2001 Mercedes-Benz C-Class Sedan C240 4dr Sedan (2.6L 6cyl 6M)


Review

I am very fond of German cars, but my
experience with the '01 C240 has been
a disappointment. This car has spent
more time at the dealership than all
my previous Benz's (3) and BMW's (5)
combined. The dealership has been
wonderful and most problems have been
covered under waranty. However, it is
a hassel finding the time to take car
to dealer for repairs. My '99 C230
has been much more dependable. The
only time it has seen the dealer is
for routine maintance. If you want to
drive a "Baby Benz", do yourself a
favor and find late model W202 (older
C Class)and save yourself alot of
trouble and money.

Review

I have had numerous problems with my
car. Every electrical feature has had
a problem. Got a new motor for my su
roof, all light bulbs have been
replaced several times within 3 years
(never had to do that in my GMC),
stahls, recieved new A/C, and the list
goes on. I only had my car for 3
years and I had it serviced way too
many times for a Mercedes. Customer
Service was always good. But this
year (2001)Mercedes did not live up to
it's reputation. Fun to drive but not
worth the hassle of taking it in the
shop every other month. I'm too busy
for that.


Best Features

Beautiful look, interior and exterior. Great handling, zip in and out!


Worst Features

Better seats.
