Traded my 01,Lexus Is300 for the 240 6-speed... Car had 77,000 miles on it I've put brakes n rotors on it and a Ac compressor the first year I had it. So far it's been 4 months since n No problems car now has 89,000 on it. No lights on but I Tried to trade it in and was Low balled at 1800 by 3dealers. Guess it's resale value is garbage I thought I would at least be off 4k..

Iv. Had my 2002 c240 for 2years and absolutely love problems I couldnt easily fix and the merc techs are super helpful .all in all. Love it and no regrets what so ever love it
Car had 46,000, garage kept, washed every week in winter to get salt off. Around the bottom of the door is RUST!!! Body shopped informed me that the guards around the doors do not allow the water to drain off and sits there thus causing the rust. Does Benz rustproof their cars? NOT HAPPY!!!!
Bought this car brand new, and did every recommended service. Had typical MZB problems with brakes, lots of dust and pads wearing out in the front. Had some issues with engine check light. Had problems with electric windows. Motor mounts had to be replaced at 5 years. Developed holes in the pleather portion of the front seats. Front cup holder was poorly designed, replaced it twice before giving up. Began having problems with oil smell coming into cab with only 68000 miles. Decided it wasn't worth putting any more money into the car and traded it in Nov. 2010.
Bought this car in New Zealand in 2006 as an Import from Singapore. Car had done 30Km from memory. Firstly the fuel pump dies. Fuel leaking all over the ground. Repairer fixes for around $1000. Blames it on the high humidity in Singapore. Says he has many issues with cars from Singapore. Next the brake pad on the back left parts company from the brake shoe. Scores the rotor disk. Another $1000. Again blames humidity in Singapore. all through this time there is s smell in the car that is attributed to decomposing plant material from Singapore that has got down the 'intake'. Next thing to go wrong is the passenger side front seatbelt. Wont work properly and cannot get a warrant of Fitness. $500 plus fitting. Next thing to go wrong a year later is the SRS light comes on on the dash. Repairer can't reset. New ECU required. Another $1200 plus fitting down the drain. This car sucks !!
Contant problems with door seals, passenger side door is showing corrosion and rust, turn signal lights short out, arm rest delaminated, passenger seat module has a short, phone system has a short, steering column has a short, brake wear is excessive. All this after only 70000 miles! This car is over rated and over priced for what you get.
bought 2002 c240 in 2007, had only 25,000 miles on it. Now has 68,000. I am told it now needs new tranny just after i had the rear main seal leak fixed and position crank shaft sensor replaced. Transmission had to be taken out to fix rear main seal. Funny 4 months later now i need a new transmission. NOT HAPPY!!!! hate the care, just want to fix it so i can sell it . Never again will i buy another mb. piece of junk, would have been better off keeping my 1994 honda that had 160,000 miles on it. I have spent thousands on this car already and am at my whits end.
I love my car. I bought it used from a friend and plan to run it until it dies of really old age. It handles well, runs well. I am getting ready to have some needed maintenance done soon. It is a great car but, when I first got it I went to So Cal to see a friend, 15hours at 70+ mph and 1000 miles. The drivers seat is a little too stiff for me. I have a really bad back so I bought a seat cover that has a built in tension for the lumbar spine and a seat with fans. This made the drive very comfortable. I am thinking about getting an AMG package retrofitted. I took out the MB radio and placed a Kenwood with Blue Tooth, USB support, and HD radio. Next I will replace the factory speakers. They are Bose and I have never been a great fan of their speakers except for the 301 series III I have in my sound system at home. I had a decked out Ford Taurus, a 5 star rated car, which I loved but at about 100,000 miles it started having major problems. I got the MB at 103,000 and it is tight and takes the mountains in Oregon and back roads with such precision I have to be careful of over steer, something I had to do for the Taurus. The turning radius is so small I can get in tight spot easily. It is not as wide as the Taurus but is not really a compact car. I can fit in most parking spots with ease. I will never have an other brand of car.
