1994 Mercedes-Benz C-Class C180 Esprit 1.8 gas from North America
Most reliable car I've ever owned
The car has required 2 oil changes and 1 windshield wiper blade.
I have to add 1 or 2 cans or r134 to the A/C system every spring. It hasn't needed any other maintenance in the 2+ years I've owned it.
This is my 9th Mercedes, and this, by far, is the most reliable one yet.
Besides being maintenance free, it gets great gas mileage. A bit underpowered and no frills, but still fun to drive. I think it would be their best seller if they would release this stripped down model to the US market. Manual windows and manual seats are problem free. The cloth interior held up very well for a 20+ year old car.
All three of my children drive it and they are rough on cars. I bought it as an extra car while the children are in town, but now I drive it and let my E320 sit.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
