I am concerned about the reliability of electrically controlled functions. I have had problems with the auto g/box which occasionally refuses to change up after pulling away. Dealer tells me this is due to a soft ware upgrade but problem has happened again after upgrade action. Have also had an electrical problem whereby the stalk for w/screen wipers and indicators has ceased to control these items. Switching the car of and then restarting it seems to reset it until next occurrence. Dealer advises that the in column unit for this may be at fault but has asked me to report back again after clearing fault codes. The power steering is noisy with what I think is the sound of fluid porting as lock is applied. Dealer says this is normal but if so then this Merc is the first car I have owned where such a thing is normal. So to sum up, I am not impressed.

Very good, well thought out with good build quality. Reliable and safe and enjoyable to own and drive, marred only by minor but irritating intermittent electronics related problems which have never been diagnosed or rectified despite several attempts by the main (franchised) dealer. Mercedes always delegate to the dealer but have never offered to take ownership other than to offer continued support for the problems after the warranty period as they were reported early but never solved. The only reason I have remained with Mercedes is the excellent personal care received from the dealership.

I much prefer driving a classic car but I am self-employed so require something a little newer and more practical. my c class is therefore a good compromise. it has proven very reliable although it does have a full service history and drives like a new car a statement which was recently emphasised after a friend borrowed it after his 2011 vauxhall broke down. Overall, this car is costing about the same as my 2010 vauxhall astra which I sold in 2011. I do realise that a car of this age can become a money pit, yet find a good one and many years of cheap luxury motoring can be found,.

It has been excellent. the one hiccup was when the stop-start played up. the garage checked and ordered a new pump of some kind and this has sorted the problem . Petrol is the greatest running cost. I had thought about a diesel at the time of purchase, but, at the time, we had 2 cars and my annual mileage of c. 6000miles did not warrant the extra cost of a diesel. my wife has since died, and I gave her car to my son. this means the merc is the sole car and the mileage is now probably 10,000.the cost of sevicing is also rather pricey!

Only company car I've had that broke down completely, a problem with the steering lock completely disabled the car. it was fixed free of charge, and I got a replacement car. the only problem I had was that I had to leave it in the supermarket car park until the shop shut so the car could be recovered, and I couldn't get a replacement car until my car had been driven away. I can get over 50 mpg on a run on motorways, closer to 43 mpg otherwise. I can get over 600 miles from a tank.

The car has been extremely reliable since I bought it. apart from a new set of tyres, a battery and a suspension replacement under warranty it has not required anything more than normal servicing by a main dealer. Servicing is not cheap but because the frequency is determined by an on board computer which monitors the nature of the use a service is required by me only every 18 months to two years.

The only problem in 90,000 miles was injector failure - like most mb diesels in 2009. otherwise it has never needed any repairs under warranty. The servicing price is slightly high, but some other work - like resetting the headlamps for continental use is very cheap (ł15, including changing them back - alldone while you wait and the car washed both times as well!).

The C280 Sport is a lot fun to drive. The immobiliser is a pain and can lock you out. - typical of the Mercs of that time. The suspension is hard, simulating sports style. But overall gives real sense of driving a car. At 130,000 miles it has its problems but the engine runs like a dream. It will just depend how much the rest of the car holds up.
