Eight years or so without a single problem is quite impressive! We'd be interested to hear more details, such as mileage, service history, driving conditions etc.I have been a member since 2011. Have a Mars Red 2009 350 SLK that I purchased in 2010. I love it and have never had one issue. Hence I read many posts but have never thought I had anything to add, nor a request for help. But it's a great car!
