Sturdy driving passenger car

2004 Mercedes-Benz C-Class 3.2L

It shows solid performance. It runs smoothly, and is sturdy. Acceleration is good. Engine runs strong. No major breakdowns. It seems some parts, which are not directly related to driving, can require inspection or replacement; examples are heater blowing fans and door locks.

Great Size, and family friendly

2004 Mercedes-Benz C-Class 3.2L

Great mileage, this car has held up great over the years. I've had no major problems. It's important to do regular maintenance on the car. I also love the size, it's not very compact but can comfortably fit five passengers. The size also makes it very easy to parallel park!

Great overall car but costly to fix

2004 Mercedes-Benz C-Class 3.2L

Good looking car. Great turn radius. Has had a lot of problems throughout the year which have been costly to fix. Have 290,000 miles on it. Sports package. Transmission replaced. Las if it's kind in ten specific body style. Blue tinted windows from factory
