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

Review

About 3 months ago I picked up my first MB: a 2001 C320, one owner, 51,000 miles, garage-kept, and appeared well cared for. I am GREATLY disappointed in the paint. The paint easily chips, exposes the metal below and begins to "spider" out with blistering rust underneath the surrounding paint. If left unchecked, the car will be a mess in less than a year. It reminds me of the '72 AMC Gremlin my father purchased for less than $2k. The paint job was horrible and did not last a year! Never in my wildest dreams did I think that paint would be a problem with this car. I have stuck to American cars until this one and I am sorry I did not purchase another Cadillac or a Buick. I miss my Cadillac!

Favorite Features

Handling, seems solid, accelerates well, good ergonomics.

Suggested Improvements

Paint, Paint, Paint. Mercedes Benz, THIS IS A NO-BRAINER!!!! The shoddiest automakers have paints that are durable!
