1996 Mercedes-Benz C-Class C280 4dr Sedan


I bought this car when it was 11 years old and I can say I got a pretty good car for how old it was. It dirves like a dream, and has had no major engine trouble. It did fail to start one really cold day, but other than that has been really reliable. One problem I did encounter was the electrical sensor for the emergency break would not acknowledge that it was disengaged, and the dash alert would beep constantly. Anything with a motor worked very well--windows, seats, mirrors, etc. I had to do no major upkeep to it other than belts and oil changes. I loved the power too! For an 11 year old car, it could still smoke some tough guys at the green lights

Best Features

How tight it turned! On a dime! Beautiful on the insdie. I loved the heated leather seats.

Worst Features

For being an 11 year old car there is nothing much to suggest other than, of course, making MB vehicles less exclusive to maintain.
