Mercedes-Benz SLK280 Problems

Check Engine Light Due to Faulty Camshaft Adjuster Solenoid

The camshaft adjuster solenoid (which is related to the variable valve timing system) may fail or timing chain/balance shaft components may wear, resulting in illumination of the Check Engine Light and various drivability issues. Mercedes-Benz has released a service bulletin outlining specific repair instructions depending on fault codes stored.

Rough Shifting of Automatic Transmission

Vehicles equipped with a 7-speed automatic transmission may develop a rough shifting condition, most commonly going up from first to second gear and going down from third to second or second to first gear. Our technicians tell us this is due to an internal component failure. Mercedes has released updated parts; the transmission will need to be removed and disassembled to complete the necessary repairs.

Stalling and/or "Crank no Start" Due to Failed Crankshaft Position Sensor

The engine may develop a stalling and/or no start condition due to a failed crankshaft position sensor.

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.
This is my third Mercedes, second from new...it is by far the best one I have owned. 1st, 300SD, 2nd, C230w and now my SLK. It gathers longing looks everywhere...Caddilac owners drool and BMW drivers trade theirs in for a Mercedes after talking to me...gotta love it....& I do...yes, I do...
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.
