Problem with my 2008 C300

Let me start out by saying I'm new to this site. I'm not sure I'm posting this in the right place, but please help me if you can or direct me to the right place. Thank you.

Ok, I have a 2008 C300 with about 56,000 miles on it. I am the only owner and have taken good care or the car in terms of servicing it, etc. Last friday when I went to start it. It turned on then 2-3 seconds later turned off. There are no lights on indicating there is a problem. I waited about 2 minutes tried to start it again and it started with no problem. Today it did the same thing. But it took over 5 times of me trying to start it before it started up and stayed running. Warranty is up so I can't take it to the dealer. Please help. If over info is needed please ask.

The correct forum for your car is;
W204 C-Class - - Mercedes-Benz Discussion Forum

With the 272 engine the most common cause of this type of symptom is the crankshaft position sensor, easy to replace and not expensive.
