Vehicle1997 Mercedes-Benz C-Class C280 4dr Sedan
ReviewI 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.
Best FeaturesStyling and quality control. This car will still be beautiful and a classic in 30 years.
Worst FeaturesInterior 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?
