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.

Pros

Good fuel mileage, safety

Cons

Parts are pricey

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.

Pros

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

Cons

Take off could be faster, Imitation leather

85

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

Classic Early Mb Amg Car — This is a solid, well-built, powerful car with Mercedes quality and not all the complexity of newer models. It is not inexpensive to maintain, but at 147,000 miles still looks and performs better than most new cars. The engine and brakes are as good as it gets.

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

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.

.. — Performance: Acceleration is good, but it can be better.. But we have to remember that, its only a family car.. Brakes are normal. Handling is improverd, because i got 225/40 ZR18 tyres in it. Build quality is normal mercede-benz quality..;)

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.
