Great fun, lotsa maintenance
By GTanner on


1998 Mercedes-Benz C43 AMG C43 4dr Sedan


This beast is a blast. 308HP, 0-60 in
5.8, & almost .9 Gs in the skidpad
means nothing until you've had it
through mtn curves or on the open rd.
130 feels like 60. Had the car for a
yr and in the shop monthly. Small
things usually. But, when it rains
real hard and water pours in through
the AC/heating vents shorting out
motors & sensors, leaving 3" of
standing water in the floorboard,,
costing $7K it's time for something
more reasonable. Don't know what it is
with German cars. Great fun to drive
but totally unreliable. If you have
the time and $ to keep taking this car
to the dealer, by all means, indulge
yourself. I probably would.

Best Features

Speed, speed, speed; and great handling

Worst Features

A six speed manual Herren, bitte.
