Hi everyone,

I'm still considering an SLK. Is rust on the rear subframe a common problem area? Where do they normally go and are some model years worse than others?

Assuming that you cannot find such a helpful dealer as Brava 91, is it an expensive job to replace and / or a potential car killer?

The subframe on my 2008 is like new…. But as Avel Du has suggested above, check before you buy.

EDIT: Reading through this thread I’m appalled about this MB post code lottery. Got to say, this really puts me off the brand. Let’s not forget how much our cars cost when new, every owner paid a premium to own a well made, reliable car and not have such an important component made out of tin foil.

Grrrrrr… 👍
