Mercedes-Benz C220 Problems

Insulation Degrades on Engine Wiring Harness and Leaves Conductors Exposed

The engine wiring can degrade because the insulating material falls off leaving the bare wire exposed. This can cause many problems depending on which wires are exposed and what they touch.

Interior Wood Trim/Dash Pads Crack Due to Age and Sun Exposure

The interior wood trim and dash pad are likely to crack due to age and sun exposure.

Shifter Lever Bushings May Break Causing Loose Feel/Noise

The bushings for the shifter lever wear out to the point where they break and fall out. This causes excessive movement (loose feel) in the shifter lever and a clanging-type noise when changing gears.

Mercedes-Benz C220 Reviews

My gas gage is not registering,it goes up and down even if the tank is full of gas. What is causing this problem.
I bought this car used 3 months ago with 70k original miles. It is beautiful, and rides and drives like a dream. It averages about 26mpg. I am very happy with it so far.
The C220 is ok
