I am Joe Vee and live in Ocala Florida. I bought a 2004 230 SLK. The top stopped working so I took it to the Mazda dealer where I bought it. (BTW with 42000 miles, special edition for $12,800.00) They took it to the Mercedes dealer in Gainsville and on the way the top came off, so it is being repaired on their warrantee. They said it will cost about $8,000! Sounds like a lot.

I am planning on going to the Oct 11 reunion, so hopefully we'll meet. It's about 45 minutes from me. It's a beautiful place. I work in advertising, creative, design and marketing. I have for over 40 years.

One question when you put the top up or down, does it stop automatically once in place? I know that if I lay off the switch it stops. Strange set up or not?

Thanks for all of the support and info.

JoeVee

Welcome aboard,
$8,000 sounds like they ripped the roof off,
make sure you get an itemized list of what they replaced.
Do you have an owners manual? if not check out the link in my signature & download it.
