I have to say I got a real deal on Facebook for this gem of a car. 72,000 miles and nearly 20 years old, it has been sitting in a garage in Sherman Oaks, California in dry mild climate weather -- which means the seals are like new, the gaskets are fine, and the lady that owned it kept all the service records for all 20 years.

One of those real finds.

So I am reading some of the reviews on here, and I am seeing a few different camps and I think to some extent they reflect climate/environmental conditions and how heavily they were driven.

I looked at about 12 cars before selecting the one I bought and what influenced me the most was:

1 - Price
2 - Mileage
3 - Secondary/Weekend Car
4 - Single Owner entire life of vehicle
5 - Always garaged
6- proof of maintenance via records
7 - no visible drips or leaks on inspection
8 - no accident reports
9 - always garaged in dry cool locations in Southern California
10 - owner willing to let me pull a Carfax on the car

I hope this helps you!
Yes, I would recommend this car.

I am the third owner of a fully loaded Sport Pkg SLK230 with 115,000
miles on the odometer. Since purchasing, I have had to replace the
front end ball joints and connecting rods which also meant replacing
the front tires which had worn prematurely on the edges. I purchased the interior paint from a place in Australia and that solved the ugly
interior look. I have been very happy with the car overall; only
regret is that I live in a northern state so I have to hibernate my car in the winter.

I love my car. I had a Mazda RX7 before this and the SLK is much more substantial and feels more sturdy. Plus it has a ton more airbags than my Mazda did.

As long as you are aware that the SLK isn't going to have all the luxury bells and whistles that another car in the same price bracket does, you won't be disappointed. I love the ease in lowering the top on warm days and the power off the line. It's a fun car and so far, knock on wood, it hasn't cost me too much in repairs.
