Over-engineered cars are not reliable
By Mike on
2001 Mercedes-Benz C-Class C240 4dr Sedan (2.6L 6cyl 6M)
The 2001 C240 is a solid ride. Looks good,is safe,but not dependable! I am at the delearship every other month. Everyone there knows me by name. Where do I begin? Locking problems with the keys, then locking problems with the cpu. The leather de-laminated from both doors. fuel pump had to be replaced at 42000 miles. rear brake lights not working,defective SAM card. Front directional not working, defective SAM card. finally car will not start when engine is warm, the timing chain-cam sensor is defective! Most repairs were not under warranty, and averaged 800 dollars per event.
Paint quality excellent. Safety excellent. Ergonomics are good.
Speedometeter, tach is hokey looking. It should be round and more sporty. The stock 16 inch rims should be 17 inch.
