2002 Mercedes-Benz C-Class C240 4dr Sedan (2.6L 6cyl 6M)


I bought my C240 in Sept. 2002. I have had problems with the right side mirror not coming back up after I put the car in drive from reverse. Took it in many times to have the problem fixed, all under warranty. I have had BAS-ESP error messages appear, and had a grinding noises in the brakes on a couple of occasions when coming to a soft stop, where the ESP light came on. (There was no way the car lost traction) The wiring on the back blinker light needed to be fixed recently, which was costly for the repair. On a recent trip to CA last summer, the air conditioning decided to stop working. The AC would die, then start back up after about a minute.

Best Features

Comfortable ride, very safe. Was involved in a rear-end collision, and only had minor neck/back pain. Handles great in the snow! Love the center console that heats/cools food or drinks. EC/Rest button keeps car warm or cool while you are away shopping. Very nice on those cold winter days!

Worst Features

In-dash CD player a must. Improve the cup holders. They are way too small.
