New to Forum and First Time Benz Owner! 1996 C280

Hello fellow Benz owners...

So I recently got into an accident that wrote off my Volvo

However, has given me an opportunity to buy a benz!

So that's pretty cool... I think I got a good deal on a 96 C280... picked it up locally for $2000 from a friend. He's a mechanic and this was his car. He wanted to upgrade to an SUV or something... looking around craigslist and such I noticed these go for around 4-5k as well...

Soooo I was pretty exited about it... I see some members however have had issues with their C280... and C-Class cars in general...

Regardless - it's a temporary car... will drive it till it blows up on me and then maybe I'll upgrade to a newer Benz... or hopefully it will run for the next ten years *knock on wood*


Thought I'd drop in some hellos!

Mercedes aren't for people who want to have one, it's for people who can have one.
