Great Car - Mediocre Quality
By Mark Hilliard on
Vehicle1999 Mercedes-Benz SLK-Class SLK230 Sport 2dr Convertible
ReviewThe styling of this car both inside and
out is excellent. MB seems to be
losing their edge on quality.
For a car just shy of $50,000, I would
expect a vehicle put together much
better. At 25,000 miles the dash
lights have gone out, A/C fan has quit,
windows do not fit tight (leak), door
are coming unglued and the central
locking system works intermittently.
MB is still good on service. All of
the above have been repaired (under
warranty) and a nice new E-Class was
provided while the repairs were done.
However, I remember not so long ago
when you bought a new MB you never had
to deal with these type of problems.
Best FeaturesEase of hardtop operation - heated seats.
Worst FeaturesMB - get with the program. Cassette players as a standard (CD as an option) is old technology. I rented a Hyundai from Hertz the other day - that $12,000 car has a STANDARD CD player...I would expect at least that in a $ 50,000 vehicle.
