2005 Mercedes-Benz C320 Problems

A repetitive clicking noise from behind the center area of the dash panel is usually caused by a broken stepper motor actuating arm. The actuating arm controls the direction of air flow in the climate control system. Disassembly of the center console will be required to access and change the broken arm with the updated, reinforced part.

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.

The engine may develop a stalling and/or no start condition due to a failed crankshaft position sensor.

2005 Mercedes-Benz C320 Reviews

At 48000 miles an oil leak showed up on the right side of the engine. At 58000 miles this message showed up "engine oil sensor malfunction, go to workshop". $611 to fix and was not given any reason why it broke. Inside passenger side grab handle just broke, very cheap workmanship. Be careful when you park because front spoiler will be damaged by a parking lot's wheel stopper. Very low front.
