1994 Mercedes-Benz C-Class 180 Classic 1.8 from UK and Ireland
Excellent car, but lacks the character of my old 190E
Very little has gone wrong with this car.
There is a fault in the fuse box which meant that the indicators would occasionally not work - but I fixed this with some cleaning of the contacts!
I replaced the front and rear disks and pads within the last 10000 miles and now it stops like nothing else!
This is such a quiet car - when travelling along a country lane at 40mph with the window open you will hear the tyres rather than the engine!
Its not a sports car, but the torque is great - it is best at around 4k rpm - 90mph in 5th.
It could do with more legroom in the back - but as the driver, it's not my problem!
The model has very few toys, but then what it has works very well - you get what you pay for.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

My mother has a 1995 C180(Elegance). The exhaust system has broken and the gearbox has just about broken, and there is a funny noise with the fans at the front when it changes gears; it's an Auto.
Also it gets very hot after a drive; the radiator is fine.
The wiper jammed up and the radio has broken.
There is also not a lot of power when taking off.
