My son is looking at an MY 07 c230. I don't know anything about these cars. I own a MY 95 SL500 and know about it's problems. What should he look for?

As far as I know the 2006 C230's have major balance shaft issues so avoid those, 2007's usually don't have that problem but there's a possibility. If he wants a C230, look for a 2007 or anything 2005 and below. If he is ok with any other W203, look at C240's, C320's, but don't look for C280's. I've heard also that the W203's with the 5-speed auto, anything 2005 and below I think have a transmission seal problem or something, also the 7-speed autos have a few problems I think, i'm not the most experienced in the field so look and post in the W203 thread, as you are in the wrong thread.

I have a 07 c230. Around 60k miles the passenger window regulator went bad, constantly replacing headlamps, and just two days ago all the lights on the right front corner went out, i.e headlamp, turn signal, fog light..havent been home to check on it yet cause im on the road during the week..but as soon as i find the problem, i'll post back..

Well, just got home.. checked the lighting problem on the car, come to find out, all it was is the ground wires for all those lights were loose, a 30 second fix, all the grounds are on one post in the engine compartment..So other than that, just the window regulator is the only problem i've had.
