I purchased this C280 in Dec 2007 - had 91k- had it inspected and told in pristime condition- great acceleration- it still gets looks on the road- stereo and cd changer work great- drawback- if you are going to own a mercedes benz be prepared for expensive repairs- i had multiple things go out- keep in mind the items that went out were normal for its age- needed new tie rods and shocks, new power steering unit $973 , new rear rotors and pads, new coolant resevior and radiator hoses and 4 new tires. My mechanic had to get some parts from the dealership- very expensive- 4k for everything... will be along time before anything else goes- still love this expensive driving machine!
6 cd changer and stereo- interior leather is awesome and the exterior looks great- solid body with a classic look
Considering how many mercedes are bought in the U.S., Mercedes needs to lower the cost of the parts .. shocks can cost over $200 per shock due to the luxury drive suspension.
