaust are not. The cheap sounding noises are out of character for a $40,000 vehicle, especially when you consider a $20,000 Mazda Miata with its stock exhaust sounds more impressive than the SLK's. You would think a simple change in exhaust system would cure the problem, but someone already has gone that route and reports an aftermarket sport exhaust merely exasperates the pitiful noise. Until Mercedes attends to this issue, the most common solution is just to turn up the volume on the Bose stereo.

Another perplexing statistic is the SLK230's 0-to-60 mph time of 7.2 seconds ... with 5-speed automatic or 5-speed manual transmission. Going against logic that manual transmissions almost always return quicker acceleration times, the SLK's balky shift linkage is to blame, as well as the higher gear ratios which require a shift into 3rd gear to achieve 60 mph (2nd gear maximum is 58 mph). What the manual can offer is more driver control, but with the compromises already going against it, the SLK seems more proper with an automatic.

ASR traction control is standard and defeatable via a center console switch. Both doors are equipped with side-impact airbags, and the seat belts have impact pretensioners.

Sorry, I didn't post that that is a review from auto week on the car.

No one should drive a vehicle such as this unless they have the ABILITY to.

An MB is not just a Buick, or Lincoln. It's a car built on racing. If you can't handle the car, you shouldn't have the ability to buy it.

As a registered Nurse, I don't understand how you can be illegal as well. It is a state regulated position, is my understanding
