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

Review

Loved driving the car, great handling! Made me look forward to the drive to/from work. Fun on the weekends too! However, having an alternator go out at 52,000 miles is ridiculous. We bought this car used, 44,000 miles, in May of 2005. After the alternator was fixed at the dealer yesterday afternoon, drove the car straight to be sold. We felt like this car was ready to become a money pit. We had MANY bulb failures, and a "thumping" that the dealer couldn't ever figure out nor fix. We had researched the Lexus and intended to buy one, but, found this car on the lot and fell in love. Reliability is very important to us, and we (I) made the wrong decision.

Favorite Features

The look of the car, and especially the handling. Rear shade, quality of the leather interior.

Suggested Improvements

Most important, improve the reliability. Better cup holder design (away from the cigarette lighter). More leg room in the front seat. Bigger glove compartment.
