About Mercedes-Benz SL320

Being a model of the Mercedes-Benz SL-Class, which is one of the most recognizable automotive icons of the last half-century and successor to the Mercedes-Benz SSK and Mercedes-Benz 540K, Mercedes-Benz SL320 was built by the Daimler-Benz between 1994 and 1997 as a sports car for the North American market. Originally introduced as a model of the fourth-generation SL-Class, SL320 was also known as the replacement for the 300SL in the United States in 1995. After being available for only four model years, the production of SL320 was ended and it was discontinued for the 1998 model year.
Mercedes-Benz SL320 (R129) made its debut for the 1994 model year when the SL-Class was in its fourth generation. It was offered in only one body style, 2-door roadster and came in only one trim level. But SL320 was also available for a limited edition called Mille Miglia Edition and a Sport model including AMG staggered tire setup. Equipped with a Bose stereo, ASR traction control, a rain sensor, ESP, side airbags, SLK320 featured tweaked styling, alloys exterior, gee-whiz roll bar that popped up in accidents, front suspension independent damper strut with anti-drive geometry and stabilizer bar, separate shock absorbers and coil springs, negative-offset steering, steering recirculation ball with speed-sensitive power assist and hydraulic damper, Antilock Braking System (ABS) and many others. During its whole lifetime, SL320 had been powered by a 3.2 L V8 rated at 228 horsepower and 232 lb-ft of torque and power was sent to the rear wheels through a 5-speed automatic transmission.

Mercedes-Benz SL320 Common Problems & Maintenance Tips

Being a beautiful and high-performance roadster, Mercedes-Benz SL320 has been a perfect car among many car enthusiasts. However, on account of the fact that the youngest SL320 now is at least twenty-year-old, you have to learn about these common problems on it just in case:
First, just as expected, engine failure is also a common and serious problem on Mercedes-Benz SL320. This problem will truly be ignored since its appearance indicates the vehicle is on the verge of breaking down. However, most drivers have no idea about how to diagnose and solve it in time, that is why these typical symptoms provided by professional SLK320 drivers will be helpful for you. Starting from the noises from the engine including whining, squealing or rattling, you will soon realize the vehicle running roughly, misfiring, stalling and even suffering from starting issues such as hard starting or inability to start. Finally, the vehicle will also lose power when acceleration and have poor fuel economy. Once the Check Engine Light comes on, you must make sure if the SLK320 belt tensioners, spark plug, engine control module, air filter, oil filter, fuel pump and valve cover gasket are working properly or not.
Second, another common problem on Mercedes-Benz SL320 is the transmission failure, which is not known to most drivers. Some SL320 owners may have some knowledge about how the vehicle works, they tend to estimate this problem, which could cause drivability problem and make the vehicle impotent. When the transmission fluids start to leak out, when there are clunking or grinding noises coming from underneath the vehicle, when the indicator does not match the gear, when the transmission slips or surges, when the vehicle starts in another gear or refuses to go into any gear, when you feel hard to shift gears, then the SL320 transmission assembly, shift cable, automatic transmission filter, automatic transmission shifter, transfer case seal and clutch fork must be out of order.
Moreover, performing routine maintenance on vulnerable auto parts of your Mercedes-Benz SL320 is also an indispensable job for you if you desire a perfect ride on it. Some parts such as SL320 seat belt, windshield wiper, wiper blade, antenna, cabin air filter, fog light and headlight although play important roles in creating a safe and comfortable driving environment, they are also exposed to harsh working conditions all the time, maintaining them routinely is the only effective way to keep their prime condition.
