I bought my SLK 230 in 2001 new. After the extended warranty expired (7 years) I performed just routine maintenance based upon mileage. No doubt there are things that need service that would be age related vs mileage since I only have about 65K miles. Any recommendations would be appreciated.

I bought my 2001 SLK new and have not driven it a great deal, only 65,000 to-date. In the first 7 years (extended warranty) I had regular Dealer service performed. Now I just have routine maintenance performed. If I just do maintenance based on mileage I have no measure for other service that the car needs. After 15 years no doubt there are things I need to do, any advice would be welcome.

consult your maintenance manual for what is due by either mileage or age and do them :D

Hi Phil,

Welcome from Wirral, England.

Have a good read of the R170 threads.
Some things like changing the Kompressor fluid, although not needed according to MB,
have proved interesting.

Anything you get curious about try search first.

If it's not there just start a new thread.

We've had lots of R171's.
Need R170s to spice it up.
