    Good Car — There are no little problems only big problem when something goes wrong. Would love to get the car back to its original state. Would be a great car. Leaking, leaking engine. Would love to solve these problems. Great little car.

    Love My C280 — I love my 96 C280. It really is a beautiful car and I love driving it around. It accelerates very well and, while the breaks are a little on the weak side, it gets me where I need to go and I enjoy getting there! I wouldn't want to have any other car.

    Pros: Aesthetically pleasing, comfortable seats, good storage space.

    Cons: Low MPG, breaks are tough, expensive repairs.

    Nice — Sporty, but not as comfort to ride as an e-class. Has loads of power. Looks and feels really new. Great interior design. A bit low. Has oversteer. Fast drive-by. 3rd gear to 120km/h. This is all about this car, really good car. But would reccomend E-class 124 more.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Its a Mercedes

    Cons: High-preassure pump

    Nice Car — Total quality, the drive is second to none, sports mode is awsome. Fuel consumption is brill, average 31 mpg, Insurance is low, Auto box is smooth, the growl is very comforting along with the very responsive engine. Alot of car for little money......I will next get an avantgard.

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: everything

    Cons: nothing

    It Would Be Great With A 5 Speed Manual Option — Excellent car. I like the W202 styling and performance. The interior, as almost all Mercedes, is very durable and comfortable. Great performance out of the 2.8 straight six. Various trim options, mine was the sport model and an upgrade CD player from a Lotus.

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

    Pros: It's a Mercedes!

    Cons: some have wire harness deterioration issues

    Looks Like A Grandma Car But Drives Like A Sport Car. — Great performance but it does not get the best gas mileage. I have owned my 1996 for two year and have only had to add a Water Pump. The car is east to drive. At 13 years old get ready.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: comfort

    Cons: gas mileage

    C200 - Better That Anything From The Asia Auto Makers. — Just look at this cute, medium sized thing. Its what every family needs, not to big, not too small, its just right. It has enough power to overtake and scramble up hills, but at the same time it has wallet-friendly fuel usage. Lots of little extras make driving more fun, and as always, Mercedes build quality leaves nothing to be desired.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Low fuel usage, good looks, good space

    Cons: Not as much street cred as an E Class

    Workhorse For City Or Plain Land. — It was 70kW diesel with 16 valves without turbocharging. With 18" wheels looks far sportier than it was. But it was used for traveling to work. Needed some reapirs due oldness, interior in ATP Tour Esprit looks great. Consumes average 7,2L dieselfuel pro 100km.

    Pros: Technical simply, but with all important modern such as ABS, 2 airbags...

    Cons: Lacks power on hills and on european highways, specially fully loaded.

    Mercedes C280 Elegance 1996 — Great performance from an auto, fantastic build quality, probably the last good one before the rot set in.High maintenance costs but worth it for that feeling you get when driving a Mercedes.Not the best looking car in the world but not ugly by any means. It`ll be a C43 next.....can`t wait!

    Pros: Build Quality & Performance

    Cons: High Running costs
