2004 Mercedes-Benz SLK-Class SLK230 Kompressor 2dr Roadster (2.3L 4cyl S/C 6M)


Most unreliable Benz car we ever owned (of 5). Constant electrical problems. Back to dealer over a dozen times-hard rains or car wash, meant alarm would go off, windows leaked, top and windows wouldn't open or close...constant heartache over this good looking poorly made car. We traded it in the day before the warranty expired. No follow-up by Benz ever.

Best Features

Good heater.

Worst Features

Benz needs to follow-up on these lemons. In the three years we had the SL we never had the dealer, factory follow-up on ongoing problems. As if we were orphans and on our own-no support what-so-ever-
