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


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.


Best Features

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


Worst Features

Better seats.

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


Review

The service at Bob King's Autohaus has been SUPERIOR, lucky because I take it in on a regular basis for one thing or another. The computer chip/remote key went haywire after 2 1/2 years; the door handle had to be replaced; and I've had to buy new tires twice already. I think I better dump it before the warranty runs out!


Best Features

Safety features: air bags and tel- aid. Exceptional maintenance service.


Worst Features

The air handling system needs to be more refined in how it distributes the air - awkward to adjust also. The headlights need adjusting - shine into oncoming traffic like brights are on.

2001 Mercedes-Benz C-Class Sedan 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.


Best Features

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


Worst Features

Service department, overall reliability of the vehicle.

Review

Car handles very well, C320 has excellent power...ride is "sporty" and fun to drive. Some minor inconveniences such as side view mirrors too small...cup holder inconvenient. Difficult to get in and out of rear seats.


Best Features

Handles very well...plenty of power.


Worst Features

Side view mirrors, power plug location, cup holder needs redesign.
