"i have owned this mercedes c230 for 5 1/2 years and never had one single major issue with it only little wear for the age and very very very easy to work on,drives excellent and handles excellent,i have never had this car at any shop only for alignments and tire balance.excellent gas mileage and looks great,i get lots of complements about it,the more custom work i do to it the better it looks"
"Car probably one of the better if not best car value MBZ made that year .Served well but like all cars that moved through time -it breaks down little by little -not major but maintenance well done and followed help this car go and drive well after almost 20 years. The only drawback from keeping this car this long is the gas -super unleaded, when parts and repair go -they go for it --cost and labor ( glad I had good honest mechanics that serviced this car all these years) ,
Now it is time to part. I have to retire you -Mercedes 2 -Not that I don't want to keep you further( even though I myself have retired) But cant afford to maintain and have you running on Super Unleaded anymore ( never fed you anything but except one time due to my absence mindedness )
Hate to give you up really -wish I have the finances to make you new once more(in and out) -you won't need much but imported items are expensive for us.
I'll hold on till I need to let you go, I think
Bonding is hard"
Pros: "Have to see car to appreciate. Its beautiful."

"I purchased the Mercedes new in 1998. We installed new inside roof and side liners. The car shows very well.
Its glossy black. Fun to drive.
We really hate to part with it. Just bought a new 2014 Mercedes."
