I have a 9 month old C Class 220CDI, that has electrical gremlins. They manifest themselves on occasion by:

- Not being able to unlock/lock the car with the remote, wasting valuable time waiting for a response and having to use the key to get in.

- Wings mirrors on folding them in sometimes work together, but invariably only one or other folds in, alternating the problem from side to side as the gremlin sees fit.

- SatNav goes mysteriously of line and sometime hangs requiring a off/on reboot and destination re-program.

None of these are life threatening just annoying!!

I have a 10 month old C 200 Kompressor that is very noisy especially from cold that sounds like an exhaust problem. The car has been back to the dealer on numerous occasions for them to say nothing is wrong. Anybody else had this problem.

I have a 2001 C320 Mercedes Benz with electrical problems the car's radio and all of the gauges just stopped while I was driving. The Dealer had the car for two weeks and couldn't fiqure it out. So they just started to change out parts. Now the radio has gone out on 3 different occasions and they stay it's the radio. They installed a new radio and now they say it's an electrical problem that they're checking out. I think it's time to go to the Chevy dealer to buy some dependable transportation. No way am I going to keep this car that cost $44,000 4 years ago beyond the warranty period. I'm really teed off at MBUSA.

Firstly; I realise this review was dated when there was no face-lift model.

The 1st Gen of the w203 C-Class did have a lot issues, it's true. My 2nd gen has had no big issues so far.
