SLK 280 or CLK 350

I am torn between purchasing a 2007 SLK280 with 10K miles for $29K or a 2007 CLK350 convertible with 54K miles for $22K. I love the look of the SLK, the CLK is obviously more functional. Both are single owner, with maintenance records. Neither is CPO.

I have read the forums for insight but would appreciate any thoughts on which would be a better deal from a mechanical reliability. Any gotchas I need to know about for either model?

New info: I got a hold of the carfax for the CLK350. Owner had the car checked for an oi leak in November and then 7 days later the car was sold. Sounds a little suspicious. The car was serviced at Mercedes Benz of Danbury. If I called them with the VIN number would they provide additional information?


Thanks in advance
