It's been just under a month since getting the SLK and we have enjoyed the first 1000 miles totally. We bought the car with 9800 miles and today hit 10800. It has been a thrilling month car-wise. It has felt like a driving honeymoon with mixed highway, city and some mountain road driving at New Years when we attended a deck party at Wintergreen Ski resort. the car climbed the mountains effortlessly and felt glued to the curves. The car has outperformed my expectations in all areas No complaints, just enjoying the variety available with the transmission settings. With winter weather here, the airs-carf is a delight at 430 in the morning for my drive to work. Looking forward to the next 1000.
