2002 Mercedes-Benz C230 Reviews

great drive but lord the electrical stuff is worthy of a suzuki.mercedes should really address this issue.
I regret purchasing this car every time I get in it! While it's still a great drive, everything else about it seriously disappoints. My car has been constantly plagued with electrical problems, and all sorts of little things constantly breaking. I can't wait 'till it's either totalled, or I can get rid of the stupid thing
