Pros

Reliable 100% If you follow the maintenance guide.

Cons

Acceleration Noise

80

A Future Classic. — I bought this car in 2004, and I havent had any problems with it. It runs smooth and quiet on highways, however is bit noisy on the streets when you accelerate. The car is fun to drive, still has the Mercedes Benz feeling " Classic, Elegant" Can be expensive to keep it like brand new; however, if you have one of these babys, you will invest your money worthly. I love this Benz, the only I wish is that Mercedes in the future creates adaptors for ipods and navigation systems.

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

Cons

Great Car. — Impressive performance for the money; acceleration was good. Although, more power on hand before the supercharger kicked in would've been nice. Superior built quality. Mercedes-Benz without issues experienced by later MB's due to the ghastly merger with Chrysler. Beautiful, "restrained but classy" exterior design. Interior deign absolutely beautiful for its price. Should have come standard with electronically adjustable front passenger seat! No maintenance issues at all. The drive was classic Mercedes-Benz; nice, heavy, smooth, gliding ride quality.

Pros

Truly a Benz, beauty and performance!

Cons

Needs more acceleration

45

1999 C280 - Performance And Elegance — I wish there was a way to get more horse power out of the car. Performs wonderfully, but I want there to be better acceleration. The electronically controlled throttle doesn't help at all...but I love her, and her name is Olivia! Mercedes did a good job on the updates after 98, but fell off with its successor. Not a fan of it, still a nice car (2001-2006)

Pros

it is fun to drive and it gets good gas mileage for me and probably for you

Cons

nothing bad at all

35

Buy It If You Can Find It — Preformance: 0-60 in 5.2 sec, braking is great for high speeds and slow speeds, it gets a turning circle of 35.2 ft. This car is garage kept and has never needed any repairs/work done (except for its oil change and government checkup/emmisions test. The exterior is outdated but the black interior is great with the AMG logo on the headrest. The U.S. government says it gets 16/21 miles per gallon, but for me it gets 19/26, thats the same as the new hybrid S400. I mean my 4.3 liter V8 gets the same mileage as the weak S400, Come on Diamler this car is fun to drive because it has amazing acceleration and a top speed (I tested it) of 172 mph and my kids love it.

Pros

Modified suspension makes the car ride a little less mercedes-like and  more like the AMG models.  Excellent handling now.  Power is good especially after the intake mods. V6 is super smooth

Cons

Weight of the car makes the brakes work hard. Good enough for the street, discs glows red  after a couple of hot laps on the track. Cat converter causing back pressure. No way to truly turn off the traction control, off button only turn off part of the system, can't drift her.

On A Scale From 1 To 10? I'll Give Her An 8 — As always i am constantly doing stuff to her. Right now it has been lowered, Eibach springs and Blistien sport shocks riding on 17 inch wheels, 18s were too heavy, Wheels are deep-dish with black body color centers and chrome lip. Light tan leather interior. Exhaust is next on the list. The search for more power never ends.

Benz service is a rip-off at least in my area. I guess if you oun a benz, you won't mind paying more to get it serviced. Parts are expensive (AMG).

Not Sure I Will Be Able To Go Back To What I Really Can Afford. — Looks good. Sounds great. The ride is fantastic. You're definitely connected to the road,via the supertuned suspension, yet the ride is smooth without feeling soft. Cornering is incredible. Many times I thought I was going to loose it when I didn't, and when I did, the Anti-skid protocal saved my ass. (Twice) I have a 150K miles on it and it still runs like a top. I change the oil religiously every 3-4K miles with mobil-one synthetic. I drive my car the way it was built to be driven. I don't beat it. I treat it well and it hasn't failed me yet.

Great Car For Entry Price — I have had this car over 7 years and it has performed flawlessly! It does everything well. Surprisingly good gas mileage but has 6 cylinders that can wake up and get your heart going! Has traction control which has come in handy a few times...even in Texas. Overal, a great car - would recommend whole heartedly put my heart really wants a 911.

Comfort, reliability, average maintenance cost

Cons

Some "people" don't like Mercedes.

Won't Sell!!! — (WAGON)Kompressor engine, 200hp, handles very nice. In 12 years no repairs were needed, except for usual maintenance and service. Build quality is exceptionally good, so any part replacement or upgrades are really easy to install. As about styling, it is by far the best base to build a Driftwagon, both visually and by performance. LPG installed. Fun factor... Well it'd be a lot more fun with limited slip diff installed. Oh well...

Is fast for being a four door heavy car!

Cons

Not The Prettiest But Drives The Best! — Too expensive to fix. But has never left me stranded anywhere and me and this car have been together for over 4 years! Drives smoother than anything I have been in before though. This is my baby and once I sell it I will miss it. Makes you want only luxury cars though. A honda or ford will never cut it again.

Over all it was a blast to drive.

Cons

All the extra features would cost a arm and a leg to repair.

I Really Liked The Car. — The power that this car has is great but the supercharger took to long to kick in. It has been years since the police have followed me because of the car I drove. The brakes are an upgrade to amg which worked better when you drove the car a ways. The outside looked great but the inside seem to be cheap looking.
