About Mercedes-Benz SLK55 AMG

Belonging to the Mercedes-Benz SLK-Class lineup, 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 SLK55 AMG was built by the Daimler AG from 2005 to 2016 as a compact sports car. Originally introduced as a model of the second-generation SLK-Class, SLK55 AMG was the first Mercedes tuned by AMG's Performance Studio to create the new "Black Series". But after being manufactured for two generations over eleven model years, the SLK55 AMG was discontinued as the whole SLK-Class was renamed to SLC-Class for the 2017 model year.
The first-generation Mercedes-Benz SLK55 AMG (R171) was produced from 2004 to 2007 and made its debut for the 2005 model year when the SLK-Class was in its second-generation. It was offered in only one body style, 4-door 2-seater roadster with a power-retractable hardtop and came in only one trim level. During this generation, SLK55 AMG was powered by 5.4 L V8 rated at 355 hp and 376 pound-feet of torque and this engine sent power through a 7-speed automatic transmission to the rear wheels. The more recent SLK55 AMG (R172) was launched at the 2011 Geneva Motor Show as a 2012 model. It got a new AMG Carbon Styling package and the AMG Handling package. Someone also called it as Mercedes-AMG SLK55. Equipped with a special AMG transmission, a sport suspension and exhaust, 18-inch AMG wheels, a torque-vectoring brake system, bi-xenon headlights, a sport steering wheel, upgraded leather upholstery and an analog clock, SLK55 AMG then got power from a 5.5 L V8 good for 415 hp and 398 pound-feet of torque and power was sent through an AMG-tuned 7-speed automatic transmission to the rear wheels.

Mercedes-Benz SLK55 AMG Common Problems & Maintenance Tips

Offering a surprising amount of performance capability, being sporty and refined, Mercedes-Benz SLK55 AMG is really a smart choice for a luxury roadster. But since its production has ended, you had better learn about these common problems on your SLK55 AMG to ensure its long lifespan:
First, rough shifting of the automatic transmission is the most common and serious problem that Mercedes-Benz SLK55 AMG drivers have ever met during driving. We all know that the function of a transmission system is to transfer the power from the engine to moving forces so that the vehicle could move forward. In other words, once it is broken, your vehicle will have drivability issues. Therefore, these typical symptoms of the transmission failure provided by experienced SLK55 AMG drivers need your full attention. It often shows as leaking transmission fluids, the indicator not matching the gear, the vehicle starting in another gear or refusing to go into any gear at all, transmission slipping and surging, as well as difficulty in shifting gears. All these signs are indicating you the SLK55 AMG transmission assembly, shift cable, automatic transmission filter, automatic transmission shifter, transfer case seal and clutch fork need a thorough inspection.
Second, another serious and common problem on Mercedes-Benz SLK55 AMG is the braking failure. This is a matter of life and death and you must get it diagnosed and solved before it is too late. According to professional SLK55 AMG repairmen, it often starts with noisy brakes, pulsating brake pedals and leaking braking fluids. If you do not notice these simple signs, the problem will evolve in brakes responding poorly, rear brakes getting locked up on the wet surface and the parking brake failing to hold the car properly. The illuminated Brake Warning Light and Parking Brake Light are also signs for you to inspect the working condition of the SLK55 AMG brake pad set, brake disc, brake drum, brake rotors, brake line, brake proportioning valve and parking brake cable.
Furthermore, never ignore the role of routine maintenance on vulnerable auto parts of your Mercedes-Benz SLK55 AMG. These parts including SLK55 AMG seat belt, windshield wiper, wiper blade, antenna, cabin air filter, fog light and headlight should be maintained routinely to ensure a safe and comfortable driving environment consistently.
