SLK320 - amazing machine and lots of fun... not 230
The only things that have gone wrong with the car are the power seats relay, and one of the doors hinges. Oh yeah the windshield, but that was from a rock on the freeway. I won't blame MB for that.
I have had other MBs in the past; E420, E320 and a 98 SL500. Even I liked the other models, I absolutely love the SLK. It is amazing and lots of fun with plenty of power. It looks beautiful with the top up or down. Plus it is a hard top.
I sold it recently with 171000 miles on it, and it still ran great. You could not tell how many miles it had unless you looked at the miles on the cluster.
If you are in the market to buy one, I would not recommend the 4 cylinder kompressor, they have more problems, don't sound or perform the same. Do some research. The V6 engine on the SLK320 will run forever, but the same I could not say for the 4 cylinder Kompresor. Test drive them both if you've got doubts.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
