1998 Mercedes-Benz C-Class Review
w409 says:
i use to have a 3.0 diesel. i had problems with it. the central locking goes down and not all doors will lock. battery goes flat over knight and it`s battery is under the back seat and a real pain to jump start. this happened no end of times. got rid of it in the end. the c180 auto was better.
vs2002 Saab 9-3

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.)

Pros: Smooth, powerful engine

Cons: None

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.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Good fuel mileage, safety

Cons: Parts are pricey

.. — 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..;)

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: MSW 20/5  18" Rims

Cons: it's not lowered yet

Last Year They Made Mercedes In Germany. Very Proud Of That!!! — Performance Is great. Handles Awesom. Faster Than Alot Of V8's Ive Owned. The Only Thing The Car Ever Needed Was Spark Plugs. The Interior Is Near Perfect In This Car. The Exterior Is In Good Condition But Could Use A Good Cleaning . It Gets Great Gas Mileage 28MPG city, And 32 Highway. Its A Great Car To Drive.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Everything.. Its A Mercedes

Cons: People Hate On It Because Its A 1998. ;)

A Gold Mine For The Future — blistering acceleration and superb handling under slow high speeds and braking........a monster in disguise. wonderfull two tone leather and very solid build in and out. maintainance isnt too cheap but remeber its a merc fuel is abit dear too but then again your at a 100 mile under ten seconds with torque to spare. A car to drive b4 you hang up your gloves!!!!!

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

Pros: A rude awakening

Cons: none really a cult classic. not for lil boys or girls!!

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: Fuel economy in a luxury car, sporty handling.

Cons: Higher than normal maintenance. ( 6.5 qts of sythetic motor oil)
