About Mercedes-Benz SLK250

Being a model of the Mercedes-Benz SLK-Class, which is the successor to the Mercedes-Benz 190SL and one of the first modern vehicles to popularize the use of a power-retractable convertible top made out of steel panels, Mercedes-Benz SLK250 was built by the Daimler AG from 2012 to 2015 as a compact sports car. Originally introduced as a part of the current third-generation lineup, SLK250 was available for only four model years before being discontinued and replaced by the SLK300.
Mercedes-Benz SLK250 (R172) made its debut at the 2011 Geneva Motor Show and went on sale in the United States in summer 2011 as a 2012 model when the current SLK-Class is in its third generation. It was offered in only one body style, 2-door retractable hardtop and came in only one trim level. But SLK250 was also available for Lighting package, Driver Assistance package, and Dynamic handling package. Equipped with 17-inch wheels, a choice of either a black painted or glass roof panel, automatic wipers, LED running lights, heated power-folding mirrors (driver-side auto-dimming), cruise control, automatic climate control, eight-way power front seats with four-way lumbar adjustment, driver memory functions, a power tilt-and-telescoping steering wheel, leather (premium vinyl) upholstery, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, Bluetooth phone and audio connectivity, Mercedes-Benz's mbrace2 emergency communication system, a 5.8-inch display screen, the COMAND electronics interface and an eight-speaker sound system with a CD player, HD radio and auxiliary and USB audio jacks, Mercedes-Benz SLK250 was powered by a turbocharged 1.8 L I4 rated at 201 hp and 229 pound-feet of torque and power was sent to the rear wheels through standard 6-speed manual transmission and optional 7-speed automatic transmission.

Mercedes-Benz SLK250 Common Problems & Maintenance Tips

As a standout luxury car that offers retractable-hardtop convenience and rewarding performance in a dignified package, Mercedes-Benz SLK250 has been popular among car enthusiasts. However, since it has been discontinued, you had better be prepared for these common problems on SLK250 in advance:
First, according to the reliable car repair statistics site repairpal.com, braking failure ranks first among all other problems on the Mercedes-Benz SLK250. This problem is certainly horrible as it has the ability to drag occupants into trouble anytime without anticipation. To prevent it appearing on your SLK250, you might as well learn about its typical symptoms. If you find the brakes become noisy and poorly responded; if the brake pedal pulsates heavily when being depressed; if there are leaking braking fluids on the ground; if the rear brakes get locked up without a reason, especially on the wet surfaces; if the parking brake could not hold the car properly; and if both the Brake Warning Light and Parking Brake Light come on, you should inspect the working condition of the SLK250 brake pad set, brake disc, brake drum, brake rotors, brake line, brake proportioning valve and parking brake cable.
Second, another horrible problem on Mercedes-Benz SLK250 could be the engine failure. Any people who own a car may know the seriousness of this problem although some of them have not enough knowledge about working principles of the automobiles. Some experienced SLK250 drivers said that when the vehicle reached a certain mileage, the engine will make some strange noises such as whining, squealing or rattling to distract their attention; and gradually, the engine would run roughly, misfire, stall, even suffer from starting problems; finally, the vehicle will suffer from losing power when acceleration and consuming excessive oil. You are advised to keep the SLK250 spark plug, air filter, oil filter, engine control module, engine mount, valve cover gasket and fuel pump in good order all the time to avoid those hazards.
