Hi there, im Jason


Im new to the site and have purchased a 2005 slk350 (cat d insurance loss)


Found out about the site after taking on more than I can handle as sod works...I thought it would have been a well looked after motor; as the cost new was around 38K (have a funny feeling the last owner hit the tree on purpose after getting a quote from Mercedes for a new instrument cluster..


Did think I had a bargain till the roof refused to work...windows went down then nothing...not even whisper from motors...:crying:


Wish I could tell you the miles it had!! but the instrument panel is dead as a dodo!!! (I will be sending it off for repair soon so fingers crossed ).


I think we should all contact "watch dog" about the issue of the amount of clusters failing in slk's (AS YOU WILL BE NEXT)!!! might force Mercedes to hold the hands up and replace them at either cost price or free....>:D

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 the Sacramento Valley SLK Enthusiasts!

Why buy a salvaged vehicle especially an SLK? I hope they gave it away or you ran a car fax & vin# check up on it before purchasing it?
