1996 Mercedes-Benz C-Class C220 4dr Sedan


As in most of the other reviews, just about every light has burned out. Some have been replaced many times. It's kind of exciting if the car can go between oil changes without some other issue needing to be addressed. The fear of an expensive repair always looms. We bought this car because of the classic look. We still like the look, but drive our Hondas when we truly have to be someplace.

Best Features

The classic look.

Worst Features

Better plastic (it seems that Mercedes has not hesitated to use plastic throughout the interior, especially. An attempt at quality control. Since the newer models have even worse reliability scores, it will take a massive collapse by Mercedes before they replace their arrogance with quality.
