Hi all, just joined the board. Have wanted an SLK for years but haven't pulled the trigger. Saw a 1-owner 2001 230 with 54,000 miles on it. Carfax showed it failed smog and owner got rid of it right after that. Common?

My wife has an '02 C230 coupe and we've had no troubles with it at all.

Thanx!

Welcome to the forum!!!

Haven't heard of anyone else with that problem (whatever it is :) )

Welcome.

Sounds unusual for the mileage and model year.

I thought the parts related to emissions control were under warranty to 10 years, IIRC (separate from manufacturer's warranty). It may be something easy and relatively inexpensive to fix/correct (like stuck valves or need new air filter). Have a competent independent MB shop check and see what the fault(s) may be and negotiate the cost to correct this in the price.

I don't know what they're asking, but there are lots of cars on the market right now, and prices are dropping due to the economy. Have a quick look on eBay before you jump on a car with issues...
