2007 Mercedes-Benz C230 Problems

Miscellaneous -- Verified

Inside grab handles, the upholstery on the center console cover, and door trim panels can delaminate. Most commonly replacement of the affected part is necessary.

Engine -- Verified

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.

Drive Train -- Verified

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.

Brakes -- Verified

The brakes may begin to squeak at about the 50 percent wear point. This is due to the size and material used for the brake pads and rotors.  The brake rotor surfaces become uneven, causing a lip to form at the outer edge. This will generally require replacement of the rotors when the pads are worn (pad life varies depending on driving style and terrain).

Drive Train -- Verified

A vibration felt through the center floor of the vehicle can be caused by cracked and/or shredded driveshaft flex discs, resulting in excessive driveshaft movement. If not repaired, damage to the driveshaft center support bearing, transmission, or differential can occur.

2007 Mercedes-Benz C230 Reviews

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

MB's suck. After being given an 06 C230 from a passing grandmother, I've learned that terrible. this car has 50,000 miles on it and it is crazy the things that it has needed and how much it cost. I've since upgraded to a four door 4x4 Ford F150 with an ecoboost twin turbo V6 that makes 400hp and the ability to tow 11,000 lbs while still getting the same MPG as the MB. If anyone walked up and handed me the keys to their MB, I'd laugh and tell them no thanks.

I always wanted a Mercedes till I owned one. They are Way over rated. I cant keep brakes and rotors on mine. I have owned my first and last Mercedes. They are way to expensive to repair. If they were not such a "yuppie" status symbol, no one would own one.
