A solid, reliable & comfortable car
By Bob on


1994 Mercedes-Benz C-Class C220 4dr Sedan


It's fair to say that it will not give go-cart like feedback, but the RWD layout and wide wheel base will provide composed handling. The car effortlessly eats motorway miles, but it is fair to say that it is underpowered on acceleration. The build quality & reliability (aside from the pitifully bad mono-wiper unit)is however second to none. Every door has a reassuring clunk, every switch a factory new click and it's obvious this car was designed to be over-engineered. It always starts, never breaks down, and even the paint work hasn't faded. Surprisingly parts are relatively easy and cheap to source (not that you will ever need to), and are extremely simple to maintain and fix. A solid car!

Best Features

The excellent build standard and the sense of quality that you get are beyond comparison when any other similar range car. Was it actually made in a factory or chiseled from granite? It is simple to fix, easy & surprisingly cheap to maintain, and it incredibly comfortable on long journeys.

Worst Features

The comedic and pathetic attempts of the part masquerading as a windscreen wiper are monumentally bad. When it works, it flaps about like a one armed man trying to juggle soft boiled eggs. Keep the piston lubricated or it will lock up and that means removing the unit for a simple but annoying repair
