Nice Ride at a Price
By Volcalisa on


1996 Mercedes-Benz C-Class C280 4dr Sedan


I've been driving MBs for the past 12
years. The C280 is an excellent ride
and the MB warranty is very appropriate
for a car that seems to have its share
of problems. In the past 2 years I've
had 2 problems that had it not been for
the warranty would have totally
bankrupt me. One is the headgasket
(which from what I hear is a common
problem in the car) and the other was
the gas tank gone bad. MB dealers are
great. Awesome service and awesome
car. I just wish it was more reliable.

Best Features

I love the strong feeling, sturdy, manuevering and outstanding stereo.

Worst Features

Better reliability. From what I hear the headgasket problem was corrected in later years.
