2001 Mercedes-Benz C-Class C320 4dr Sedan (3.2L 6cyl 5A)


The car was good when it was new. Then everything started to good bad. Audio system went bad several times. Transmission went bad. Sun roof malfunctions. Paint faded badly. Side moulding turns from black to tan. ESS went bad. Brakes vibrate a lot. The dealer was not able to fix this yet for the past 4 years. Gas mileage is way less than what was advertised. Lots of noise on bumpy roads. Engine is loud. Speaker went bad several times. Heating is slow. Vent solenoid went bad several times costing almost $1000 for each visit. CD Changer went bad twice. Turn signal bulb blows out too frequently. Cup holder gets stuck. More room is needed. Electronic diagnosis need to be more accurate. Cost me money.

Best Features

Good looks. Fast. Strong durable engine. Never had an issue with the engine in 5 years.

Worst Features

Do not buy this car unless you can deal with the issues mentioned above.
