1998 Mercedes-Benz C-Class Sedan C280 4dr Sedan


Review

As a Mercedes Benz owner for over 15 years and BMW owner of the 525 and 700 series, the Benz always coes first!... From E300's to 420SEL and S500's, My favorite... Is the 98 Widebody, not easily found, rare and still ahead of it's time....Take a 98 CP600 V12 coupe for a weekend ride and return with the meaning on life!

Review

Class is the word for this car. I needed a car for my small business and needed it to be 4 doors, but not too big. Put 15,000 miles on it and only changed oil and replaced tires. Runs like a new car, interior has really held up and steering and power seems like other newer cars I have had. Getting lots of compliments even with its age. It will be my daughter's car next if I ever get rid of it. May buy an electric car for around town and the MB for trips to Vegas. Very solid and worth the price if you can find a clean one.


Favorite Features

Beautiful interior and just the feeling of walking out to a paid off car that still reflects good jugement by the owner.


Suggested Improvements

Bose system needs a Bose capable CD player which this car didn't have. Looking on eBay.

Review

I have been so iumpressed with my C280. It's fun to drive, it handles well in the rain and snow because it has the traction control. The seating maybe a little cramped but you still can ride 4 adults in comfort. The trunk space is exceptional for a small car because the backseats fold down to give more room.


Favorite Features

My favorite feature is the Bose stereo system.


Suggested Improvements

More leg room

Review

This entry level Mercedes has stood the test of time. The styling is not outdated, and reflects the classic look of the S-class of the year. The electrical system is a little buggy, but so is the story with a German car. Major repairs include the Tranny being resealed, and replacement of the AC compressor, but overall the car has shown remarkable endurance, especially considering my mother never changed the oil


Favorite Features

The turning radius of the car is unparalleled. You can cut a U turn from one lane to another.


Suggested Improvements

Backseat room is lacking, but if passengers complain- they can take their own cars!
