I own an 06 C230, bought it used and it's been an awesome car. Door handles, who cares, great car for what I paid 2 years ago with 60k on it. I have a friend with an 07 and he's been plagued with expensive problems, mainly because he tries to work on it himself, then he's calling to get it in my shop. Let's use this common sense, it's a luxury car no matter what, you have to treat it as such, pampered at times, driven hard others. But above all else, TAKE CARE OF IT!!! Cheap begets trouble with maint and parts, if you aren't ready for the expense of a repair, maybe it's not the right car for you. Yet again, I'm not out a single repair in 2 years, I changed the brakes because I wanted to, yes I upgraded from the factory pads, and yes it gets rotors every time, a nice oil service with euro 5w40 synthetic every 4-5k.. this is what we signed up for, and if it breaks well... you have to pay to play. Besides the other German cars really like attention too often, dog your C and so will it. It's worth the investment to buy to good parts and have someone that understands the vehicle working on it. The techs here are trying to help, you're giving them nothing to go off of and some of these comments tell me that you should DEFINATELY NOT own a car like this, and most certainly not try to work on it. No picking, just saying.. you bought a Benz, suck it up, and find a shop you trust or someone you trust that won't walk you through a valley of lies because you have a hood ornament. That's what I do for my customers, and that's why I love this car, it's a love affair, it's family, and yet it's still a car. Enjoy your silver star, but treat her right, she'll return the favor.
