1995 Mercedes-Benz C-Class C280 4dr Sedan


I was actually looking for a much newer model but at the price this one came along at I could not pass it up.

Since then I have changed the brake pads for $150 (the rotors were replaced before I bought it)...It stops like a race car!

The car is a quick running piece.
It will fly if you keep your foot in the gas!
However, the speed is not all the car is about.
It drives really well. It actually rides better than 95% of most new American cars.

That is the great secret here.
This car still has the look of prestige, the performance of a moderately priced sports car (I got mine up to 140 mph on I-95 and still probably had 1,500 rpms left) all at a used Hyundai price!

Best Features

The whole car-The looks-The speed-The Handling-The cheap cost of car care-- -BUT BE CAREFUL HERE FOLKS (that is, please be smart here folks and do not be foolish and take your $2,500 to a retail dealership that will charges 1/2 of the price of the car to do a total brake job) BEST OF ALL IS 26 MPG (mixed)

Worst Features

Blower motors give occasional issues and the other common theme is the stereo amp (the first year they used a separate amp) seems to like to give problems.

Is it reliable? How many miles do you have on your car now?
