Pros: As long has you have it warranty things are fine.

Overall review: Thi car is great as long has its covered under the extended warranty of regular warranty. But after that its major exspensive. Every 10,000 miles has to be serviced about $500.00

A German Tank! by JJ in the Atl on 11/16/2010. Trim: 1999 Mercedes-Benz C280, Owned 4 years.

Mercedes Rust Bucket by An MSN Autos Consumer on 08/22/2006. Trim: 1999 Mercedes-Benz C230 Kompressor, Owned 6 years.
Pros: The overall driving feel/performance
Cons: Rusting away very aggressively. Car is only 7 years old and almost every exterior panel has a lot of rusting, especially on the seems. Taken well care of. Washed frequently. Few friends own same car and also are experiencing extinsive rusting. Mercedes Benz refused to acknowledge the problem. Their claim is that the car is out of warranty. It is clear to me now why this company has the worst rust protection warranty (4 years). Two other major German car companies offer a 12 year warranty on rust.
Overall review: For a car this expensive, I was hoping to get at least 10 years out of it. It looks older than it should at 5 years and now at 7 years I am strongly concidering getting rid of it well below market value. No one wants it with this rust and no respectible body shop wants to repair it. There claim is that it is not reparable and the sheet metal needs to be replaced. The is cost prohibitive.
