2004 Mercedes-Benz C-Class C320 Rwd 4dr Sedan (3.2L 6cyl 5A)


Thought I'd go for the best and trade
up to a Mercedes. Like the lines,
fit/finish and the little star on the
front hood, but stops there. As
others say, Mercedes doesn't know how
to make competitive price car
w/quality. Electrical problems in and
out of shop. 2 new computers, joke of
a phones system, alarm goes off
driving down small town main street,
different lugs for spare, radio is
aweful, computer locks up all the time
requiring a park, off engine and
restart to clear. Auto transmission
is a dog and engine should show more
strength. Sorry, but that's the way
it is...

Best Features

Seats, electronic features (but they are unreliable), lights bright, phone pad.

Worst Features

Re-engineer. Expect a $45k (loaded) car to perform perfectly... not like a geo. Back to basics on the electronics... every time >100F outside the computer did weird things. I'm trading in with ,20k miles on new BMW. They get it.
