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!!
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.

I have just purchased two weeks ago a slightly used 2005 C180K automatic.
Excellent car, quiet, refined, strong engine.
Only problem is petrol consumption is quite high, especially in the city.
Any others with that problem?
Order a brochure, find your nearest dealer or book a test drive
Owned for 1 year, as family runabout Pros good size, general build quality, powershift gearbox, good to drive, low costs Cons handling slighly…
Had this car for 90k from new. A 56 plate. In over 2,000,000 miles driven this one has broken down the most of any car I have had. DO NOT get a 2.0…
