1998 Mercedes-Benz C-Class C230 4dr Sedan
Virtually no problems with this car. I purchased it used five years ago. Brakes and battery had to be replaced right away, but other than that, routine maintenance is all she needed. I once spilled juice down the gear shifter, costs $1700 to replace transmission control unit and gear shifter That is the ONLY problem I've had in FIVE years. At over 171K, I hate to lay her to rest, but she's lived her life and half of someone elses. Oh yeah, just recently the wiper motor and A/C blower went out. She's probably dying. Goodbye Bessie!
Gas mileage, reliability and acceleration.
The service tech knew without me telling him I'd wasted something down the gear shifter, so....... why does MB put the cup holder near the gear shifter that allows leaks! duh?
