Form over Function
By Matt in Maryland on


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


I bought this car used from a dealership and quickly realized that I would encounter numerous issues with it. It looks great inside and out but it stops there.I have had so many repairs from the dealer they know which loaner car I like best and I have developed a friendship with one of the CSR's at the dealer. At one point they have my car for over 4 weeks trying to determine an issue and even brought Mb Germany into the mix. I didn't expect a MB to have so many issues...broken climate control unit,steering column,cd player,digital dash display and more.The paint chips and has faded in numerous places and the door seals have dry-rotted making for a very loud ride on the road.Poor form MB!

Best Features

exterior styling, window shades, sound system (if CD player worked)

Worst Features

anything electrical, paint quality, all working parts need to be improved upon.
