1999 Mercedes-Benz SLK-Class SLK230 Sport 2dr Convertible


I have had the car about 1.5years now and I have to say this car is a mixed bag. While its fun to drive, comfy for long rides, enjoyable in general it looses a lot of luster because its plagued with so many problems. Many cheap problems like peeling dash paint, rubbing c pillar, etc. Do your research before you get this car or you may regret it dearly, as I have. The car since I bought it used as averaged a breakdown or malfunction ever 1.5 months, not an okay record for a car this expensive. My Starmark warranty is up and I will be getting rid of the car unfortunately.

Best Features

Worst Features
