I bought the car new. Love it and still do. However, there is a command center issue that apparently Mercedes can't identify..but whatever it is, it drains the battery when the car sits for lest than a week without being driven. Now it appears that it takes 24hrs or less for it to drain without driving. Mercedes can't seem to figure out what the problem is but I suspect it has always been an issue.
Defect w/battery. The rain overflows fm the right side, into the battery box. There is a tiny hole for the rain to exit. The hole gets clogged up causing the rain water to back up into the electrical. Ruined A/C, Heat, cruise control, radio, etc. A total nightmare. I pushed the little black rubber stopper in & don't have the problem anymore. This is a manufacturer defect. Cost me thousands. The front bumper is also defective. 9 out of 10 are cracked. 1. It's too low 2. It's too flimsy. 3. It's high enough to scrape the top of a yellow cement parking block. Hello! Now that USA owns MB... starting to turn into crap!
I've owned SLK since they first came out.
It looks awesome! Fun to Drive.
The 06 has lots of problems. Now the radio is making a noise. No music just the same loud repetitious noise.
1. Reinvent the front bumper!
too low & flimsy
2. Make a larger exit hole for rain to exit fm windshield instead of back washing into the electrical.
I am 56, no I am not having a midlife crisis. But I did need a little zing , so i found the most perfect car to ram rod around in. I really love my car, It is fun, you get the looks, you feel like a million bucks, and the 06, was very reasonably priced. LOVE LOVE LOVE it!
the top goes up and down with the touch of a finger, never gets caught in the rain, with the top down, takes about 30 seconds to bring it up or down.
maybe the interior could be prettier, with a wood design. But no improvement really necessary
