2004 Mercedes-Benz C-Class W203 C180 Classic 1.8 kompressor from Australia and New Zealand
The A/C needed gas.
And the locks sometimes don't work. Just old age really.
Well in Dec my W211 E240 decided to leak oil from the rocker cover gaskets. So I needed a car to get around in as I fixed my W211.
A search later (had to be a Merc or a Falcon) and I saw this W203.
I know the W203 has a bad rep. But my one so far is a lovely lil thing.
Has GREAT A/C; it's smooth. The seats are harder than my W211. But not overly so.
The build quality is shockingly good. I have the pre-facelift version, which is the worst W203. But am still reporting no worries at this stage.
While this was meant to be a temporary car while I fix my W211, I think Coby (as I call it) is a keeper. With my old silver (my W211) :)
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
