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

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!

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.

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 !!!!

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.

Pros

Very reliable and attractive mid-size/small car. Awesome DNA and fun to drive on the highway!

Cons

Premium gas only! City driving sucks. Of course, because it's a Benz...maintenance costs are the same just as if this was a 2013 (if you use a certified MB dealership...which I do).

Chic Roadster With A Classy Profile. — Overall good car, but could use more hp for the stop & go city life. The flip side of the city life restraints is that it's awesome in fitting in tight & limited parking areas. Today with premium gasoline being so high, it would have been nice to know that beforehand.

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.

C230 Kompressor — Fast acceleration, stops on a dime and handles corners like nothing. It's a Benz, amazing build quality, very reliable. Some maintenance can be a little high, but if you learn to do things yourself, it, in cases, can cost less than domestic cars.

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

Cheap, Sporty, Comfy And A Merc So Keeps On Truckin... — This car is cheap to fuel i get around 42MPG on the motorway, All cool extras cruise control alloys everything electric i paid 1400 for a 2000 model with 90k miles on the clock. what a result I have done 30 k in about seven months with a replacement air flow sensor around £400 fitted from merc but otherwise excellent cheap motoring. Only issue is tyres tend to wear a lot on the inside of the tread and you dont see it untill itis up on the ramp, performance is really good for an auto box good smooth changes. originally would have been around 150 BHP when new, ercon its lost 1 BHP/year so around 140BHP but with K&N filters and stainless exhaust drives truly like a new car but without the cost. Loves high speed roundabouts sticks like GLUE!
