2001 Mercedes-Benz C-Class Sedan C320 4dr Sedan (3.2L 6cyl 5A)


Review

Leased it in 11/2000 and purchased at lease-end. Few problems; but ALL cars have problems, ALL of them! I have the sport package with xenons, phone, CD changer and it is an awesome ride especially in light of the hands-free laws in certain states. Would I buy another? Yes! But not where I got this one.


Favorite Features

Integrated phone, xenon headlights, wheels (sport pkg), no-charge scheduled maintenance.


Suggested Improvements

Service in the 'burbs north of Boston sucks because of the Herb Chambers monopoly; and I mean SUCKS. C-class should come pre-wired for phone & CD changer!!! Dealer install $$ is thievery. Dealer R/O avgs should not dictate repairs; broken/worn-out parts should.

2001 Mercedes-Benz C-Class Sedan C240 4dr Sedan (2.6L 6cyl 6M)


Review

I am very fond of German cars, but my experience with the '01 C240 has been a disappointment. This car has spent more time at the dealership than all my previous Benz's (3) and BMW's (5) combined. The dealership has been wonderful and most problems have been covered under waranty. However, it is a hassel finding the time to take car to dealer for repairs. My '99 C230 has been much more dependable. The only time it has seen the dealer is for routine maintance. If you want to drive a "Baby Benz", do yourself a favor and find late model W202 (older C Class)and save yourself alot of trouble and money.


Favorite Features

Exterior styling and comfort


Suggested Improvements

Improve electrical systems, fit and finish of interior trim.

Review

I have had numerous problems with my car. Every electrical feature has had a problem. Got a new motor for my su roof, all light bulbs have been replaced several times within 3 years (never had to do that in my GMC), stahls, recieved new A/C, and the list goes on. I only had my car for 3 years and I had it serviced way too many times for a Mercedes. Customer Service was always good. But this year (2001)Mercedes did not live up to it's reputation. Fun to drive but not worth the hassle of taking it in the shop every other month. I'm too busy for that.


Favorite Features

Beautiful look, interior and exterior. Great handling, zip in and out!


Suggested Improvements

Better seats.
