Fun but has a Dangerous flaw
By rsdeepsea on
Vehicle2001 Mercedes-Benz SLK-Class SLK 230 Kompressor 2dr Convertible (2.3L 4cyl S/C 6M)
ReviewFun car to drive, very fast and sturdy. Reliable until my wife spilled a drink on gear shifter under cup holders, transmission locked up.
Luckily she was in the driveway. Have read of people doing this @ 65mph and the car automatically skidding to a halt! That could kill someone! How does Mercedes not have to recall that and waterproof the PC board for the shifter? Right this second trying to dry it out so it will run again, hopefully without needing a new $700 PC board.
BTW, removing/connecting battery cable requires a code to activate your radio again or you drive in silence: call the dealer for code.
Best FeaturesAutomatic convertible top always gets attention when put down in parking lots.
Worst FeaturesFix the PC boards under the shifter. Surprised people haven't been killed by that. Seats are uncomfortable on extended trips. Can't see traffic lights from low roof/ seat back against rear firewall.
