Love My C
When I first drove my 1995 C280 I fell in love with her, a love that has lasted and grown over all these years.
You must realize that I am VERY particular about my cars and for any one vehicle to provide me with the satisfaction I desire for 8 years and running is well worth the extra initial cost. In reality, I have probably spent less, since if I were not satisfied with the vehicle I would have traded every 3-4 years as I had in the past when the vehicle was starting to show its age.
The "C" Class is the perfect size for me and my wife and that is why I also chose the ML which is only 6 inches longer and 6 inches wider. Yes, I will stick with my C! From what I read on this forum she has many good miles left.
