Fun Car needs improved quality control

Vehicle2000 Mercedes-Benz SLK-Class SLK230 Kompressor 2dr Convertible
ReviewThis is a spectacular car to drive -
heads turn and eyes pop when the hardtop
goes up and down. Though service was
excellent, I've had too many incidental
problems: the roof failed 2X, Dash
warning indicators 2X; A/C; Bose
receiver quit; tailight shorted; etc
etc. But is it FUN to drive! My wife
never cared much about cars but loves
to drive this one.
Best FeaturesDry road handling is on rails. It turns heads like few cars and in the lower speeds accelerates like few cars can, all without abusing occupants. And it's FUN to drive.
Worst FeaturesMore adjustable seats. And definitely better quality control. My two American -made MLs have had 0 problems over a combined 4 years while this German-made precision SLK has had a dozen trips to MB for warranty work! But is it ever fun to drive.
