It was about 6 months ago when I got my current car which is a 2003 Mercedes-Benz C320, it was one of the happiest days in my life because who wouldn't like to have a luxury car such as BMW or Mercedes, for example? But anyway, the point is this Mercedes C320 has made me spend too much money on repairs during the last 6 months. I did a tune-up: +$600 , I changed the rear tires: +$500, I have done 3 oil changes: +100 each one, the driver lock wasn't working well: $250, once the car stopped working, it didn't start, I had to contract a towing service and to take it to the Mercedes dealership, cost: $650, for changing a wire which controls the power in the engine, I didn't remember well its name. What else, I did transmission maintain because it wasn't working very well: $550... oh god, too much money, every time this car fails for something, the cost is like crazy, I also changed an injector which wasn't working well, the starting was failing when I bought the car, cost: $200, etc.
I have taken my Mercedes-Benz C320 many more times to the auto shop, but I don't remember exactly how many. I just wouldn't recommend this car to anybody, avoid it. If you like a Mercedes-Benz, you better wait until you have $20k or $30k in cash so that you can buy it with less than 50k miles or, too much better, a new one. I bought mine with 65k miles, and some days after I got it, it started to fail. I just would like to think that I wasn't lucky, probably some other people have had a better experience with this Mercedes-Benz. If you have a C320 I'd love to hear what you think about it. Thanks!
By the way, I'm posting a picture in case you want to know which car I'm talking about.
