2004 Mercedes-Benz C-Class Sedan C240 Rwd 4dr Sedan (2.6L 6cyl 5A)


Review

This car is very unreliable. Something is always breaking down. The electric wiring is messed up. First the car shut off on the freeway-no reason. Then the trunk broke and would not lock, speakers went out, then the lighter went out so I can't charge my phone during driving. Then the brake lights have been going out on & off since I've had it. Finally my drivers side lock went out -causing the alarm to go off while driving and while parked. I've been a fool and taken it in to the Arcadia dealership to be fixed which has only cost thousands of dollars. This last estimate ~$700 for a $125 part. They told me their technicians are trained that's why they charge so much. please! Never buy Mercedes. :(


Best Features

the color


Worst Features

pretty much everything. And if they want to keep selling their vehicles they need to take some classes from HONDA, that car was actually reliable

Review

Car was not prpared properly. and pulled to the right, Dealer said he could not repair the alignment unless the customer complained. Several item, such as the automatic tempeature control not working--it was not calibrated at the factory. The automatic transmission leaked because a gasket was used that was not compatble with the fluit. The proper gasket was of a different color and the situation could have been corrected while the car was in for service. MBUSA told me that they do not repair it until it actually leaks. Remember we have a situstion here where we know it WILL LEAK it is only a question of when. For a company like Mercedes, this shure is a lousy attitude, Next car: BMW


Best Features

Good ride and handling. Today, on a 200 mile trip I averaged 29.3 mpg


Worst Features

Better quatlity. Eats tires. Need to get top management at Benz more involved.

Review

This car is amazing in every way. This car has great stability, the steering is very comunative. It responds very good on emergency handling. The ride is comfortable on long trips and it gets good mileage. The bi- xenon lights make the car looks like a beast (in a good way) when you look at it. The trunk is good but not like my wifes E320(great car also). And it also brakes good


Best Features

The responsive driving, braking comfort everything!!


Worst Features

A little more room in the back seat for tall people, everything else leave it like it is!!

Review

My car is C240 Elegantmodel 2001. The troubles I had with this car were: After one year I had to change the original battery. After driving 30,000 km only, had to change the very expensive controlers M 209 545 07 01 and M 203 820 15 85. After a total of 40,000 km I had to change again very expensive parts: the pedal complet sensor M 203 300 01 04 and the oxigen sensor M 001 540 46 17. DaimlerChrysler AG70546 Stuttgart (Möhringen)Germany, the manufacturer, avoided replying to my complains and directed me to the dealer.

Review

My c240 is a 2002.Great car for the price.An affordable luxury car with a lot of amenities. The c240 runs and rides like cars of a bigger size. The mileage is excellent, as I have attained 23/24 mpg city and a surprising 32 mpg highway. The 240 takes turns and curves with ease and is very smooth. The engine is highly responsive when the demand is put upon it.After owning this car for 2.5 years, it is like getting into a new car every time. Would not hesitate purchasing this product again.


Best Features

The automatic "tap" shift is simple and reactive. The electronics are very stable and reliable. Gives all the information than might be needed.A fun car to drive.The warranty is very generous and the service I have received has been impeccable.


Worst Features

The only item on my "wish" list would be a larger trunk or a fold-down back seat as standard.
