"I bought this car with 28,000 miles on it and now have 159,000. I love it repair costs for me have been low. I have it serviced at a Mercedes dealership and required maintanence is ever 12,000 miles not ever 3,000 miles and an A service runs $150.00 and a B service runs me $300.00. I love it it is convienent, fast, super reliable and very whitty.
I will buy another for sure!!!"
"I have had this C230 Kompressor since new in August, 1999. It is truly an amazing car. In the city it is highly maneuverable and can make a U-turn in a single pass on a a side street. On the highway it is quiet, fast and gets about 32mpg. Around town, the mileage is half that. The maintenance cost is very high - around $350 for the A service and around $550 for the B service. I had to replace a lug bolt for one of the tires and MB charged me $7! I bought an extended warranty and I still have about a year left on it. Once it hits the out of warranty mark, I will sell it. Although it is a great car, I don't think I will ever buy another one due to the extremely high cost of ownership."
