We have a 2001 SLK320 we've owned since 2002. Most of this time was spent up north where the car was garaged over the winter so it has only 60K on the odo. Now that we are in Texas, the car is driven 2 or 3 times/week year round. Found a great little private garage that only works on German vehicles. Their labor rate is about $45/hour less than the MB dealers here. Considering the SLK is 14 years old, we've had few maintenance issues. Replaced the serpentine belt idler pulley twice and the upper coolant hose assembly. Just installed the 3rd replacement battery.

My wife loves to drive the car with the top down and the music at full volume. Scares me to ride with her. At 6 ft 4 in, I just fit into this car. When I need stimulation, I take my Victory Cross Roads for a ride out in the country.

I retired from General Motors 4 years ago after 30 years as a fuel and emissions system engineer at the GM Proving Grounds.

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.
Post your vin in the Vehicle Datacard Request section to get a free datacard (options on your car). You must update your profile with vehicle info and your location and post an introduction first.

Welcome from the Sacramento Valley SLK Enthusiasts!

Glad to finally get a GM endorsement for our SLK, not sure if I could say the same for GM. Just kidding!
