1996 Mercedes-Benz C36 AMG Sedan C36 4dr Sedan


Review

I bought this car from the 2nd owner in extremely well kept condition. I am 6"4'and 240 lbs and I have plenty of room. This car is a rocketship, especially between 60 and 120 MPH. It pulls like an absolute freight train. The build quality is superb. When you close the doors, it sounds like a vault. A firm ride but you don't buy one of these to float along like a Caddy. I have owned over 42 cars, including an 87 Buick GN, 03'BMW M3, and many 60's muscle cars. This car is extremely fun to drive and I love that they are super rare. I have not seen another one on the road yet! Absolutely Bullet proof drivetrain. If you can find a well kept example with lower miles, pick it up while you still can.


Best Features

Beautiful inline six howl under full throttle.


Worst Features

More power(of course)

Review

More look for the money than any car out there. People can't believe that my well kept '96 is that old. It still drives beautifully and it moves. Since most parts were canibalized from other Mercedes, it is not too expensive to fix. I love it.


Best Features

Sound when accelerating

Review

Even after 7 years the C36 runs fast
off the line and accelerates best
between 60 to 90 MPH. The handling is
precise and active. As is typical with
most performance automobiles, the ride
is stiff, but the control is there.


Best Features

Performance and handling. German craftmanship.


Worst Features

Not for the luxury minded. The ride is stiff and does not have the feel of a luxury automobile.

Review

The C36 is a dull looking car nutil you
see it move. Once the engine
management system was finally fixed
after almost 2 months of waiting for
parts from Germany the car has run well
and fast. Its best at stoplight
acceleration and even better from 60 to
90 mph. It downshifts instantly at
these speeds and go like a bat out of
H.... There is good interior room and
the seats are very comfortable. The
trunk is adequete. The handling is
super but the trade off is a somewhat
firm ride.


Best Features

Engine, handling, seats, sound at full bore, solid feel like nothing can bother this car


Worst Features

Transmission doesn't downshift well from 5 to 55 mph and can lead to slow moments, dealers have no idea how to service the AMG cars
