Last year we bought a 2006 SLK 280 with only 38K miles. Had to have some repairs done by MB and it was expensive. Worried about what else might be waiting to need work. Over the winter we looked for a newer version and found a 2014 SLK Florida car with only 8K. Stayed with Mars Red and black leather interior, but had to give up navigation and dual temp controls. Such is life. Beautiful car and smooth ride. Found out it was painted under warranty by MB at an MB dealer and that caused some concern, but it is just like a brand new car. Will only be drive for summer months in NE Ohio, but last year it was beautiful through November so may be we will be lucky every year.
