Private Garage for SLK in West GTA, Ontario, Canada

Hello,

I have recently bought a 2003 SLK230 and I would like to change a few parts like the arm controls, bearings, maybe a pulley and the tensioner ... I also need to tune up the roof. It's working very well but it rattles a lot when I drive on uneven surfaces.

Does anybody know a trusted garage in West of GTA? I live in Oakville, ON and anything in Mississauga Oakville or Burlington would be great. I commute daily to Cambridge so I would take that into consideration as well.

Any help is highly appreciated. Thanks a lot,

Konrad

Good call...was at the MB dealership today and unfortunately succumbed to the lure of a spotless 2012 SLK 55 AMG...only 13,000kms, looks straight out of the show room fully loaded to the tits...previous owner apparently had it as his 5th car and didn't use it much.. Picking it up Wed....just got to figure out how to pay for it.....

Anyway on that little side note I will be leaving details with my previous car re this web site and the need for some new Ontario members and get the sales guy to inform anyone buying an SLK to head over to this site..

Roll on Wed.

Congrats Chris!! Fotos, maybe a colour?!?

As for paying for it... Perhaps Ms Wynne has a program? Or you could sell your body to the night, as they say (granted that is likely a long long long payment plan....)

Can't say that I agree with this policy - especially when one is simply trying to assist another member without publicly endorsing one particular supplier.. Seems a very pedantic rule.. W.

which policy? the private message policy?

That is to keep spammers from private messaging our members.
It works great!

and you can get 8 more posts in about 5 minutes by welcoming new members which is always a friendly thing to do like we welcomed you

Mike and Brad at Oakridge have been servicing our Mercedes fleet for years now. I even purchased a 2010 GL from them which they owned and fixed and it runs perfect for my daily company vehicle.
Would never bring our slk to anyone else either.
Highly recommend Oakridge Auto, they also customize with Kleeman.
