Watch The Roof On This Car
By Bill Anderson on
1999 Mercedes-Benz SLK-Class SLK230 Sport 2dr Convertible
I have had this car for approximately 2months now, and I'm a bit disappointed. I have to say this car doesn't get as many looks as the Z3 that my sister owns. I thought the roof was one of the great things about this car until I started having trouble with it about a week after I bought it and the dealer doesn't want to fix it. It's going to cost me $850 just to get the roof working, and $350 to fix a balljoint. For as expensive as it was when it was new, I don't think it should have these problems already with only 60,000 miles on it. But I have to say I do like driving it when it's not in the shop. I just have to be careful, when the sun goes down the top doesn't come up out of the trunk.
I thought the hardtop was a great feature. A glass back window for a convertable was nice.
I think the CD player should be standard for the money. My car doesn't even have a cassette player.
