New to SLK Forum. until recently never had any problems with my 2000 SLK 230. It has been the most reliable, depedable and best car I have owned. Recently on two separate occasions, my car has unexpectedly accelerated when turning right and going up a slight incline. The car continued to accelerate after I took my foot off the pedal. And it continued to race. No lights indicating any problem. Frightening experience. Braking until car in neutral and finally stopped. Are there any known problems with this year/model? Someone mentioned throttle linkage???
