'95 C280, tough to rate

Vehicle
1995 Mercedes-Benz C-Class C280 4dr Sedan
Review
Simply put, when the car is 100%, it's great. I bought it used with 112,000 mi., and I have only put 3000 on it in 6 mo. Because it goes to the mechanic every month. Constant misfires, w. Shield wiper motor broke, leak in interior, speedometer sticks, speakers popped, undercarriage smokes after lengthy trips, and now the transmission is failing. Not to mention all repairs are costly. I previously owned a 320, and was very impressed. This car handles well and has zip, as well as good fuel economy. Major problem is the engine wiring harness (1000$ to fix). Aesthetically pleasing. Small, but comfortable. If I do buy another Benz, it won't be a C class.
Favorite Features
The handling. Secure feel. Friendly console. Roomy for such a small car. Good acceleration. 28/24 mpg.
Suggested Improvements
There was an improvement. It was called a 1998 C280. The 94-97 models all encountered similar problems.
