Hi everyone, I am thinking of getting my wife a new C320 to commute in. I was just wondering if there are any major quality concerns I should know about. We have a ML430 right now and I dont want to deal with as many warrenty claims as we have had on this car. Thanks for your help.

great car, no big problems...

Ours is an '02 and it had the issue with the BAS/ESP light coming on, but it was fixed a while ago with a new harness. Other than that, no major complains. The tilting mirror option acts up once in a while (not completely returning to its programmed position). The C320 comes with climatronic so you won't have the problem I have with the windshield fogging when used on 'Auto' (humid Florida). I am planning on putting the climatronic interface and hopefully fix this.

So far so good...

As long as you pick up a new C-class, or at least a pre-owned one that has had the fixes done, you should be in good shape. The first model year, 2001, did have the usual number of teething problems of course. Only two minor problems (power seat memory module and an adjustment of the power rear sunshade) with our '03 C320 4matic and we picked it up last November!
