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


I purchased my 2001 C240 new and drove
less then 5,000/yr. In that time, every
electronic system in the car that could
fail did so. My dealer was as helpful
as they could be and, after 1-1/2 yrs of
nearly monthly repairs, suggested I
request Mercedes assist me in replacing
the car. It took six months but after
two letters from me and the support of
my dealership, Mercedes helped me
financially to replace the car with a
new 2003 C240. I am delighted with the
new car - absolutely no problems to date
- knock wood! Unlike the first car, the
new one has controls that work the first
time. Time will tell but so far, I am
very pleased with the new C240.

Best Features

Love the AWD and ESP traction control.

Worst Features

Geez guys - surely the steering wheel menu system could be little more user-friendly?
