Hey guys, i've been reading up here for a few days now. I've been wanting an SLK for a bit and i feel like i've found a decent one.
I don't want to start a trend about care buying in the General Discussion forum (i know there is a forum specifically for selling cars)
But i was hoping to start a thread here for the discussion for ME BUYING a car instead. I have a few that i'm looking at.
Here are my requirements:
Black exterior, Automatic Transmission, decent miles (as i feel i will keep it for a while), My biggest concern is quality, I really want to make sure there isn't any mechanical problems that could cost me down the road. (obv willing to pay a little more for the security)
I also plan to stealth it out (black out everything look), so if anyone can help with any considerations that i should have before buying the car, let me know.
I am located in Texas, but if i find the right car i am not afraid to go the distance to pick it up (I've got a lot of time before school starts)
2005 SLK350 ~10k miles
(2 owners )
as mentioned, my most pressing concern is the quality (mainly mechanical aspects) of the car. I have been doing my research here and i've found this thread
2005 SLK problems
how do i make sure if i buy a 2005 car, it's not one of the mentioned oil-problem engines?
Therefore, i feel like i prefer this one even though it's a year older and more miles.
2006 SLK350 ~17k miles
(no remote entry, problem with smarttop's remote operations?)
btw, could someone get me a carfax or vin lookup on this 2006 SLK350 that i'm looking at? (WDBWK56F36F124104)
