'97 C280
By Uncle Dan on
Vehicle
1997 Mercedes-Benz C-Class C280 4dr Sedan
Review
I bought my '97 C280 in Aug 99. It had only 13000 miles and now only has 34000. It still looks and smells new. I'm not wild about the color (ruby red), but otherwise, it's still one of the best looking small sedans on the road. Quality of the interior is the same as larger Mercedes. Engine/trans is well suited for the car - plenty of power and smooth running. Only had a couple of minor problems, but routine maintenance at a Mercedes dealership is outrageous. I don't need my own personal service advisor and don't want to pay for one.
Favorite Features
Styling and quality control. This car will still be beautiful and a classic in 30 years.
Suggested Improvements
Interior is tight. I'm 6'3" and front legroom is marginal. Back seat is useless when I'm driving. Automatic Climate Control has mind of its own and it's not easy to override it. Variable speed wipers are standard in cheap cars - why not this one?
