2001 Mercedes-Benz C-Class C200 Kompressor from Australia and New Zealand
Mercedes don't make them like they use to in the '80's!
When pushed, the brake pedal would eventually hit the floor! At the stop light, the brake pedal would start to slowly keep pushing through until it hit the floor and the car would start to move. Took the car to the dealership 4 times before they finally realized that there was an air pocket in the brakeline as well as a small hole in the lining. Realizing the potential danger, they finally fixed it.
Brakes work really well now and has gotten me out of trouble a few times! Good timing!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

Also have a C Class in the family. The C180 Kompressor Elegance2004.Nice Car. You are a smart person. Good on you for buying one. Far better than the rubbish that comes out from Elizabeth and Broadmeadows in the form of the Holden Calais and Ford Fairmont Ghia.

I had a 98 C180 Classic W202. Nice car, but seriously underpowered. Now I have a 2001 C200k Avantgarde. Seriously quick, seriously comfortable, and very desirable!
