C220 or C270

Hi all,

This is my first post outside of the V-Class section so please be nice to me.

I am currently a proud Vito and V-Class owner but I am slowly falling out of love with my V230, It seems no matter what I fix something else goes wrong so now it is time to change.

I have been looking at replacing my v230 for a C-Class estate around an 04 / 05 reg facelift model but I would like to know which is best to go for in regards to reliability and economy, Do either of the C220 or C270 have the same injector problems as the Vito? and are there any other common problems with them.


Sammy

People are always nice here


do u mean 220 cdi vs 270 cdi right? i don't know much about 220 but seems to be nice and economical car. my friend had 2002 270 cdi estate for 3 years and bought it with arround 130k miles on. covered arround 25k and only one thing which turn bad was alternator but also he said that in future i would prefer 220 instead because is cheaper to run(not always). different on performance really you could see only on german autobahn.
if u r looking on performance 270 is much more powerful but if anything goes wrong it will cost more obviously. 220 better on diesel either.
hard to say honest mate but if i was you i'd rather go for 220cdi with avantgarde trim, auto, leather and all bits and pieces. it will be hard to find but possible in uk.

Hello.
I have a 2004 270 cdi and I would recommend it everybody. Powerful, economical for its size(5.9l/100km) and hasn't given me one problem in nearly 62 000miles.
