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


Review

We bought this car expecting to receive a quality automobile, and it has been nothing but one problem after another. Of the 6 vehicles in my drive way this one spends more time in the shop the the other 5 combined. They obviously need to revamp the electrical system, brakes and train the service departments to deal with complaints instead of ignoring them completely. I have never been more disappointed in a vehicle in my life. What a waste of money, time and effort. Resell value is a joke.


Favorite Features

controls on steering wheel, handling, sound of the unwarranted bose stereo system with 6 disc changer.


Suggested Improvements

Service department, overall reliability of the vehicle.

Review

The vehicle has been in the shop for warranty repair twice a month since purchased - between electrical problems, sensor failures, integrated telephone failures (on 3rd phone), and overall lack of response from MB - RUN from purchasing one of these lemons! It basically boils down to one thing - MB no longer holds the reliability it once prided itself for manufacturing. They have gone the path of "Chrysler" reliability and quality.

Review

No quality customer service here and Mercedes doesn't stand behind the car. Brakes are soft and need replacing often(they suggest every 10-14000 miles). Dealerships aren't knowledgeable enough to do repairs(they nicked my leather, dented the hood and roof top, scratched the wood grain) and denied they did it. Don't buy from Mercedes..honda,toyota,nissan,bmw...anyone else is better.

none

Quality and customer service from dealers as well as Mercedes themselves.

Review

My first Mercedes-a HUGE disappointment. Greatlooking car that drives beautifully but..I feel thatI paid for a Mercedes and got a Dodge or Yugo.The problem-build Quality!The car has only 18,000 miles on it and the list of problems is way too long:Squeaky seats, moonroof malfunctions, software problems, hood swicthes fell off,brakes(rotors and pads had to be replaced at 7000 miles),defective electronics, transmission problems,replaced SOS system,continuous electronic door lock problems.This a comfortable, great driving car that but it is NOT what I expected from Mercedes and it is NOT worth the money.It will be a long time before I look at another Mercedes.


Favorite Features

Looks, driveability, interior comfort.


Suggested Improvements

Quality! Quality! Quality!Have had the car for 20 months and it has spent over 4 weeks at the dealer's repair facility or sitting uselessly in my garage. To date, the only saving grace is that the dealer has been great about fixing everything.
