Want to know everything there is to know about this car?

  • Summary

    2 out of 5 2.0

    What does this car say about you?

    I should have bought a BMW 3-series.

    What do your friends / family / neighbours think of the car?

    They think it's funny how much I hate it.

    Would you buy this car again and why?

    Never. An E250cdi replacement car we had when the C-class was being repaired (again) was a nice motor though - the engine was surprisingly much smoother than the C220.

    What are you likely to buy next?

    5-series BMW

    What was the dealer like?

  • Driving it

    2 out of 5 2.0

    What's it like to drive?

    The car is hardly 'sporty'. The engine is rough and unrefined, albeit relatively powerful. Brakes are unspectacular. Steering wheel is the size of a truck's and made of hard plastic. It's not in the same league as a BMW 320d (a previous car we've owned)

    What's it like to park?

    Parking sensors work well

  • Living with it

    1 out of 5 1.0

    Have you had any problems with the car?

    The diesel injectors have failed multiple times. Once this resulted in the car cutting out upon joining a motorway. Last time the car broke down it had just been 'repaired' by the Mercedes main dealer that morning! A C180 courtesy car I was given had dodgy brakes too, they only worked intermittently!

    What's most practical about your car?

    It's got 4 doors

    Favourite gadget, option or accessory?

    COMAND system is good, but you can't use a full postcode.
