Reliable and fun to drive vehicle

by Ms. King from Henrico, VA on Sat Feb 03 2018

This is a great car for the age, mileage, price and condition. I received all the service records back to the original date of purchase from the original showroom sale. Also, received a clean CarFax report with the purchase of the my vehicle. I love my Mercedes Benz!

C280 Mercedes Benz

by Johnson from Santa Monica, Ca on Tue Sep 11 2012

I give thanks to my Lord Jesus for my C280, we were praying for a reliable car and I believe the Lord lead me to this one, when I bought this car it had 177,000 miles on it, but this was mostly highway miles and it was garage kept so it look good inside and out, I had to do a few things to it like front brakes, tires, oil change & etc... it cost us a little under $600.00 but its been almost two full years and the car has been a true reliable blessing, Lord willing we will have this car for many more years.

Best car I owned for 11 years

by Ambelique from BROOKLYN on Fri Sep 14 2018

It is an excellent car and worth the up keep. It is even better in the winter time with all the features. I would buy again.

Our Take on the 1997 Mercedes-Benz C-Class

Mercedes-Benz's C36 is a carnival ride for adults.

Stomp the gas pedal and it pins you back in the seat like a roller coaster heading downhill. Crank the fat leather steering wheel into a corner and it's hard to hold your head upright. It is so rewarding to drive that even the shortest trip is enjoyable.

In general, the C36 looks pretty much like a regular C-Class sedan, but closer inspection reveals a meaner stance, huge tires and discreet lower-body spoilers for improved high-speed stability.

Modified for Mercedes by AMG, a German aftermarket company known for stuffing monster motors into Mercedes-Benz sedans, the C36 is a limited-edition, high-performance sedan about the size... Read More
