1997 Mercedes-Benz C-Class C280 Sport 2.8 straight six from North America
It may not be quick, but it will always have class
The radio deck was replaced a few times, but all under warranty.
The car handles great! The Sport Package adds the stiffer suspension, steering, 15" AMG wheels, and the anti-roll bars, so the car corners great and is not to loose feeling at high speeds.
The acceleration is amazing, and people are always surprised to find out it has a straight six. The look on their face when I open the hood is priceless! I will never buy another make of car. Mercedes is for life!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

I agree. I owned a C280 Sport straight 6 myself and I absolutely loved the car. Great engine, nice combination of smallish size and great comfort.

Previously owned a V8 Lexus LS400, and much prefer my C-280 Sport.
Better gas mileage, quicker, and just more stylish.
