Default 2006 crystal red roadster

About 4 weeks ago, I purchased one with76,000 miles on it. The dealer added new rear brakes and rotors, valve header gaskets, rear tie rod ends and state inspection. Everything works properly except for the spoiler switch which is no working all the time. Top is in very good condition and it look like the front bumper was repainted at some time .Clean car fax. Due to its age, what replacement parts should I be trying to secure before they are no longer available.

Thank you, can't wait till spring

Body parts are already hard to find. But engine/chassis parts are not a problem, for the most part, you search for "2003 Mercedes SLK320" and, most of the time, the part can be ordered if not already in stock locally.

Just verify the air compressor is working, get a tire plug kit, a spare crank sensor and change the belt and battery every four years. (Not to mention transmission service, coolant flush, etc from time to time.)

Oh oh, about going to a Chrysler STEALERSHIP, you will find a lot of $ missing from your wallet, and also find it would be much better to either do it yourself or find an indi repair shop to address your non self help items. Just saying (along with a multitude of other members).

looks like you were right about stealership. $320.00 for fluid gasket filter and labor? Did I get screwed? (Transmission) Spoiler was working properly, my error

Hey Bontrager, I would look at that charge as an investment in keeping up the Crossfire because they (the dealerships so I am told) keep on staff one "Crossfire trained" mechanic. Some of these "trained xperts" have never encountered such things as a lower control arm replacement or a rear wheel bearing replacement which as stated above can be performed by most any good competent mechanic, however when it comes to our automatik transmissions, since we have no dipstick, I feel that they are the most qualified to perform the service that you just got done. I have three Crossfires, all automatic, and have had the "stealership" do that same service to two of them. The third only has 43,000, so it doesn't need it. ... Your transmission service paperwork trail from the dealership will look better to a prospective buyer than one from AAmco, I would think....good luck withyour crossie..Peace
