    My car

    I have owned this from 55 k to 120k miles and have found it to be very reliable, and also cheap to maintain, using the warranty until end of year 3, and an accredited garage to do everything else. New discs at 60k, track rod ends at 80k, DPF light came on at 110k. Tyres tend to wear in the middle on the rear, and the edges on the front, despite the pressures being correct. Fuel economy excellent with 50mpg on a run with BP ultimate (and yes it does make a difference)Selling now but would entertain another

    My car

    I am really happy with my purchase - made 21st July 08. I had tried SAAB to see if they would take my "special" SAAB they sold to me - disgusted with their lack of interest. Tried Audi similar story. My Mercedes which I bought from the local dealer in Kings Lynn who gave me a good price for my SAAB has shown itself to be an outstanding motor - very pleased. Only wish I had bought one instead (FEB 07) of the SAAB.I think the C Class is a very attractive shape and gets many admiring glances. Auto gearbox is a dream. Acceleration is fine even though only a 1800cc engine. Comfortable to drive Would recommnend one to anyone!!

    My car

    I have owned by C320 avantgarde auto for a while now, and have had 1 problem with it. It drives like a dream, its smooth quie and so comfortable on long trips, I often drive to the lake district from norfolk. The amount of fuel i use is not as bad as i thought it was going to be.

    The problem i had with my c class is that the battery kept draining over night, the main dealer said i needed a new battery and that would sort the problem, so i agreed at a cost of £200, the next morning i had a flat battery again, phoned the main dealer who were rude and didnt seem to want to know. So i conacted a specialist who came to my house and picked the car up, he found the problem within a few hours, the sat nav would turn itself on overnight and draining the battery, the sat nav was sent off for a repair and working perfect now and was a lot cheaper then going to the main dealer.

    I will be buying another 1 for the other half in a few months time.
