Maintenance Queen

2005 Mercedes-Benz C-Class C230 Kompressor Rwd 4dr Sport Sedan (1.8L 4cyl S/C 6M)


Had car since it was new.
2005 Mercedes C-230 Kompressor.
Don't get me wrong the car is beautiful and is a jet when it comes to ride and handling but thats not what we use it for.
The car is a daily to work and back car and every now and then a road trip maybe one state over.
it seems like every week there is some expensive service that needs to be done on it.
The car eats tires due to a poor suspension geometry, and you have to change the brakes every 20k miles it seems like.
The car leaks oil and constantly showing error messages.
I pride myself at maintaining my cars but I cant seem to stay on top with this one.
Getting rid of it as soon as possible.
90k on it now.

Best Features

seat warmers

Worst Features

Suspension issues. Give me a engine oil dipstick so I can check it!
