1999 Mercedes-Benz C280Visitor, Clovis, CA, November 30, 2010 13:59I got this car new and have never sorry. I love it and after warranty expired I cannot think of any major repairs I have had to make--just the usual maintenance upkeep. Love my little car and it is the most comfortable car to drive on long trips.
1999 Mercedes-Benz C280200sam, El Cajon, CA, November 22, 2010 21:52How do you spell B-U-L-L-E-T-P-R-O-O-F ??? Never had a better car and believe me I have had many. At 215,000 miles (and had it since 30,000) and it has never put a foot wrong. Economical, reliable, comfortable, really well-built inside and out. Great engine. Here is the COMPLETE list of non-routine repairs we have made to it: - Aircon compressor - 02 sensor (maybe 2) - Water pump - Some auto transmission issue during the warranty. The only criticisms: The not so great radio reception and the electrical style accelerator linkage that makes a different feel to mechanical type. Other MB's have been great too but this beats those and the MANY other cars we have had.Enthusiast
1999 Mercedes-Benz C280Visitor, Bloomington, IL, July 02, 2010 09:41Don't listen to wannabe mercedes owners, this car is cheaper to maintain than most american or jap cars. The down time is so minimal you forget going to mechanic. If you have common sense a bit of desire to fix it and 20 bucks to get an alldata.com online subscription you are set. I almost forgot try to stay away of dealers with the exception of the diagnostic and for that I highly recommend going to dealer. in 6 years I put 90k miles on my C280 Sport and spent almost 2000$ all together (minus tires and oil change but those are common sense). The MPG hwy is 29 and city 23. I couldn't ask for more from any car, anyway ..if you want a good TV set get a Jap one if you want a real car get a German one ...and if you want a great burger go to Wendy's.
1999 Mercedes-Benz C280Visitor, Dallas, TX, April 27, 2010 15:15Great Car, Milleage, Driving, But Expensive to keep it Like a Brand New. IF YOU RICH WANNABE DON'T BUY IT!!! It will cost your salary.
1999 Mercedes-Benz C280Visitor, Wilmington, DE, March 27, 2010 22:29I am very disappointed with Mercedes-Benz, my clear coat and the bumper is peeling all over the car. I called the dealer in Wilmington De, they informed me that the paint was under warranty for only one year. They talked to me like I was nothing because the car is a 1999, i understood when i purcahsed this car that Mercedes would stand behind their cars. Not this time, and I will never go back. It will cost me $5k to get this car painted, I as a single woman who invested in what I thought was a safe and well built car is now driving around in a MERCEDES with PAINT PEELING front and back. the seats work when they want to , the gas hand drops when it wants to and the side panel seems to be rusting. When i take my car to body shops they ask if the car has been in a wreck and if Mercedes will honor the paint warranty. I'm disappointed and i will never purchase another mercedes or recommend the cars to anyone. They are only good to lease!!!
1999 Mercedes-Benz C280Dneka90020, Los Angeles, CA, November 22, 2009 18:27I absolutely love this car ~ i have had it for about 5 years and can say that its a very reliable car. Very expensive to fix things but all in all its definitely worth it.Enthusiast
