Great car, bullet proof engine


Climate radiator broken because of near by ventilators in front the car.

Oil for servo wheel control, need to fill every month a half of liter.

General Comments:

Great car, very reliable, cheap service, very easy to fix, engine bullet proof. My friend buy this from me, he is a mechanic and he told me that engine can go more 300,000 km without any service.

This engine wasn't turbo and I think that is the reason for this big mileage.

The main cons of this car is small space inside, but that is C-class it is ancestor of Mercedes 190 class, if you need speace buy E-class.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
