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


This is my third MB and my biggest
disappointment with the
reliability/quality. The car has been
in for warranty service approximately
8 times for electrical issues, new
speedometer, key problems, radio
reception, new back window, door lock
problems, faulty fuel gauge, mirrors
that readjust themselves, ticking
noise in the front engine compartment
and it now needs to go back for a rear
windshade that won't turn off,
squeaking shocks and strange noise
from transmission. It's unfortunate
that such a comfortable and
beautifully styled car has all of
these annoying problems. This could
be my last MB.

Best Features

Best feature is the tiptronic transmission (Porsche could learn a few things from MB here)

Worst Features

Fix the annoying lag time between pushing down on the accelerator and the reaction. I cannot believe my upgraded radio does not come with a CD.
