Default Mercedes C220 CDI 40000Kms Report



This is my dad's car. It was the first delivery of this facelifted C220 for entire Gujarat and Rajasthan.

Everything I wants to write here as already been written by GTO here. I totally agree with what he has to say about this diesel RWD perfect sedan.

Right now its riding on Bridgestone Potenza GIII, 225/55 R16. The company fitted Good Years only lasted for around 28000 KMS. Not that it was completly worn out but looking at the thread depth at that time we didn't feel confident enough to drive on those stock once, so we replaced at 28000 KMS.

Service

The only thing is we did not spend as much as GTO has mentioned in his report.

Below is the service history.

First
Kms - 11094
Service Charge - 11903

Second
Kms - 21753
Service Charge - 12780
Third
Kms - 31414
Service Charge - 12214

Fourth
Kms - 41872
Service Charge - 11725

Others

Wipers were not giving proper clean ups during last moonsoon, so we called up CAMA MOTORS and ask them the price for the pair of wiper blades, and whoolla they quoted us 6500+. SO we called up a friend at Opera House and he has arranged us for 4000. We replace it by ourself (It's pretty easy.)

One of our driver was cleaning the car and we not sure what he did but Front merc marque came off. and we found out we have to replace the whole thing from bonnet. It costed us Rs. 2005 with labour.

Problems
After around six months from the purchase, horn stoped working so went to Cama Motors and they replaced it under warranty.



Apart from that no problems faced so far and really happy with RWD Perfect Sedan.

Cheers,
Mugen_Power.

Hi really short and good report. In fact after reading this report I am now feeling that I can also afford to maintain a merc. Though I cannot afford to buy an brand new merc but I can definetely afford to buy a used one. My only fear was that I could not afford to maintain one. Thanks for making me feel good.

Hello, could you possible throw some light on the maintenance costs post warranty, is it too high? Or is it in line with expectations.
