I just joined after purchasing a 2011 SLK300 with 27,000 miles. Am wondering if an additional 2 year warranty is worth purchasing.

Some tips to make your visit here more enjoyable:
If you haven’t, please use the 'search' feature at the top right of the page for your questions as they have probably been asked before. Remember, ‘Search’ is your friend.
If you wish to become PM (Private Message) capable, you need 15 posts. To get those 15 posts quickly, just go to the ‘New members introduce yourself here’ section and welcome enough new members to obtain your needed posts to PM.
Want to post a picture? Start a new thread or make a post, click ‘edit’, click on the ‘paper clip’ or ‘advanced’ and/or ‘manage attachments’ then ‘choose file’ then ‘upload’ and ‘submit’! If Iphone pics, you need to rename any additional pics as Iphone names its pics all the same, image.jpg.
Want to ‘like’ or thank’ someone’s comments? Use the ‘like’ button to the right or the ‘Thanks’ button, bottom right of any post you like. This saves you having to comment.
New members should be aware that the 'New Posts' link next to the 'Search' link top right of the info bar is a great way to see all of the posts you have missed since you were on the forum last. Remember to click 'mark forums read' under ‘quick links’ when you leave.

Hi rmsarsh8741, a warm welcome from Southern Arizona. Congratulations on your new ride. There have been many discussion on extended warranties. All a matter of personal preference in purchasing the "extra insurance". Enjoy the people, the forum, and top down cruisin'.

I personally am a warrantee person. Knowing that the next few years and 75,000 miles I have no driving worries makes buying a used car a no-brainer.

Hi and welcome from the UK Midlands!

I'm in favour of extended warranties, although as my SLK is 9 years old, I'll be looking at one from a 3rd party once the warranty from the MB specialist I bought the car from expires. You need to weigh up the potential risks against the amount the extended warranty costs (also bearing in mind what is and isn't covered by the warranty being offered... i.e. remember that they seldom cover everything without costing an absolute fortune).

Welcome to the forum.
If you plan to drive your SLK more than 10,000 miles a year get the warranty.
