Newbie wanting a SLK230

Hi Everyone, I'm a newbie here and got some questions, I am thinking of buying a 2000 SLK230, is there anything I should look out for? I will take it for a test drive and an inspection by a professional,but is there any issues anyone have encountered? Thanks

(I did a search and honestly there were too many post)

They are great cars and with a ppi, you should be good. If you limit your search to the R170 forum, you will find the posts you need. People considering their first slk often ask the exact question you did on that forum.

Good Luck. Hope the sale works out for you. I have been very happy with my R170. Fun car, easy to work on.

1998-2003 SLKs are known as R170s. You'd be better off posting your questions on that forum where most of the actual owners hang out.
