1994 Mercedes-Benz C-Class Sedan C280 4dr Sedan


Review

The car is ok but not better than anything else. Certainly not as comfortable or quick as some GM cars I have owned and way below my son's BMW in every respect. And less features too.


Favorite Features

Solid little car, looks OK. Not many problems, but any are big.

Review

I had no intentions of giving up my sweet 94 C280 with 141,000 miles but a deer did me in last week. This car was well-made, a classic never-get-old design and a great performer for 14 years. Except for the check engine light that has been on for the last 110,000 miles, I had no issues with it. I'm now looking at the new C class with the hopes of finding one that will give me the same excellent support as my '94 did. It never once hesitated to start or give me the power I needed.


Favorite Features

Safety, visibility, classic look.


Suggested Improvements

The check-engine light was a problem that MBUSA couldn't get their hands around.

Review

140,000... when you close the door its closes like a bank vault, solid..The ride superb. 20 miles in the city 30 on the freeway. No leaks or sqeeks. Motor clean. Everything works. Uses no oil. I wanted to try a used one before buying a new one. I will never buy anything but a Mercedes again. The Car is like anything else. You need to take care of it. Mine has asked for little.


Favorite Features

The solid ride, the antilock brakes saved me from rear ending in traffic. The simple controls. The high quality interior that has held up and is still like new today. It a head turner make you feel like a million


Suggested Improvements

No complaints

Review

For a 12 year old car, this an extremely tight and reliable vehicle- doesn't look its age in style either.


Favorite Features

Smooth, quiet ride, yet plenty of power and a good handler.


Suggested Improvements

The car does transfer a bit too much road feel, but the noise doesn't penetrate the cockpit.
