Mercedes-Benz SLK320 Reviews

Have had the common problems , replaced the crankshaft position sensor, and the engine management relay, both were simple DIY fixes. Had the tail light units replaced under a recall notice. Love the car. Handles and drives great. The Chrysler Crossfire shares 80% of the mechanical components with the SLK320. It is very helpful to buy a factory Crossfire service manual(2-3 vols).
Power on highway a plus comfort a plus interior paint on consul sucks fads dilaminates what a joy I love mine great happiness
