    My advise having had two merc's in the house is to tread carefully on the petrol as the M2XX designated engines suffer from cam gear wear/chain wear, both ours were the 5 pot diesel and must say delivered well.
    As with any car maintenance is the key but at some point something's gonna break or fall off.

    Also the indicators worked well and they changed lanes in a timely manner, unlike some other make of car's...Not all german i will add

    Its Deffo the petrol engine M271/M272 16V motors fitted to most models through various years, some resulting in bad misfire and ultimately bent valves

    2010 Grey MERCEDES-BENZ C CLASS 1.6 C180 BlueEFFICIENCY Kompressor Elegance 5dr for sale for �6955 in Highbridge, Somerse

    2010 Silver MERCEDES-BENZ C CLASS 1.8 C180 BlueEFFICIENCY Sport 5dr for sale for �8000 in Croydon, Borough Of Croydo

    2008 Silver MERCEDES-BENZ C CLASS 2.5 C230 Sport G-Tronic 5dr for sale for �6995 in Swansea, City Of Swanse




    So the 1.6 and 18 have save power rating big car fir a smaller engine so more stress ?? Do the 1.6 and 1.8 share same engine design and is this on your list of bad engines dose the 2.5 have same issues? Same design engine as the others just bored out so weaker??
    Seams you get alot of car fir your money but is the engine on all these models a problem?

    Best bet is give an Independent garage that deals with mere's a call and ask for some advise, usually these guys are more forward than a dealer

    I must admit, I don't speak from experience as I've never owned a German car myself, but a couple of my self-employed mechanic mates, both of which service all brands, reckon the higher end German cars aren't all that on reliability (particularly electrics) and they cost an arm and a leg to repair. If you want reliability the general feeling seems to be go Japanese, Honda being the best...at which I do have experience, they are brilliant. Yes, they can be pricey on parts... IF they go wrong, which is pretty rare. We've just bought our 4th one! Lol
