2008 Mercedes-Benz C300 Problems
A vibration felt through the center floor of the vehicle can be caused by driveshaft flex discs, which crack and shred, causing excessive driveshaft movement. Not repairing these can cause damage to the driveshaft center support bearing, or, in the worst case scenario, damage to the transmission or differential.
Due to the size and material used on the brakes of these vehicles, the brakes may start to squeak around the 50 percent wear point. The brake rotor surfaces become uneven, causing a lip to form at the outer edge of the rotor. Because of this, the rotors are usually replaced when the pads are worn (pad life varies depending on driving style and terrain).
It is not uncommon to encounter premature failure of the anti-lock brake system (ABS) modulator assembly due to dirty brake fluid. Our technicians recommend flushing the brake fluid every two years in order to help prevent this problem.
2008 Mercedes-Benz C300 Questions
I have a 2008 C 300
I have been having a problem with my belt. Is this common? Is there a particular belt that has to be used only for Mercedes? Is it ok to have it replaced by another shop instead of going to the dealership to have it replaced? Thank you
I recently paid MB 1,600 to repair my vehicle. I parked the car and went back to drive it, but when I put the key in the ignition it did nothing.Everything else seem to work, except for the locks and windows.
brake lights stays on when driving

2008 Mercedes-Benz C300 Reviews
Wonderful car not one single problem. All I have done is the regular maintenace.
The Mercedes C300 is a solid, comfortable, and capable car. Hate the tire pressure monitor, but only because it's accurate. I have had problems with the lights that I shouldn't, so that's not great reliability for a new car. The interior trim does look and feel cheap in places, and I'm not convinced it's well made.
A great driving car and dependable, initially had trouble with Sirius Sat reception, but it was repaired by installing a new sat module, attenae. I also installed all season tires by Michelin rather than the stock summer continentals
