Sure it is a pretty car but will you buy it on looks alone?Hey guys I've been looking at cars lately for a nice luxury like daily driver and was checking out the merc c240. I'm seeing some higher mileage ones (70k+) in the low teens which isn't to bad and it's a pretty nice looking car. How's the reliability of these things? With it coming in on 100k miles am I going to have alot of problems with one making me spend out the ass on fixing it? Give your impressions and opinions on them. Thanks
get a c32. they are awesome. im an mercedes benz tech. i wont lie these cars have a fair share of problems like any other brand. Just REMEMBER just because its a 30,000$ car for 10,000$ that parts are for a 30,000$ car. people with 190,000$ sl65's seem to forget that : ( . And the water cooled alternators are not cheap or the labor they pay me to install them. C240's do seem to hold up quite well though, but be sure to have a good mb tech look over the car first. 50% of cars a see everyday need atleast 500$ in suspension work, and 20% of them will buy it the others care about popping and thunking noises and a loose steering feel.
