Great turning radius, easy to drive and park, and looks good. Great speaker quality. Cruise control--unlike with some cars--will hold your mileage steady through hills and valleys. Find a great mechanic who doesn't work for Mercedes, and you can keep the maintenance costs down. Solid and safe car!
2002 Mercedes-Benz C-Class C320 4dr Sedan (3.2L 6cyl 5A)
A great car but got some bad stuff Engine is powerful and awesome especially when you reaches 65 70 miles/ hour you'll be flouting on air! its cool classy car you would enjoy it if you can spend 1000$ each month on it because of the Very expensive original parts it got very good mileage on the highways it can exceed 250km/20L ( like 30mpg) on long rides . in the city it may range between 13 to 17L/100km top I face some Air Mass sensor troubles it AC compressor is went down when i spilled a drink inside the AC Oil change each 3000 km for like 50 60$ top .
I love the sunroof Cool engine Bose sound system interior / easy to reach buttons leather
better fuel consumption navigation screen should be included in all MB
2002 Mercedes-Benz C-Class C240 4dr Sedan (2.6L 6cyl 6M)
I bought a pre-owened, certified from a reputable Mercedes Benz dealership. Cup holder didn't last. Did the maintenance as suggested, needed tires in a couple of years and brakes. Then the srs light came on $1200 ti fix. 4 years into ownership the key would not turn so had to be towed. Found out it was the battery, but only after had to pay for a diagnostic test. Noises all in the shocks. 5 years into ownership the key turn all the way with no ignition, tried a new key at $200. Still having this problem periodically, next step is to change a chip at $1200 after a diagnostic test. $$$ I can go on and on, but not enough room here. Next car will definitely not be a Benz. Buyers be ware.
Easy to drive,
You are paying top dollar give customer the quality that they are paying for. If problems are apparent with same models fix the problem for free.
2002 Mercedes-Benz C-Class C320 4dr Sport Wagon (3.2L 6cyl 5A)
Bought on ebay and got a good deal. Was not pristine but overall good. I upgraded tires to Michelin Hydroedge, changed plugs at 100,000 miles and use Mobil One. Car is still tight, fast, solid, fun. Looks good and gets up to 27 mpg highway. Wish I could buy a new one but they do not export C body wagon to USA any more. Big shame! Much rather have a solid used Benz than a new something less. Take care of them and they take care of you.
Handling, quickness, deceiving interior space can haul much more than it looks like. Very short turning circle can U-turn in a residential street.
Import C body wagon again. M-B is missing a good market segment.
I owned this car for 6 months. it was good for a while until the compressor, traction control, stereo, moonroof, transmission all went out at the same time! otherwise it drove like a real sports car with extremely good interior comfort before the probs. i traded it in for a mazda6 and glad i did
speed and comfort
reliability and gas mileage. mpg would relly improve if they used a turbo instead of supercharger (yes there is a difference) super c's. are usually reserved for race cars and should stay tht way.
