#66 of 125 I Love my C230, but.................
Jul 11, 2002 (7:48 am)
I've purchased my new 2002 C230 Kompressor in late February. A week after I'm purchased this wonderful ride - it shut down on the highway. In between I had a speaker repaired that was blown out, an air vent was off line and on 2 separate occasions, my car has again been in the repair shop for additional service, because the car has shut down 2 more times. Did I get a lemon or what? I'm repeatly spoken with the Regional Manager, Service Manager and an service representative of EuroMotorcars, along with the guy who sold me the car. I was told that my car was repaired (yada, yada, yada). They basically spoke to me in a terminology that was unfamiliar to me. I've heard everything, but what was the actual cause of my car shutting down. Then I had repeat signs of BAS and ESP light up on my dashboard. At this time, I'm afraid to ride my car, because of my safety. I've called everyone pertaining to this matter. I love the car, but the techncians for Mecedes-Benz should be trained on the new models and what their functions are. I'm requesting a new vehicle, because of my safety reasons. I've began writing letters to the President of Mercedes-Benz and the other necessary channels that cause for me to file an Legal compliant.

Sorry to hear that. I hope that you can get some satisfaction out of the dealership that sold you the car. Please keep me posted, I'm interested to hear how they resolve your complaint.

Hi there, I'm a proud owner of a new C200 Kompressor, of which was delivered to me about a month ago. I'd just installed the 'chrome' frame onto both the headlight and tail-light. Although fitment for the headlight looks superb, the tail-light doesn't seem to fit as well (marginally smaller). Wondering if anyone has the same problem. Regds.

Hello from Atlanta, Georgia,
Is the chrome frame something that is added-on to the car after buying it? I have not seen that over here in the United States.

The chrome frames are optional item and they were fitted after I've got the car. I've seen advertisement on these frames in some UK magazines.

Yhk .... This is Hocky1 from Melbourne, Australia. Can only own a C180, boh lwee lah! Its a 1994 model and still running strong. I like the older shape of Benz like my C180. The new shape you have to get used to. Would appreciate if you could reply to Johnshtanhotmail.com for further discussions on cars, business, current affairs in our homeland!

greetings, i have been lurking here for about a month looking for info on 280c. my 300e was totaled this summer, and have been looking for a replacement since. it took me quite a while to convince myself that i would be happy in a "C" class car.
well, the good news is this: i just picked up a beautiful 95 silver/grey 280 that i found thru ebay in st louis. i drove the car home to atlanta over 600 miles, and arrived tired but with a huge smile from the cars performance and ride quality.
the 280 far exceeded my expectations in all aspects. it rides/drives GREAT! it has 80% MXV4's that are smoother than any of my previous experience. the car was a dream at 85-95 mph. the I-6 engine has plenty of power and the 4-sp shifts flawlessly.
only a couple of items on my wish lish missing: MOONroof (only steel), heated seats, trunk release on console. i will eventually switch to 16in wheels (and will happily spend the $ for the mxv4 if they continue the present ride quality)
i got a great deal on the car that was well worth the trip. i spent $8800 drive out. the car is in great condition and beautiful, and in my initial trip, i could not be more pleased with the 280. i was very skeptical on the "C", but this car exceeds my 300e in every way i can think of except size.
thanks for all of your posts and all the info. i look forward to being an active participant here in the future.
happy motoring. - benton
