Very disappointed

2001 Mercedes-Benz SLK-Class SLK 230 Kompressor 2dr Convertible (2.3L 4cyl S/C 6M)


I have had my SLK for 15 months - first
6 uneventful. Likes: Love the body
style and the retractable hardtop.
Little road noise. Car handles well
and is relatively comfortable - even on
trips for several hours. Dislikes: I
now live at the Mercedes service
department. Have had bad alternator,
two separate tail light failures,
leather flakes off door handles and
center console, repairs on the roof and
numerous other minor problems. All of
these have been repaired under
warranty - so just the inconvenience.
Overall, I am very disappointed with
the quality of this car. I expected
more from Mercedes and will not be a
repeat customer.
