1996 Mercedes-Benz C-Class C220 4dr Sedan

Review

I got this car with 75000 on it and have had to spend some money on it over the last two years. I had it repainted but it was due to a poor repair job the previous owner had done for a minor bump to the rear. Major expenses have been to rebuild the transmission, replace the wiper assembly and replaced the headliner. My mechanic recommended a transmission shop that did a good job for $1400, the wiper assembly was replaced with a used unit and after a year is starting to act up and the headliner was expensive with quotes of up to $500. The struts are getting weak so expect to have to part with some more cash soon. I look at it this say; I could spend it on car payments or..Hey, it's a Benz.

Favorite Features

Classic looks. German cars just drive with a different feel. Decent gas mileage.

Suggested Improvements

The wiper assembly is classic German engineering overkill, too expensive and subject to more areas to fail. A little more low end torque would be welcomed. Better seats.
