I'm planning to go on a road trip across the US and back, within a 3-week period in May 2014.
Given the long distance of the trip, do you personally think it would be a good decision to take my 2007 SLK350 on this road trip? I bought it brand new in late 2006, and it has around 55k miles on it, as of late 2013 (that's 7 years).
I haven't had any major issues with the car that couldn't be fixed, and it has had all its recommended services.
I took my 2006 SLK 350 from Philadelphia to Chicago and back in July and from Philadelphia to Florida and back a few weeks ago. Handled very well and got 28 to 31 MPG on mid-grade fuel. Just pack light. I now have 49949 miles on it.
