I have a Merc Benz SLK 230,petrol engine car

Customer Question

Hi. I have a Merc Benz SLK 230,petrol engine car 1999 110,000 miles. Of late,last two weeks,the car has stalled when at a junction (X2 ) and cut out on a busy A road (X1 ) Occasionally it will not start,but within 5 minutes all is good again. It has a new batterty,3 weeks ago and is serviced every 12 months. There is rarely an issue in MOT testing. The car is lovingly cared for and seldom neglected. The car runs smoothly, and accelerates efficiently,so I am discounting fuel issues. Any thoughts please. ? Regards ***** ***** XXXXXXXX

No,I have not had a response from your Mercedes Experts. 6 days is a long time to seek out expert knowledge for a relatively straightforward question. In the mean time my car remains on my driveway waiting for guidance ,since I do not wish for the car to let me down on a very busy UK Motorway.

Whilst you appear a very attractive young lady ,I believe that you may well be working for a scam company which taken £ 20 out of my bank account for one reply from you. Kind regards David
