"My car has low mileages and my car fax is outstanding. I service my car when it's time and never have missed a service date. The value u are quoting is very low for my car."

"I've owned the '95 C-280 since '97. Good ride; great for around town and long road trips. Only 4 major repairs over the years and I've never been left stranded. Routine maintenance and wear items are to be expected. A great reliable car for a daughter, or son heading off to school. In the unfortunate event of an accident the Mercedes is the best protection you can have in a passenger car."

"Picked up this car on a shadey car lot, I did drive it to much as the ex mainly drove it. We only replaced the oil pump, we are the 2nd owners of this car. I'd love to own a 2015 benz!"

"I purchased this car from an elderly couple. The car is in excellent condition and well maintained. This car has quick acceleration and the turbo sound is music to my ear. This car is fun to drive. I've owned many BMWs in the past and this car ranks right up there with them."

"My mom bought this car brand new in 95. She handed this car down to me about 5 years ago. With minor issues (windshield wiper motor and ac/heat fan) we are still driving this car today. Great car, great gas, great room. I wish I could update the car with the new 2015 techs..... I will most likely get another 100K out of it. This car is nothing like what they make now."

"It has been a reliable car even though it was purchased used from a generic dealership.Complete Prior history unknown. in memphis by way of florida. Reliablity probably due to husband's diligence in maintaining car through reputable mercedes technicians and dealerships."
