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


I look forward to the drive everytime I get behind the wheel and step on the gas, as it has power, handling, and style. What I hate is the reliability. I had more problems with this one car than with my 10 previous cars combined, including a 20 year old $300 Accord. I still love it but it's easy to go bankrupt fixing this car. Problems: power steering pump broke, cam and crank sensors ($1k repair), dual zone climate not dual anymore, vent solenoid making noises, alternator replaced, numerous light bulb failures, other minor electrical gremlins that I stopped bothering with. Do not buy this car unless you have FULL warranty or money to fix it. Otherwise great driver's car.

Best Features

Power, speed, handling, the Mercedes feel.

Worst Features

Reliability, reliability, reliability. Mercedes Benz needs to get their act together and make more reliable products.
