Fun Car but be careful!
By Mike on


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


I have owned this car for a year and a half now and have had to take to the dealership about 15 times for various quirks. Not that the car has really alot of problems just the dealerships have crappy mechanics so far. They break stuff and the service managers are scripted on what to say it gets annoying. MBUSA doesn't care either about the problems as they are all independantly owned. Not what I would expect from a supposedly classy luxury car. As long as the car has no problems you are ok but the dealerships are terrible. The new models dont even have the free service deal anymore which is sad for what you pay for the vehicle. Better cars out there for the money but I dont feel as safe in them

Best Features

Tons of safety features in the car and excellent crash ratings. Rear power sunshade nice for rear passengers. Has plenty of passing power even at high freeway speeds. Very comfortable

Worst Features

Make CD player standard not a tape deck. Switch to rotary knobs on climate control instead of push button. Takes forever to adjust temps. Volume control on steering wheel slow to respond and they need to give you a dipstick to check your engine oil not electronic. Sensor died twice already.
