Hello, everyone, I love reading pages on this forum! I own a 1998 SLK230 2.3L. I have had it now about 3 years. It was really not taken care of when I purchased it. I really love this car and to be honest I have not had any major problems as of now, knock on wood! I maintain this car very well and have 95,000 miles. I drive it periodically while swapping it out with my truck 98 Dodge Ram 1500 to keep both running. I have access to the Chilton site that I pay a yearly fee for, which is cheap to get.
