SLK Always being Repaired - Stay Away
By M Davis on


2005 Mercedes-Benz SLK-Class SLK350 2dr Roadster (3.5L 6cyl 6M)


This car is always in the shop, the oil light came on in the first 1000 miles and was in the shop 4 times before the car had 5000 miles on it, Dealer actually suggested I had to put oil in the car. SRS system went out and electronics are flakey as well as the convertable top. Mercedes quality has gone way down hill, as well as their customer service. They tell you when you buy, that you will get a like kind loaner when your in for warranty repair. But you get whatever rental car the the in house rental agency (currently Enterprise) has for you. So after paying for a Mercedes, I find myself in a Ford Taurus quite a lot. Plastic pieces seem to break on the body very easily. Dont buy.

Worst Features

Make the car reliable and take care of customers, This is starting to feel like GM where all they care about is the bottom line.
