1999 SLK230 AMG Sport Hardtop Convertible BLACK 86,000 miles $12,395

86,000 miles.

Fabulous Mercedes Benz SLK230 Kompressor Sport Supercharged hard top convertible. This SLK230 has the upgraded SPORT package which includes AMG 5-spoke wheels, sport suspension, performance tires, and sport skirt paneling. Although winter is here, you don't have to worry about the bad weather because the car is a hardtop/coupe as well.


STEREO: 6 speaker Bose speaker system with dual sub woofers. AM/FM radio/cassette with fiber optic connected trunk mounted 6-disc CD changer.

INTERIOR/OPTIONS: Black leather with cream sport striping, wood-like trim dash, power windows, two sets of keys with transmitters and one additional master key, fog lights, fiberglass wind screen, dual zone climate control, spare tire, tire inflator pump, updated front grille, separate SIRIUS satellite radio (subscription not included).

MAINTENANCE: Camshaft position sensor and camshaft solinoid just replaced 08/2008. Just got the tires balanced, new Bosch windshield wipers replaced, and new rear brake light lenses replaced. Oil and filter change, K&N air filter replaced, serpentine belts replaced, coolant flushed on 07/20/2008. Motor mounts replaced 10/25/2008. Lower ball joints replaced 11/2008. Drag link replaced 12/20/2008.

THE BAD: tires need to be replaced within the next year, PSE Pump (power door locks) does not work, so I have been locking it manually, small chip in windshield that does not affect visibility.

Vehicle fully inspected by certified MB mechanic. The only things that need to be eventually replaced (not needed immediately) are the lower control arm bushings. Estimate to replace (labor + parts) is about $500.00.<br>

This vehicle is covered by an extended warranty package by Preferred Warranties, Inc. (Preferred Warranties, Inc.).

The warranty is transferrable to the new owner, and the Buyer will have to pay an additional $50.00 for the transfer fee, above and beyond the final selling price of the vehicle. The deductible for the warranty is $100 for each claim. (I have already used this warranty two separate times and the company was extremely easy to deal with! Hassle free).
