2007 Mercedes-Benz C230 Problems

Dead Battery Due to Failed Seat Control Module

A dead battery can be caused by a faulty seat control module that does not properly shut down.  Spilling liquids on the front seats can cause these modules to fail.

Camshaft Adjuster Solenoid Failure

The camshaft adjuster solenoid (which is related to the variable valve timing system) may fail or timing chain/balance shaft components may wear, resulting in illumination of the Check Engine Light and various drivability issues. Mercedes-Benz has released a service bulletin outlining specific repair instructions depending on fault codes stored.

Wire Connector on Transmission May Leak Fluid and Damage Control Module

The electrical connector at the automatic transmission may leak fluid. Over time leaking fluid could migrate through the wiring harness and damage the transmission control module. If that happens a new harness and control module may be necessary to correct the problem.

2007 Mercedes-Benz C230 Reviews

Bought my Mercedes in 2014, I didn't have it a month and transmission had to be replaced, the alternator, and now brake pads have to be replaced. This car is very expensive to have and I don't recommend anyone buying one because of the expense. I would suggest a Hyandi nice and dependable cars. be careful of the dealerships selling these cars nothing but CROOKS!!!
I bought my MB C230 2007 in 2010 with 26000 on it, shortly after the warranty expired and things started breaking down one after another. First fuel pump, second transmission problems (it started getting stuck on gear while driving and wouldn't shift up or down), third camshaft sensor, solenoid magnet, brakes and rotors needed to be replaced on same time. The labor is very expensive in MB deale...
I purchase this car April 2013 w/ 59,000 miles on it. Just two weeks ago my camshafts, fuel pump, and alternator went it. Talking about putting $3,000 down on a car to turn around and shell out $2,000 to get it back running again. This is BS and I'll never purchase another again, new and used. >:0
