Manually unlock the trunk/hatch with a key.

2002 Mercedes-Benz C-Class Base

The gears in the sunroof shade wore down, so now I am unable to use that feature. Cost too much to replace. My particular make happens to be rear wheel drive so forget about driving in the smallest of snowfalls. I cannot begin to tell you how many times I got stuck in the snow this winter. If mine wasn't a coupe I'd suggest all wheel drive. My back cover for my hatch broke a thing, it still works okay with a little extra effort to move it. There is also no trunk/hatch button on the key or on the driver side anywhere, so you have to manually go to the back and unlock it with a key, ridiculous. The headlight cases are plastic so the lights are dim. There is fog lights tho.

It's our first Mercedes-Benz!

2002 Mercedes-Benz C-Class Base

The maintenance can get pretty expensive, it holds like 7 or 8 quarts of full synthetic.. We've had it over a year with no real significant problems or break downs.It runs good and travels very well. We keep up with oil changes etc. So the big expensive repairs are less likely occur.

I consider my car to be very reliable

2002 Mercedes-Benz C-Class Base

First if all my car doesn't waste any gas. It lets you know when it has any malfunctions. The interior still holds up. And it is almost consider a classic. It accelerate really fast & is very stable on the road & turns. The color is gray on the exterior & gray in the interior.

Great car/bad electric system

2002 Mercedes-Benz C-Class Base

I have been having some electrical problems- Battery dies. In addition my windshield and AC don't work so it gets pretty brutal in the summer when temperature reaches over 110. Recently my radio has been turning off randomly which I believe causes my car to die out of nowhere.
