Hi! I bought used 96 C280 about an year ago,
and whenever I am driving above the street where the street is not flat...
my wheels and handle starts to turn and it's going whereever it wants to go....
I usually drive with only one hand, and sometime I feel that it's really dangerous when the handle starts to turn by itself.
I believe that it's due to the road, but I also think that some parts of my car has been worn out....
what do you guys think?

Hmmm... I think that is normal, especially for sportier cars. U can mention it to ur local Merwcedes delaer about it though. But those kind of road feed back seem to go with precision steering...

Just my $0.02,

Have your steering damper checked. If you are losing directional stability and you are feeling a loss of same, either that component is shot or you have a major casualty in your steering system.
