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


This car is very fun to drive when it
is working. We have almost 30 pages
of service records in 2 1/2 years. We
tried to get Mercedes to buy this car
back, but no luck. Then the dealer
offered us well below retail on a
trade in. It has been in the shop 13
times--phone has never worked right,
a/c broke twice, fuel gauge, windows,
rear screen, etc. etc. Our dealer
(Stead Walnut Creek) had treated us
with contempt. We have been told by a
Lemon Law attorney that they fight
every single claim to trial, which is
obviously worth the effort to a small
minority of people. We are done with
Mercedes forever!

Best Features

Drives great/tight when it works. Beautiful interior.

Worst Features

Every thing else, but mostly the way you are treated by Mercedes--how do they keep their customers for more than one car???
