2002 Mercedes-Benz C-Class C240 4dr Sedan (2.6L 6cyl 6M)


I just purchased a C240, 4 door sedan,
after much research on edmunds and
other consumer websites, comparing the
BMW 325I and Audi A4 quatro. I
consider my self very loyal to Mercedes-
- this is my 3rd one. However, the day
after I took delivery on my new C240,
the instrument panel indicated that my
engine was overheating. Only 4 days of
ownership, Mercedes had to replace the
cooling system fan unit! We'll see
whether this solves the problem.
However, now I'm noticing that my fog
lights are not working properly.
Needing to bring a new car into the
service department is really a bummer,
not to mention a waste of time!
Mercedes quality seems to have
deteriorated over the years.

Best Features

Smoother ride than Audi or BMW. Safety features, like TeleAid, which calls police/ambulance to your car if the airbags go off, and 8 airbags standard. Also, can locate your car if it's stolen. High quality interiors.

Worst Features

Make an in dash CD changer standard, not a dealer option. (Cassette is standard now.) Upgrade the standard speaker system.
