Had to downsize
By keoki on
1999 Mercedes-Benz C-Class C280 4dr Sedan
Previously owned an "S" class and had to downsize. The feel is still MB! Solid as a rock and good handling to boot. I can't figure out why anyone would buy a vehicle that "looks" like a Benz, when you can actually own one without breaking the bank. I purchased this vehicle used but in mint condition. I had the finish "clay- barred" by a local detail shop and the finish looks like a mirror. If you are not a 'lead foot' (easy to do) you will get 30mpg. When you drive this vehicle hard, it acts like it really wants to rock hard! This is a keeper.
Solid MB feel. Great accelleration! She wants to go hard! BOSE audio is excellent! The vehicles are bulletproof!
Brake dust on front wheels. (Had to install 'kleen wheels') The service aspect of MB can be very expensive however, it has been my experience with the two MB that I have owned.
