Hi there

My wife has just bought a 14 month old 172 350 to replace her diesel A3 Cabriolet. Build of the SLK seems a massive improvement and we are enjoying the car.

However we did have a problem which is largely resolved by a new front wheel under warranty.

However the car still seems to vibrate (but no the steering wheel) at about 80mph. I wondered if it is an exhaust resonance? Any thoughts?

BTW - I drive an RR Evoque as my daily and have an Audi TT quattro Sport as my plaything.

Cheers Richard

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

First please update your vehicle (year?: 1996-2016, model?: 32, 200, 230, 250, 280, 300,320,350,55) in your profile as it helps the members answer your questions which usually are based on that information if you haven’t.
Follow exactly to update: ‘Usercp’ at the top of page, then ‘edit your details’ on the left side, ‘additional information’ near the bottom, edit your ‘vehicle’. Info in your garage does not update your profile.



mods you should do:

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 Southern England. You and your wife have a nice fleet. The SLK and the TT Sport are two cars that have been on my wish list of cars I'd like to own.

Welcome from the Sacramento Valley SLK Enthusiasts!

If it's under warranty take it back to the dealer and demand it gets fixed properly. I have never replaced only 1 tire before unless I had a flat tire, but even then I would replace both tires as soon as possible to match to avoid shimmieing while driving on unbalanced tires.

Hi and welcome from central Florida.

Please update your location/vehicle (model and year) in your profile as it helps the members answer your questions which usually are based on that information.
