Hello from New Zealand


Hello to all of you out there I have just bought my first Mercedes at the ripe old age of 48. I have wanted to own a Merc ever since I was little growing up in Glasgow. I still cant quite believe that it is mine. I looked for a long time and finally found a 1997 C200 which is in excellent condition and I got it for a very good price. Over the years I have owned many cars but this surely has to be the best. I would like to hear from anyone who has the same model and give me any help in keeping it running well. It is my everyday car and I would like to keep it for a long time

Hi tvc15,

I am also from NZ and I also bought my first Merc which is the same model as yours. So far, it has been a really nice car. When I bought it, it had a jerking problem when shifting from 1st to 2nd gear. Luckily, it was not a trans problem, I just had to change the ATF and now it is running smoothly. Another problem I have is the aircon, whick I dont worrhy about at the moment because it doesnt bother me not to have ac.
