Smile New MB Owner!


My name is hayden (username redskins1) & I recently joined this users' group. I just bought a 2003 MB C-230 Sport Sedan w/70,000 miles. I had bought my wife a 2003 C-240 as a surprise Christmas present & based on her enjoyment with her car, bought myself one that is somewhat similar.
As a new C-230 owner, I would appreciate your insight as to the following:

Brand of gasoline to use;
What type of extended warranty, if any, is recommended;
What problem areas should I watch out for;
What brand of fully synthetic oil is best;

Along with purchasing the car, I also bought a 6-month power-train warranty and will entend this based, in part, on feedback you provide me here.
Thanks in advance to your assistance and nuturing for a NEWBI MB owner!

Welcome aboard and congratulations.

Any brand of gas is ok as long as its 91 octane or more
Mercedes recommends mobil 1 full synthetic

look into the W203 area W203 C-Class - - Mercedes-Benz Discussion Forum for more info on your cars.
