Hello from Texas. I'm considering a 2014 SLK250, iridium silver and Bengal red interior. This will be my first MB. I found this website while researching the vehicle. I'm nervous about the horror stories regarding reliability. Anyone on here willing to share their satisfaction with owning the vehicle? It is greatly appreciated.

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.

Welcome from Wirral, England.

I understand your concerns but remember

Folks come on here to share views and find help.

So although you may see lots of issues raised you need to consider them in proportion to the sales made.

Any 'active' forum will have lots of problems raised because that's the main reason folks join.
If you know the potential problems in advance then you know what to look for.

You may also find this link useful:

When you find your possible new car get the datacard from Jeffs post above.
It tells you the options that the car left the dealer with at first purchase.

Good luck with your search.

I have exactly the same car in the same colors.
Very few problems in 24,000 miles.
I look forward to Sewell's new dealership opening for service. I now service it in Austin,

Seeing as how you understand this Texas heat, how does your vehicle do when not parked in shade? I do not have the magic sky button in this car. I love the Austin area, I bet your car is great fun to drive there!

Welcome from Lakeland, Florida.

When the rain stops you'll love to go topless!

What Texas heat and sun?
Where we are there is light rain and heavy rain. Lately mostly heavy.
We do not have a Magic Sky Top. So far no problem with heat.
