2006 Mercedes-Benz SLK280 Reviews

Had a 200 slk before this. Was a much nicer car. I have had this car since new and have had numerous problems with it from solenoids to stalling for no reason. Not impressed. This is my last MB. It only has 65k on the clock and I have babied it. No reason for the issues.
I bought this car a couple of weeks ago with 25,000 miles. It has the AMG package with other additional options and it is a beauty. I am thrilled to have it.
