Looking for another slk

478 Views 2 Replies 3 Participants Last post by  phunn
My 1998 SLK230 was rudely treated by some creature who blew a stop
sign. As a result I am in the market for another SLK. (Insurance Company
totaled it ... sob).

I am looking at the newer ones, 2011 to 2014. Are there any years I
should avoid ?

Thanks for any advice,

Richard S.
