If only it down shift faster
By GTS348 on
1997 Mercedes-Benz C-Class C280 4dr Sedan
I got it used last year and so far
there is no problem. The only thing I
had to replaced is the fan belt. The
car runs runs good, I tested 0-60 at
7.5 seconds! Better than M-Benz's data
after it breaks in. The Fuel Econ is 21
per gallon. It has last interior
(parts) noise than my brother's 97 BMW
528. It has more room than a BMW 3
series. However, the seat up and down
feature does not move the whole seat.
The 5 speeds transmission works good at
high speed, it speeds up fast even with
the last gear. But the transmission
down shift to slow, the kick down has a
1 second delay! Also, the auto climate
control does not respond as fast as it
24V Line 6 engine (97) and the fact
that the transmission is a 5 speed.
Rear seats bottom pading can be removed
easy. Rear seat head rest on be lowered
from the front. Big arm rest storage.
Where is the sports mode on the
transmission? Steering should also goes
up and down. TCS and Side SRS should be
there even for a 97 Benz. Mp speed
adjustment on the intermit-whiper. They
still gave you a cassette! Lumbar
Support it an option?! And the wheel
and tires are too small.
