Proud owner of my second SLK230, First was a Red 2001, presently I have a Silver 2004 with 117K+ miles. With the Michigan winters, I garage my dream car for the snow season. Planning a trip to the east coast next month and need to get a few minor repairs completed for a safe journey. Any advice on typical TGW things gone wrong at this mileage milestone is appreciated.

Welcome to SLKWorld.com: The #1 Mercedes-Benz SLK Forum from Valrico, Florida!



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.

Congratulations! And welcome to the forum. There is lots of good info here to help maintain your new ride. I am on my second SLK 230 R170 too :smile: I sold the first one and missed it so much, I went out a few years later and bought the same year SLK (pre facelift). It's pretty much driven only twice a month on the weekends.

Being a used car, I would go ahead and change the plugs, trans fluid, radiator flush, air filters (cabin & engine), fuel filter, etc. Being an unknown when these were done, it will provide confidence.

Enjoy your new car!
