R171 Buyer's Guide

Post by macphisto84 » Wed 23 Mar, 2016 10:46 am

Hi everyone,

I was wondering if there is a comprehensive buyers guide for the wonderful 2nd generation Mercedes SLK.

My friend wishes to purchase one, and I am in the process of researching key issues with the car.

He would be looking at a SLK350 with AirScarf, 7 Speed Automatic, GPS and other options. With full service history of course.

If anyone can either find a guide online or scan one from a magazine it would be greatly appreciated.

Regards,

Syd

Hi Syd,

I have the short version of the R171 buyer's guide: "Get it" :laughing6:

We have exactly the described model, there's no problem with the motor or else. According to my MB workshop, the R171 is one of the best MB's of the time. I would just drive it before, what I don't like is the seats. Just too hard for me.

Hallo Thomas!!!

Vielen Dank für deine Antwort!!!!

My friend is planning to purchase the car in the next 12 months.

I have driven a SLK 300 from 2011 and it was a fabulously fast car.

I personally didn't have any problems with the seat comfort but the drive was only for an hour.

If anyone has a decent guide, please feel free to send me the details!!!
