2002 c240 reliability

Hi I am interested in purchasing my first mercedes, a 2002 c240 with 55k miles...How reliable are they? anything that I should look for when looking at the car? Are 2002 c240's known to have anything wrong with them?

You are considering what Daimler calls a W203 and there is a dedicated forum here for those. Starting on the home page, scroll down from this general forum and look for it in the sedans section. Your odds of capturing the attention of some actual owners are much greater there. Plus they might have some stickys that answer your questions or you can search just that one forum for relevant threads or posts. Good luck and welcome to BW.

You are best to avoid it by at least 10 feet. It is a pile of low quality repair prone junk on wheels. Everything from the the build quality to the reliability was poor (on a good day). Costs were cut at every corner to save money, as it was built during one of the worst years for the company. This is a car that will make you never want to own a Mercedes again. You can do MUCH better for your money.
