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


Bought new and within the first week
noticed a crack in the steering wheel.
Dealer replaced. Then the brake light
went out. Replaced. Then the license
light went out. Remote refuses to work
at times. About 3 months in, tried to
back the car out on a winter day and as
soon as I engaged reverse, the engine
died. Should have been a sign along
with the weird engine noises.
Then at 18000 miles, a few weeks over a
year old, the engine stalls on the
A plastic piece on the under side of
the rear passenger door is also loose.
The c240 is a complete waste of time
and money. Stay away!
