2003 Mercedes C240 4-Matic, just hit 188,000 miles had it less than a year, bought it with 135,000 miles from a hole in the wall dealer that got it from an action being the car was to old to sell as pre owned certified so it came with all service records, (except for two years missing????? where it has been neglected) so i have been maintaining since, changed all fluids from front to rear, did all service maintenance up to book standards then drove cross country back and forth 6 times in it. Absolutely love the reliability and safety of the 4-maic!
Only had to use it once and it was at 80mph swerving to avoid a deer on the highway, car was starting to skid sideways just when i thought that was it, 4-matic kicked in downshifted to red line (assuming all the power went to front wheels at that point, and then the car went right back on track with he lane i wanted to stay in..... Lets just say after that experience i pulled off the next exit to re fuel, take a breath, and continue my cross country journey. I will soon enough make a post of my wagon and all the work that has been done. These cars are by far extremely reliable if well maintained with OEM dealer German parts. Planning to make this the highest mileage wagon out there!
Also soon to come is full suspension lift for beautiful back road nature adventures, (nothing extreme)
Also is a picture attached of its great MPG i have been able to get, soon i have to change plugs and wires, have not been changed since purchasing at 135,000 (no clue what ill find when i get in there but im hoping they used the right stuff) either way all quality is going back into the car
