Advice for buyers
What should I look for in a used Mercedes SLC sports?
Visibility to the rear of the admittedly short car can be compromised by the roof, so check the extremities for any scuffs and dents picked up in car parks. Look at the alloy wheels for any kerb damage, too, and also check the electrical operation of the roof.
Reported problems are few, although there have been issues with electrical gremlins, mostly relating to the sat-nav and the minor controls. There have been no official recalls for the SLC at the time of writing.
