Great little car

1998 Mercedes-Benz C-Class C280 4dr Sedan


We bought this car new after owning a '94 C280. Now, eight yrs later, everything still works like new, the interior leather looks great, and it still gets 30 mpg on the highway. We have been religious about maintenance and the only repair issue we've faced is when the AC went out at 100,000 miles. Paint has held up very well, also. I'm sure it helps that my wife drives the car and she drives like an 80 yr old granny; but still, after this many yrs and miles, to still not have even one oil leak is, I think, a testament to how well this car was built. I would drive it anywhere w/o hesitation.
