Bought an SLK350 May 2019. Haven't driven much - COVID keeps me from having to go anywhere. It has a lot of options and just trying to figure them out.

Interesting Purchase: MB has website that lists all (almost all) Certified cars in US. After about 4 weeks spotted one that met requirements in Reading, PA but I'm in central Florida. Put deposit on car over the phone on Tuesday with 'Pre-owned' manager - great guy. Flew to PA on Thursday. Picked up at airport by great guy whose jobs was to drive cars around for dealership primarily to pick up customers. Hour drive to dealer. Test drove car. Signed paperwork with finance manager - another great guy. Salesman drove me to my motel and picked me up Friday morning and took me to dealership - another great guy. Car expert - a Young guy (yeah - great guy too) who knew everything about controls and nav system gave me a 30 minute lesson. Drove from Reading, PA to Lorton, Va. got on Auto-Train. Home Saturday morning with the wife's car. Best buying experience I've ever had.

Don't drive it enough to really get to know it. Bought it May 2019 with 12,200 miles. Now July 28, 2020 has 13,965 miles. 1700 miles in 14 months and about 300 of it was getting it home!

Got some questions - I'll post them soon.

Happy driving.
