After 17 years we sold this car. It is the ONLY CAR never left us. The most reliable car we ever had. We liked it so much that we bought another Brand New one Mercedes C-300. We sold the car well over the retail value, because of the condition we had it. The new owner is very happy with the Mercedes C-230. EXCELLENT CAR = EXCELLENT VALUE

Excellent Car. One owner, very low mileage. Average mileage for any car is 12,000 miles/year. This car has 6,900 Miles/year. The car has New Tires & New Brakes, RWD, ABS Brakes, it is a Mercedes C-230, Kompressor, 4 Cylinders, 29 miles per Gallon, very ECONOMICAL. The car looks like NEW. It has just been DETAILED. Always kept in a garage. Exterior perfect, Metallic Beige Color, REAL LEATHER SEATS. Very Clean inside and out. Mercedes Benz cars last for 300,000 miles without a problem. This car has been maintained always at the Mercedes Dealership. You only have to change the oil every 5,000 miles. The owner has records of everything.

Comfort and style are outstanding. 2nd Mercedes I've owned and The most reliable brand I've ever driven. If you keep up with oil changes and preventive maintenance items, Mercedes will easily go 300,000 miles. The down side is if you do need a repair, parts and labor will cost more. But because they made a lot of these cars, used parts are also readily available. I got this car to replace an older Mercedes E420 - this one has better fuel economy than the previous 8 cyl Benz and is slightly lower to the ground but otherwise comparable in comfort and style.

I owned the C-230 Kompressor for a few years that I bought used from the MB dealership. As it was the last of the old body style, they wanted it out of their show room and I got a pretty good deal on it. The driving is incredibly smooth & fluid. I tweaked it a bit with a K&N Air Filter, and hotter sparkplugs but otherwise left it stock. Problems: first was a sputtering noise coming from the passenger side airbag that no one could explain. The dealership said it was the AC unit and put it an entire new one but the noise continued. I guess it was the airbag warming up. At about 90k miles, the odometer digits, etc., became too smeared to read, and the single wiper would no longer move. The dash digits problem was a pricey replacement of the dash cluster that I opted to skip and the wiper turned out to be a single bolt coming loose disconnecting the wiper motor from the movement arms (referred to as the transmission). The final problem came from my high level of deep u-turns. I noticed a sort of metalic stretching noise when executing a U turn. Eventually, a front (passenger) strut connection snapped probably from all the hard u-turns. Overall, it was an excellent car. Fairly easy to work on if you're reasonably handy with decent amount of tools.

This car is awsome due to lasting a lot meaning realiabilty. My C class is a 2000 and it currently has 302,000 miles. Just did normal maintainace and had a brake light switch to change. This car still runs great. I had it checked out for rust and not even a spot of rust in 302k miles. Around a half of its miles are highway miles but still. Would reccomend the older model not new.

My friend and I got to experience this car in High School. My friends Grandmother actually owned the car but gave us the keys when ever we wanted them. We loved this car not only because the people that looked at us in ah but because this car handle everything we through at it. This care is truly a dream car of mine as of write now. I am actually a senior in college in the market for a used car that will take me through grad. school. I would love to find one in okay to excellent condition. Let me explain my take on this car. Feature in this car are great and there are plenty of buttons to push. One complaint that I have with all Mercedes is the layout of the button, yes since it higher level car but controls are small and can be confusing to read, it takes getting used to. The interior is roomy and the seats are firm and supportive. Back seat room can is smaller than other sedans in its class but you can fit four comfortably. Trunk space is little tight but two big suit cases can fit rather easily. The exterior is lets say very Benz, which is a good thing in my book. My friends was black on black with tinted windows, very sporty. This Benz C-Class was the C280 with 194 2.8 V6, trust me plenty of power maybe a little to much for us at the time considering that we were both 17. 0-60 was I would rate as a heart beat. Handling is amazing, I can remember going through a tight curb at about 80mph, the car hugged the road and seemed that the car was on rails. I just have to get this car. The only thing I would say is questionable is reliability, and pricey repair bills. The high-tech keys are cool but failed twice, meaning the car needed to be towed both times $350 to be replaced. Small part on transmission was not cheap $800. Break light switch went out which was also pricey. Even though the car has high miles the computer shouldn't freak out. The car stop counting miles at 220,000 miles. One thing that our parents like about this car is safety. Overall nice car, but if I find one I will be getting a service plan with it.

Ok, look. The car looked great. Then the rust started. Then a few very minor equipment failures that cost about a grand to fix, EACH. The problem with this car is that it is just too expensive to operate once it begins to need repairs. Averaged about 3 grand per year for each of the 5 years owned. Better to go Volvo. MB also stands for major bucks repairs.
