Economical car, but weak horsepower
By Michael L on

Vehicle

1996 Mercedes-Benz C-Class C220 4dr Sedan

Review

This car has been very reliable and never had it towed to the shop as of yet now that it has 168,000 miles. This glossy black car looks very classy and luxurious at all levels. It drives well when the speedometer is over 60 MPH+ on the freeway, but from the get go it is slow because of the car is heavy and the engine is a sohc inline-4 with 148 horsepower. My cost of repairs on this car has been reasonable because the C220 had less features. Now the car is 14 years old and there are some wear and tear items that need to be addressed, but as long as it drivable and safe it should be no problems.

Favorite Features

The bose radio, power seats, and moonroof.

Suggested Improvements

The rear seating space can improve because it is crammed for large passengers to go in and out of the car. The moonroof headliner shade has foamed and should be improved and also some of the plastic switches and parts are broken of old age.
