Smile Greetings

Hello! Always was interested in the Benz line and finally got one. A 1995 C220. Can anyone give me some common problems to watch for. I bought it for my freshmen child just starting college and would like to make sure I can understand any early warning symptoms of breakdowns before they occur.

BTW, does anyone have an operator's manual so she can get familiarized.

Thanks.

Ray

Hi Ray, what mileage does the car have?

OK, if the transmission fluid and filter have not been changed before you got the car then make it your first priority.

Fluid should be changed at approx 80k.
