Concern w/Transfer Case & future quality
By Henry W on


2007 Mercedes-Benz C-Class C280 4MATIC Luxury 4dr Sedan AWD (3.0L 6cyl 5A)


Overall I like my C-280. I gave low quality rating b/c of my Transfer Case issue after only 3 yrs. Pros: Handles well in the snow, 27 mpg highway average, looks expensive Cons: Passenger head rest and rear view mirror rattles. To fix I have to keep head rest lowered when seat isn't in use and every so often have to adjust the mirror. Mile marker only does whole #s so can't tell when gone 1/2 mile. CD changer fills glove compartment. At 90K miles, the Transfer Case began making rubbing noise on tight turns. Would have been $500+ repair w/o CPO warranty.

Best Features

Handles well in the snow, 27 mpg highway average, looks expensive

Worst Features

Minor issues: Improve passenger head rest and rear view mirror quality. Expand glove box so fits CD changer, mile marker only goes to whole #s so can’t tell when you have driven ½ mile. Major issue: Improve Transfer Case quality
