I have a '99 SLK, and the other day, with an outside temperature of 97
degrees Fahrenheit, it was pleasant in the car with the air conditioning
turned up to its "coldest" setting, but I don't think you'd ever say, "Gee,
it's cold in here!"
As to the blower, I have mine turned to the fourth detente, which on my car
puts the dial "handle" in the horizontal position. That's enough blowing for
my taste, but it will blow harder -- and now that I say that, I wonder if
that would make it cooler....
Hey John -
Thanks. You know it's hot when the temperature is higher than your
car's model year.
I have a co-worker with a '99 who'll be back later this year, and I
expect I'll stick a thermometer in the vent and see what it reads, and
also see how strong the blower is. I'll post some of the temps for
Mine has always been cold enough, so I can't say I've had a problem
with that. But the one problem I've had twice with my 98 SLK230 is
leaves getting in the blower fan 'box' area. This has happen each of
the last two falls, although I do park it in a carport, somehow the
leaves get down I guessing along the front windshield area.
