Fun to drive but problematic
By JOMD on


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


Bought the 2003 C240 in August 2002
currently 5000 miles. It's now been in
service 5 times but does not qualify as
a Lemon. On the first day at home it
leaked oil all over our driveway due to
a defective seal. That was replaced.
Then the rear screen lost a screw and
it had to be dismantled. The power
moonroof failed and a new motor was
replaced. But the wrong motor was
installed and it had to be replaced
again. Now the break fluid is leaking
due to another defective part. I love
driving it but these problems are
annoying. Will a major malfunction
occur on the freeway with the whole
family in the vehicle?
