SLK 230 - 220K, sluggish acceleration, should I keep her?
I recently picked up a 1998 SKK230. I actually love this car, but am interested in your expert opinions. The car has 220,000 miles and still looks great. However, it needs a little care:
- she doesn't accelerate well, which I believe is due to injector and coil pack issues.
- The spark plugs need replaced (not a big deal i know)
- At start up it idles pretty rough and seems like it will shut off
- The belts need replacing
I'm interested to know if you guys think the car is worth repairing or if it's at the end of it's useful life???
Thanks in advance for your input!
