We didn't deal with the Lynchburg office in person, but when I spoke with the lady in finance( I am sorry I don't remember her name) she let me know that they can ship the vehicle to our closest location. That to me is customer service! Our application was simple and we got pre qualified. Next car will be a CarMax car !!

Size is perfect for us. The trunk is ample and the driving and passenger seats are extremely comfortable. The technology is fantastic. The car is very peppy.
The staff here are best in their field in car sales and part knowledge. Best selection for buying a repairable car, truck , suv .
Beware of Balance Shaft Issue (class action)
by SOTS from The Plains, VA

Great car in terms of style, handling, performance and comfort. Beware, however, that there was a class action lawsuit related to a manufacturing defect. Some MB 6-cylinder engines will develop issues with the balance shaft/timing gear. And it's a horrendously expensive repair (think: � $5K). There was a class-action lawsuit, but the submission date for claims is passed. If you can find one that has had the repair, it's a great car. Do your research?
From the time I agreed to buy the vehicle to the time the vehicle was ready, was two months. But if you can handle that, I have nothing buy good things to say. I got a great vehicle, at 30% less than the blue book value, repairs included.
I'm thrilled with my vehicle, and I'm happy to wait a couple months in order to save several thousand dollars! If you don't need the vehicle immediately, I wouldn't go anywhere else.

this car has met all of my needs and it is very stylish but not as expensive as most cars , great on gas and travel
I have purchased five different vehicles for my family over the years, most of which being repairable vehicles, but my daughter's was a running & driving trade in. With every vehicle I've purchased from George, it's been a smooth process of finding exactly what we were looking for, including parts and labor, within a reasonable time frame and our budget. I continuously refer friends and family to East Coast Auto Source for their parts and vehicle purchases.
Should have bought the 2004+

I bought this car used from a non-Mercedes dealer. The car is impressive only because it can drive very smoothly and give good performance even with broken springs, shocks, warn out & wrong spark plugs and a very loose tire-rod. The only thing I can fault Mercedes for is the body rusting issue. Mercedes got cheap on this year and previous W203 cars but they did improve with the update model in 2004+. In my car I ca see future electric and rust problems and because of this I will not even upgrade the radio in my W203...it's just not worth it. The interior is amazing and almost everything still work in the car....surprisingly the sunroof DOES NOT LEAK.
Oh! One more thing, this model has an HVAC lever issue and if it happens to you (like it happened to me) it's a 10 hour labor job. The part that breaks is a control arm so deep in the car major item s must be removed to access this $50 part. Your steering wheel, the entire dashboard and par of the safety wall. bar has to be removed. It's not worth me fixing mine because the car has some age...I guess Mercedes has two faults in this car.
Thanks George. We are very happy with our new truck. Hope to buy from East Coast Auto Source again!
Great car except reliability

It has great performance exactly car for driving in city. Everything is awesome except durability it has M272 engine which gives many problems. Also 7G tronic transmissions are not durable as 5G tronic.
Although they're in the middle of nowhere, I can say this is quickly becoming my top reccomendation for friends looking for something new to drive, whether it's an everyday vehicle or something fun like a boat or motorcycle. I started with an old Cadillac Deville I wanted to rebuild for my son, and because they were so helpful the first time around, I've made trips back to get vehicles for my daughter, wife, and myself since. The folks at East Coast are a friendly, helpful bunch who will make sure you're a satisfied customer from the time you arrive to the moment you leave. I would reccomend them to anyone!
Does not last

Cute car but lots of maintenance. Mercedes doesn't make cars like they use to. I have driven Mercedes Benz for 30 years. Will not buy another. They will nickel and dime you to death.
This vehicle is so smooth,acts like brand new, very comfortable, excellent in all weather conditions. I just replaced the battery which is the original MB battery. These cars are solid, Love it, built to last!!
Paid $NZ2600 for a nice well kept 2 door Coupe as some Mercs are cheap in NZ. Motor is perfect. Inside & outside body great. No rust, solid doors, bonnet & boot. A safe tidy car & extremely fast. Brake discs replaced & 2 lower suspension rods replaced before I bought. No issues apart from glovebox dropped & cig lighter not working. Mine has a W202 motor [bigger oil filter $16 than the W302] & I use 5w 40 synthetic oil [ Mercedes NZ said they use] with 1/2 bottle Lucas oil stabilizer to keep the top end lubricated. A must with these. I read where electrics can give problems after 9 years old & cost but for what I paid for it I couldn't care less as a nice riding car & only use now & again. Wouldn't recommend for a big person as hard to get in & not much room in the back seats?? Easy to calibrate back to zero on service changing but check youtube. Am happy as a cheap car & its a Merc!!!!
This car is a good running car. In fair condition. Black exterior and all black leather interior. This car has taken me where I have needed to go. I started with 101, 000 miles on it and it is now at 142,810 miles. Since I have had it this car has been running like a champ with some changes done to it. Other than that it is a good car for a reasonable price tag.
This is A great car that had many features and will be my daily driver. Come take A look at the cars on the lot you will love then one and only motors.
