1998 Mercedes-Benz C-Class C230 4dr Sedan

Review

Two of the origional tires developed problems early on as the steel belts went out of allignment and the tire manufacturer refused to honor their warranty forcing the purchase of a complete set of new tires. No need to focus on the problems while the car was under warranty as Mercedes handled those well. Afterwards the electronics in the dash went haywire and caused some problems under the hood.Total cost to repair both was almost $1100. When I marveled that the dealership had these unusual parts in stock, I was told that this problem has become very common causing Mercedes to stock their dealerships with these parts for prompt repairs.

Best Features

When the car is right it's very pleasant to drive and gets 30 miles per gallon or so on trips.

Worst Features

Don't tarnish the Mercedes name by putting origional tires on the car that are second rate. Extend the warranty. Since I don't trade every few years, I won't buy a Mercedes the next time unless they extend their warranty.
