my first mercedes ;)

hey my name is Geoff and im from the cold dreary town of canton ohio

i recently traded in my good old '94 pontiac grand am for my '99 c230 kompressor (with 85k miles )

this is my first mercedes (as im only 24 and this is only my 3rd car lol) and from what ive been told this is a good/ok model to start with and it should give me many fun years filled with expensive oil changes and speeding tickets.

one of my many questions/concerns is that, is this a solid model???

ive heard yes simply becuase its a mercedes...
and no because its supercharged and may prove to be problematic after 100k miles...
and no becuase this is ohio and it snows alot (which i noticed the terrible job the previous owner did at covering up the rust spots under neath the quarter panel. but other than the quarter panel theres no other rust spots )

all in all i'd have to say im extremely happy with this car but i have noticed a few random problems with various electrical componants that stop working for a day ( like the mono wiper and moonroof), some slips in the transmission when down shifting and rattleing when i let off the accelerator (all of which are covered under my extended 3 year warranty)

but as that im new here i would love to hear what you all have to say!
