considering a 4 yr old c230 komp. please help
Hi folks, I seriously thinking of a c230 coupe for my wife early next season. she loves the car, but is used to an AWD suv in the snow, so I have a couple of concerns.
I have two questions, being new to MB. Assuming a decent car, with low mileage, what sort of maintenance expense should I be looking at on average? I know there are a few weak spots, is there anything that really stands out?
Also, I'm more concerned about winter traction. I've heard mercedes traction control is excellent, so with good snow tires, are they fairly capable? Shes a good driver, I just worry about her in our northern winters.
any help is really appreciated.
