SLR review

by Nick from Chicago on July 20, 2006

I bought a SLR in May of 2006 and have only put 2200 miles on it. I have had to have it worked on 4 times for transmission problems and replaced the engine at 1700 miles.

Trims Explained

When talking about cars, “trims” is a way of differentiating between different versions of the same model. Typically, most start with a no-frills, or “base” trim, and as features are added, or a different engine, drivetrain (gas vs. hybrid, for example) or transmission are included, trim names change and prices go up. It’s important to carefully check the trims of the car you’re interested in to make sure that you’re getting the features you want, or that you’re not overpaying for features you don’t want.
