1998 Mercedes-Benz SLK 230 2.3
Complete rubbish - do NOT buy!
Head gasket blown.
Heater started dripping water onto passenger's side.
Transmission blown, 2nd gear would not engage.
Air flow meter changed twice a year.
Supercharger blown (2200 euro replacement from MB).
Intermittent electrical faults.
Rust on body work due to bad quality paint prep.
Ladies and Gents.
This is unquestionably the worst car that I have ever owned, absolutely everything that could go wrong, went wrong.
It is very uncomfortable on long trips and very much unreliable. In my three year period of ownership, I ended up being best friends with the people in the MB garage. To be completely honest, I would have paid to get someone to take it off my hands in the end.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
