Bad wiring, poor service
By Beth_walters on


2003 Mercedes-Benz C-Class C240 Rwd 4dr Sedan (2.6L 6cyl 6M)


In the 6 months I've owned my C-240
I've had 5 problems, all electrical
(Elect. ignition switch, alarm, gas
gauge, head lights & brake lights).
Other than that it's a pretty good car:
good mileage & handling. Interior
design could be better: cup
holders, location of switches and
screen. However, the service I had
from my dealership was poor,
especially when after the first couple
of problems I heard from the owner
himself, "I don't know what to say. I
don't know what to tell you. I don't
kwow what I can do." You know what,
that's not it. I may get another
Mercedes in my future, but it won't be
a C240 and it won't be from the same

Best Features

Information screen, CD player, good mileage, handling, seat warmers, climate control, teleaid.

Worst Features

Cup holders are cheesy, need better quality and better location. CD/Radio needs to be more user friendly with more standard percs (like constant time lapse. Door locks should be on door. Seat belts difficult to buckle.
