Used SLK R171 cons

Hi Everyone,

Some members in here, just like me purchased their SLKs in used or in mint condition. In my case I got mine with an 80K miles in it already. As a newbie owner (with no experience in car troubleshooting), what are the things we need to look after to when it comes to general wear and tear of mechanical parts to avoid costly repairs in the future?

I think there are pros as well as cons when it comes to owning an SLK and it would be appreciated if DIY enthusiasts, experts and experienced owners can point out general tips on the proper maintenance and preventive care so we can take note on what to watch out, repair and replace in the future.
