Plenty of folks posting about their new R171 SLKs on the other forum.

Some are happy, but some ran right into difficulties.

Reminds me of the advice that folks who buy the first model year of a car are otherwise known as "test pilots!"

I don't know about you, but if I buy an R171 it will be later.

...and S2000s [;)] I'm sure its true with any car though.

It was pretty much the same here, back in 1998 or so....

Nothing major for quite a while, and Benz took care of 'most everything. They even replaced two SLK's if I remember right, replaced, not repaired. [:I]
It was far worse over at the Z3 and Boxster boards, [:(] they were having all kinds of trouble. Remember when Porsche was blowing engines left and right? [B)]

And 2002 Audi A4. We already had the transmission replaced!

I do not live that far from the Benz dealer, and I have only seen one on the streets so far. I'm not sure how well they are selling.
