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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Pros

Solid feel like a tank, great power straight 6, great Mercedes looks, and build quality!!!

Cons

Can be pricey to maintain, unless you do your own maintenance.

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.

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.

Great Car, I'd Recommend It If You Can Find It — Best car I've ever driven. Defiantly a lot more fun then my 190e its everything I hoped it be and it delivers in every single aspect that cars have. Very quick, tight turning, good breaking distance. It looks phenomenal for a 95 the interior and exterior looks better then most of my friends year 2000+ cars. Everything on it is basically original except upgraded shocks and springs. gas milage is pretty bad but for the performance of the car its expected. Overall best car ever and it defiantly makes me want to stick with the benz's forever.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Mercedes-benz C 36 Amg (1995) — This car is 13 years old and still it has a great performance with no major mechanical troubles. Bought it with a very good price and it has not lost a lot in value. Good appearence, Steady drive, and extremely fun. Drifting in that car is Fantastic with a great handling. Its ASR gives it a good drift when it's off.
