1997 Mercedes-Benz C-Class C280 4dr Sedan


When I tried to start the engine in the
cold morning around -5c, it will not
start the first time. It was okay when
I started the second time. The car did
not run smoothly ,always on the first
gear, without proper , at least 3
minutes, warmup. When I pressed the
gas pedal hardly on the stop light, the
transmission did not respond quickly.
It states in the 1st gear and takes
some time to go to the seond gear.
Also, I heard a 'click click' sound
from the 1st gear to the second gear.
It runs perfectly under normal driving

Best Features

luxury features and excellent sound

Worst Features

The transmission should work better. Base the driver report about this model, I totally disagreed. It is a safe car. Not a puppy car.
