1994 Mercedes-Benz C-Class C280 4dr Sedan


The C280 is one of the most underrated sport sedans out there. In straight-line acceleration the 194-hp (199 lb-ft torque) inline-6 easily surpasses the 3-series BMW and Audi A4. At cruising freeway speeds of 100mph+ it feels as stable as 65. The build quality is bank-vault solid; every thing else just feels flimsy after you drive a Benz. I bought mine at 78k and at 136k the only major repairs have been a mass airflow sensor ($500).

Best Features

- Overall reliability. At 135k miles it still pulls strong with no rattles or squeaks. - Styling. The design is aging well and aftermarket 16 or 17-inch wheels aid the overall look. - Acceleration. - Fold down rear seats / huge trunk.

Worst Features

-Climate control sometimes has to be dialed in very cold before kicking in. -Handling. Too much body roll; the rear of the car seems too heavy & doesn't like the cut and thrust of a mtn road. -On long trips, the front seats get pretty hard. -Gas mileage: 21mpg, mostly hwy.
