Hello from the HOT, DRY Midwest
Hello everyone. I finally actually registered after about a year of lurking.
My wife and I purchased a CPO 2007 C230 with a little over 28,000 miles on the clock on July 1, 2011. It had been my dream to own a Mercedes or BMW since high school, which is quite a number of years in the past. After looking at the prices of new and used cars we realized that for about the same price we could buy a 3 or 4 year old CPO C230 with low miles or a 2 to 3 year old Ford Fusion (or similar). The answer seemed to be a no brainer.
The car is probably the quietest and best riding car we have ever owned (compared to: 1979 Mustang, 1988 Mustang 4 cy., 1992 Mustang LX 5.0, 1998 Four Contour (what a piece of junk) and a 2004 Nissan Maxima). The only issue we have had is a head light that was holding condensation. after several phone calls and finally a trip to the deaslership they finally agreed to a good will replacement of the assembly.
Last month, with just under 12,000 miles on the odometer since purchase we had the dealership change the oil (used a $50 online coupon). I am normally a DIY type but with the $50 coupon it made the cost of having them do it about the same as doing it myself.
I have one question for anyone who can answer. I would like The VIN is WDBRF52H57E026367. thasnks in advance for the help.
