I posted a message in the wrong area of this website under new threads, I meant for it to be in the C230 Compressor coupe area. My car is having its second transmission in 3 months installed today, along with a torque converter. Its had many small electronic repairs performed in the last 3 months also. My car is just under 40 000kms. I love this machine! Period!, but I'm beginning to wonder if others are having problems like this. I am beginning to reconsider my desire to own new SLK. Through all of this my dealer has been absolutely great!
