Great Solid Vehicle, Pricey Accessories, Electronics Glitches, Still Pleased! — Just bought a used Mercedes C280 w/ 106,000 miles on it 02-23-07. Car felt very comfortable, safe and solid from the get go. I'm tall at 6'4 and have a lower back problem from years of playing sports. Lumbar support could be better, but still was able to manipulate seat for maximum comfort while driving. Only problems so far have been mostly a bad ignition relay ($300) that the dealer paid for. Car would be running great but then once you stopped it and left it for a few minutes it would not start, sounded like it was not getting fuel. Apparently that was just the case, #1 cylinder has something attached to it to inject fuel on the start. Now repaired and has been fine ever since. Also, Left rear turn signal light has a short and I can fix it. Also, fog lights (for right rear) are not functioning like they should. Car gets 29.11 mpg on the highway at 74 mph and runs like a top. I bet I could get over 30 with a lighter foot. All in all, I am still very pleased. I never thought I would like a smaller version Mercedes or otherwise, but I am very satisfied. Great city car, great highway trip vehicle, killer turning radius, you can put down the rear seats and get a load of ski's and snowboards in there and still have some room. If you find a good deal, and car was maintained (although I'm only hoping mine was) I would say you should buy it. I'm a very finicky buyer and was looking for the right vehicle for nearly 3 months before I bought this C280 (sport models look cool to). Oh, and my key was pretty rough so I bought a new one = $170 from dealer only (rip off)! Also, antenna is missing mast...replace the whole thing...$100 (double rip off)! Ouch, the price you pay for these accessories can be crazy. Also, (come to think of it...maybe I should take it back) but the clock and gear indicator (very cool transmission, by the way.. smooth tiptronic style) for 2000 and later) are showing hieroglyphics. Was quoted $1700 to replace...will fix with a piece of Black tape and a clock from the Auto parts store affixed over the malfunctioning readouts (I know this is ghetto...but 1700, come on! Paid $9000 for the car...can't complain but too much. Enjoy this car..watch out for electronics, negotiate price if anything is whacked...I was too taken with the ride and might have been able to barter the price had I known how much these parts were to replace! Still very satisfied, hope to get many years of driven out of this one! Good luck!

If You Can Afford A Mercedes Benz, Buy One. — its a very luxurious car. a head of the time for the price you pay for it if you would have bought one new. mine has pure blue HID. it has all the update tech you would expect from Mercedes Benz, such as TCS (ASR), sport tuned suspension, plush leather, and lots of little gadgets that most cars of 2000 didn't have, but have now. the C class excels in comfort over everything else. also. its equipped with a peppy Lil 2.8l V6 pumping out 210whp on despite its 3300lb frame. the best part about this car in my opinion is its quality band for your buck

It Is A Rock Solid Car With Beautiful Handling. — Handling is not as good as bimmers, but good enough to be enjoyable. Chassis is very solid, making you feel safe inside. Special Edition features stylish AMG interior. 4 banger engine is very torquey, although small. I love it!

Dont Buy A W202 Buy A W203. — Bad car. Not the best of what Mercedes could and should have done. I got for a hs grad gift and im very very dissapointed with it. its not fast, not very reliable, very pricy to maintain, interior looks very cheap and makes funny sounds while driving, radio sucks but not like it matters becauze you cant hear it because of the awfull tire noise, rde quality is awfull, "Sport" modle ha what a joke. Thye completly killed the sterring and its too hard to turn it. no standard cd, very very unconmfterble sinc ei drive about 80 miles a week. Its a 2000 so by then you would think they would change the body style by then. this car is for someone who has never experienced what a Mercedes actually is.

Pros

Best car I have ever owned for merging into traffic. The car feels safe(...feels tough as a tank) and stable anywhere, but is definitely in it's element on the highway. On a long distance trip(7+ hrs. on highways) achieved 33MPG.

Cons

Rear seat area is not very roomy. Uses 91 octane fuel. Repair parts are on the expensive side of things.

Built Like You Would Expect A Mercedes To Be Built. — Sedately aggresive apearence with moderate ground effects and a slight truck lip. I have no trouble finding my car in the parking lot. The car is solid, comfortable to drive, and the stability control in winter driving cannot be explained...it just works. On long trips, the seats get a little uncomfortable. Merging with traffic and highway driving are this cars nitch. You will find it hard to believe that you are driving a 4 cyl. until you get to the gas pump. And parking lots are no problem either, as this thing has a super tight turning radius. Finally, the braking is also first class with just the right feel. Highly recomended automobile.

Great Everyday Car. — It is just a great little gas saver car. Very reliable, has great safety features, feels very safe to drive. If you are an MB lover this the car to get for an every day drive. It is inexpensive, and dependable.

Merc C180 Sport Estate — I've just bought a Mercedes C180 Sport Estate. I only got it yesterday. Well the missus did, and I sorely regret not keeping it for meself. Seems like a nice enough motor, plenty of potential, very practical and confortable etc etc. Then I forget I've not a 60 year old dear with a yappy dog and jump back on the bike but I can see the advantages of this car. If I could buy two like this I'd have one too. Build quality and longevity seem 2nd to none, very impressed. Not great speed as I'm talking about the C180 UK model but it's a quick enough motor for a cargo lugging estate. Err, it red?? That's about it. It's left a good but shallow impression on me.

Pros

Ride , maneuverability , hwy. gas mileage , superior quality of int.ext. materials .

Cons

Rear view mirror swivel design not robust for longevity , city gas mileage , runs about 10 degrees C warmer than most cars even a Ferrari 328 runs cooler - how's engine life ? Pain to add CD changer to fiber optics in trunk .

Luxury Car With Stong Motor And Decent Gas Mileage — I liked my 1998 C230 a little better overall due to simpler engine , better gas mileage and runs at lower temp. C280 is faster , smoother and motor is really quiet under acceleration . Can hear a faint transmission whine under modest acceleration because motor is so quiet whereas 230's 4 cylinder moderate buzz made trans. sound unnoticed . Got 29 mpg on hwy. at 75-80 with 3 people in the C280 . Rides more like a larger luxury car but smaller size makes around town maneuvering a breeze yet suspension is not floaty . My son's 1994 BMW 325i feels like its much better connected to the road than either C230 or C280 but its not in the same ballpark in terms of quality of interior and exterior materials/paint quality . At 81,000 miles the C280 is tight as new except very slight driveway speed side to side play in steering . Car makers --- put grease fittings back on ball joints and knuckles !!!!

Pros

Good looks, performance, safety, fuel economy, comfort, pretty much everything. Feels faster than a 170hp car ;)

Cons

Needs some 17" or 18" alloys (preferably AMG Monoblock II's or Brabus Monoblock VI's), C43 AMG bodykit & exhaust, needs to be lowered on sportier suspension! :)

Elegance, Reliability, Safety, Comfort All-in-one! — Very satisfied with this car. Good power, good fuel economy, extremely comfortable all year round. Looks much better than even the newest cars nowadays, but at the same time it doesn't scream, "look at me, I'm an exotic 2-door Ferrari! I have money!" Stats: - 2000 Mercedes-Benz C240 (W202) - 170hp 2400cc V6 engine - 15" stock Mercedes-Benz alloys - Stock bodykit (front & rear) - Air-conditioning, electric windows, ABS brakes, power steering, airbags - 10-way electric & heated seats (front seats only) - Emerald green metallic paint Mods: - Avantgarde W202 grille (S600 style) - Custom AMG pedals - Custom AMG gear knob - iPod car kit
