Check out www.carsurvey.org to see what reviews real owners have posted about their vehicles. I always check there before I go looking for a used car.

One of the major things owners of a w202 1995 C280 should worry about is the thing everybody hates, RUST! if you dont want it to rust, you should rust proof it every year in the fall and mostly by Krown. Sometimes maybe the antenna might stop working. you might need to do the head gasket on the car unless the previous owner already changed it, because they happen to blow on the w202's around 150,000km or above. Then there might be other little minor problems, but i dont remember at this time but if i do i will let you know.

Be careful watch out for the engine wiring harness the have a tendency of getting dry and brittle... plus they are expensive about $1500.00 to replace
