The build of the car is wonderful. It is a hard ride, heavy, and you know you are driving a car. They do not build cars like the way they built this car. The seats are leather and is so classic. Originally, it could reach high speeds on the highway without any problems. Now, the car rattles around. I guess this is what happens with a 22 year old car. When I first bought it, it was a commuting car. Now, it breaks down so often I use it for local errands and to take my elderly parents to the local church on Sundays. Hence, this car is not really reliable. Many times as of late I've considered selling it to a collector or a high schooler who is good with cars and knows how to appreciate such a beautiful yet old car. The style is always, always in. It's very comfortable. The fuel economy i... (more)
Story
I was driving around Oakland, CA with my girlfriend after just getting some In-N-Out. We were both skipping work (clearly, in my younger days), and she was feeding me Monster Fries as we spun around.
Pros
My favorite feature about the car is it's heavy drive and classic look. It is and always will be very fashionable, it's a girl's favorite accessory! My co-workers at one point called me "The bitch with the bags and the Mercedes-Benz"
Cons
The cons is it's not reliable. It breaks down at least once a month. I'm afraid to drive it long distances.

This car was purchased for my daughter before she went to college. And I took over when she no longer needed it. Overall, it was well maintained by regular services and some changes of parts. It's been over 12 years now I still drive it weekly with no problem. I think the low mileage of my driving is one of the factors.
Story
I do not recall any fun story except a memorable one with getting traffic tickets.
Pros
Small and easy to park and drive Dependable and very few problems
Cons
It has some minor part issues such as rear lamps required frequent changes....

When I first purchased my 2004 Mercedes Benz C-240 4matic, it had 100,00 miles on the odometer. Initially, I was extremely satisfied with how well my Mercedes handled while driving on the freeway. There was very little road noise, and the car remained very stable at high speeds. When I turned on the radio, I was pleased to hear high quality sound coming from my stock speaker system. One thing I didn't like about the car was the fact that it had minor electrical problems early on in the life of the car.
Story
The best memories I had with my car, is taking it across the country to visit my family. My car really helped me to achieve a true bond with my family.
Pros
The best feature that I thought that my Mercedes had, was the all wheel drive system. I found that it helped out a lot in times of poor weather conditions. Another thing that I was pleased about was the stereo system that my Mercedes was equipped with. I was surely surprised by the quality of sound that the system gave. The stability of the car at high speeds was truly remarkable.
Cons
One of the top negative things that I found the vehicle to have is that I started experiencing some minor electrical issues early on in the life of the car. headlight went out, as well as defrosters, and seat adjusters.
