I don't have emotional ties to this car, but I don't have a lot to spend either ($5000 budget). I want something similar. Should I risk buying a used with lesser miles ($3500-$5000) not knowing the history of the car or do I replace the tranny and keep the one I have. Advise welcome
Thanks

Everyone saying that mercedez is awful to fix, cause so expensive. Anyone experience this problem with their car.

What should my temperature gage always be at? Currently it stays at 81-82 then turn on air condition it goes up to about 88. Is this normal?

I am contemplating taking this car to the Rockies Dec-April instead of 4x4 jeep GC and am wondering if it will be OK

How do I fix this problem?

I have a 1994 Mercedes Benz c280. Sometimes engine won't turn over. Is this electrical?

also fuel injectors, 1,4

Bought this used car and have had the hood pop up on me while driving, many times now. It does not happen all the time. Yesterday I had my 74 yr. old mom with me on a trip to Miami and it happened 3 times on the expressway at 75 MPH. Now it may not happen again for days or whenever.. That is what is so scary. It seems that there is no cause for it to release, and it is being securely closed after every incident.

& Electrical socket, checked and tested all solenoids, replaced filter and fluid. Just need codes cleared. Dealer wants over $600.00 to clear faults!!! I laughed. Does anyone know where I can get a compatible Mercedes scan tool to erase codes on Transmission Control Unit. OBD II no good for this.

I have a 96 c280 the instrument cluster has gone out had it fix broke again can this be a problem with fuel sending unit?

AC Compressor isn't coming on no voltage to it beforehand had it replaced along with the refrigerant temp sensor and the pressure sensor. The codes I'm receiving are: 230, 232, 233, 421, 422. Checked all fuses as well and the auto light stays on when attempting to run the ac. Could the instrument cluster cause these problems with climate control?

car has not been started in two years. Put in a new batterey but no power to any systtem not even lights. Fuse problem? battery is good

Shops have said compressor is working and has refregerant.

for several years the center vents puch no air.

Trunk button near power windows, the key itself, or the remote on the key, wont open trunk. Nor can I lock the doors. Works fine in the ignition to start the car.

by a reputable garage SEVERAL times over the past few years. They work for a while and then sputter and stop. This will be our 4th relay replacement. Is this normal?

My power seats and windshield washers won't work. What fuse? 2006, 280C

I hit a curb and the piece that protects the body from road dirt and water came off. It's the shape of the wheel well and made of a kind of plastic I think.

its shows engine light and we just finish rebuilding it and the engine is vibrating

1) The A/C is tripping off and on. It comes on for like 20secs and then trip off for more 4mins or longer. At the time it stops cooling, the fan blows well but not cold. What could be wrong with the A/C system?
2) There is temperature sign (like the symbol of a thermometer) that comes on intermitently. It comes on and goes like every 2mins. But the engine temperature indicator does not show any overheating. The indicator is slightly above 80deg Celsius when the thermometer sign comes on and then the temperature indicator drops slightly below 80deg Celsius when the thermometr symbol is off. I don't understand the problem that this sign represents.
3) Again the fan comes on once the car engine starts or even just when you turn the ignition. The fan blows at full speed and very noisy. Is this normal? I thought the fan is supposed to come on after some minutes of the engine running and then trips intermitently depending on engine temperature.
Please tell me what is wrong with this car as it is a fairly used car that i just bought.
