A Really Good Car — I recently purchased a used C280. I have found this car to be very reliable, with excellent pep despite it's age. I will advise other's to make sure to have your vehicle inspected by a certified mechanic that specializes in german vehicles prior to purchasing, because repairs are extremely expensive. The interor and exterior on my car was like new, but because the person I purchased it from failed to perform routine, age appropriate maintenance, my car required alot of servicing. Be sure to look underneath the car, as I learned the hard way that the C class is known to have a problem with the headgasket leaking. This repair will run you $2200-$3200 easy. But I loved the look and performance of the car so, much, i decided to invest in it.

If You Have A Chance They Are A Great Car Mine Has 155k And Runs Like It Did With 20k — Car runs perfect. Just needs a little hear and there but, all repairs are cheap as long as you don't use the Mercedes Dealer. 20-25 mpg and thats not bad for a straight six. I only wish it had heated seats but, would purchase it again and again.

1995 Mercedes-benz C280 — This was my first car and I bought it when it was 10 years old with 190K miles. Being an inexperienced and still-learning driver I drove this hard and heavy, and even with the high miles it was the same the day I sold it as the day I bought it. I would absolutely buy another.

Great W202 — It is a great comfortable and reliable car. The build quality is superb, like in any other Mercedes-Benz. The running costs are very lov, the haven't been any troubles with it, and it is economic to. I think the AMG front on my car, makes it look a bit sportier than normal :) It is a brilliant autobahn cruiser.

Classic Mercedes Benz C280 — This was our first Mercedes, my wife said she was getting a Mercedes and am I really glad she did because I loved this car it had gobbs of power for the highway and the ride was fantastic. This car was built like a tank very solid feel and great build quality. If I had any complaints, it would only be some slightly than higher maintenance cost even with me doing my own. All in all great car I still catch myself looking at clean examples out on the road and think about getting another even with having a newer c class.

Buy Your Used Mercedes And Beware — When will Mercedes recall and compensate? MB knows the wiring loom on these vehicles is a potential disaster. When informed all they can do is quote the replacement price. Someone is going to be killed as a result of this.

Midstate Is Ben's's Are A Disaster — A year ago I purchased a 1995 C280 which I thought was in good condition at least by appearance. Within a year at cost me nearly the purchase price I spend over #3,000 on repairs. Oil leak $1,100, climate control $900, ventilation fan $1,100, spark plug wires $500, AC condenser $500. I'm sure it's not the end.

Very Nice Car — I bought this car a few days ago and absolutely love it. I bought it because it was a good purchase for the type of car. Mercedes have very good history and drives forever if taken cared of. I bought the car from a car lot which was a trade in from someone else. It had 141,000 miles on it and I thought it was low for a 1995. Very nice body as well as paint job on the car. Whoever had the car took very good care of maintaining the maintenance.
