Pros

Great Brakes, Great Handling, Strong Acceleration after 100 MPH good fuel economy

Cons

Take off could be faster, Imitation leather

75

Durable Mercedes — Acceleration is good after 40MPH car has better top speed than acceleration. Brakes are one of the best i have ever used. Build Quality is probably better than the new ones Appearance is a little out dated but not bad. Cost of Ownership is pretty cheap when you consider this car has never left me stranded or required major repair Fun Factor - Handling is off the chain 80,000 miles and still can hit 130MPH would go faster but its Limited at that speed did i mention its an Inline-4

Fun, Solid-built Car That You Feel Safe In — I've now had this car for over 8 years (my daughter drives it, now) and have been very pleased. It wasn't terribly fast, but with a 2.3L engine it's not really expected to be. Mileage was good, with high 20s and low to mid 30s common. The car is also very comfortable and enjoyable to drive.

Always A Thrill — 1998 MB C280, ~80 450 km (~50 000 miles). Always a pleasure to drive, engine sounds wonderful, acceleration is more than enough to fuel your need for speed. Its not the fastest, but its fast enough (0-60 mph in 7.5-8 seconds). Repairs to date have not exceeded 3000 USD.

A Sporty Economy Car With Luxury. Still Good Cars For The Money At A Couple Years Old. — Other than slightly higher than normal maintenance costs, we love this car. Sporty, comfortable on long trips, and it gets 35 mpg on the highway, 24 around town. (C230). Its an economy car with classic looks. Even though this is the entry model, it has all the options you'd want ,standard.

Last Year They Made Mercedes In Germany. Very Proud Of That!!! — Performance Is great. Handles Awesom. Faster Than Alot Of V8's Ive Owned. The Only Thing The Car Ever Needed Was Spark Plugs. The Interior Is Near Perfect In This Car. The Exterior Is In Good Condition But Could Use A Good Cleaning . It Gets Great Gas Mileage 28MPG city, And 32 Highway. Its A Great Car To Drive.

A Gold Mine For The Future — blistering acceleration and superb handling under slow high speeds and braking........a monster in disguise. wonderfull two tone leather and very solid build in and out. maintainance isnt too cheap but remeber its a merc fuel is abit dear too but then again your at a 100 mile under ten seconds with torque to spare. A car to drive b4 you hang up your gloves!!!!!

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

Good Car Overall. — A typical Mercedes Benz. Very reliable, very efficient and has a good, low fuel consumption, engine. Very good gear changer. A little hard steering wheal. And sitting in it is a little bit uncomfortable, and tight. A good car overall.
