How reliable are they

Having just commented on how tough volvos were, what about say benz after 1996?My 94e320 is my 1st benz and oh yes i can see the quality, the solid thump when i close the doors.But my wife wants a new C class, are they still built w/the same quality/reliability/value as say mine.Can we get 225k on a C class if its well maintained.

Buy new with a warranty and before it expires extend the warranty, will save you more than the cost of the warranty. 200k + is achievable if serviced regularly and treated well. I have an E Class in the workshop which needs a new rack and the balance shaft is shot, but the car has over 300k on the clock and is still a good car.
