I'm looking to purchase a 1995-2000 MB C230, but I'm skeptical about it because everyone is telling me that the 2.3L 4 Engine has a lot of problems when you get over 100K miles.

Has anyone had any personal experience with that engine?

150k miles on my 2000 c230k, original internals and original chain. only problem i've had with the engine itself is a leaking waterpump that was changed at 100k miles (expected), but it still beats strong with no external signs of timing chain stretch. honestly speaking, this engine seems well built and i expect it to outlast the body by at least double lifetimes

fyi: always used mobil 1 european synthetic 0w-40 and have since switched to amsoil european 5w-40 at my last oil change.
