What is the difference between c and e class of merecedes benz – car talk – nigeria z gas cd juarez telefono

f you are contemplating a C Class, I’ll recommend two generations (depending on your budget). The first generation (’93 – 2000 and the third generation (2007 to — avoid the 272 motor). The second generation is an "episode" on its own. The third generation is the first luxury C Class and has a lot of expensive repairs to it. It has S Class technology to it (as MB stated). The previous did not have, so the lowest you could get were the E Classes. The third generation C Class is a significant improvement over the two previous models and the exterior itself is made of some high-strength composite steel. It is the first C Class that rides benzy. The previous are not as refined.

The C is not easy to maintain than an E Class. It is as every typical Mercedes. It’s about the same and the parts are not much in difference (if not the same). The engine and transmission (except the high pressured displacements) are the same in the S Classes as well. Power is "re-arreanged" and other factors taken into place to compensate for the extra tonnes. The same power-trains are in the E Classes as well. There are less issues to deal with but it isn’t quantifiable enough to base a choice upon. The issues on a particular engine will be on all the generation model fitted with the particular engine. The electrical issues/problems are as complicated as other models. A qualified person with experience has to work on it because diagnosing can be clumsy and from experience, a particular problem may not be the problem.

Eyop: Trac thanks for the analysis between the E class and the C class. Can you further explain on which models based on your experience that one can purchase because to my understanding the higher the engine capacity the higher the cost of maintenance and even fuelling. The 1.8 litre engine C class seems to be easier to maintain compared to the 2.6,3.2litre engines which is a V6.

The most accurate answer for this thread has been given above by the Oracle, Mr. SIENA, apart from the A Class in Europe, here in USA, C Class is the lowest class of Mercedes, followed by the E Class. However it varies in engine like C230, C240, C280, C320, C350 and C500 AMG, same goes to the E Class and the rest. Mercedes cars are very durable and not expensive to maintain. I currently own 3 of them and I have owned several, I can tell you, other than changing the oil, I have had no problem with them. The new generation ones has double-coupled plugs (My V8 S430 has 16 plugs) that would last 100,000 miles be4 tune-up and changed. If you change your engine oil regularly- 5000 to 7000 miles, you shouldn’t have any problem with either c or E models, and they don’t consume much gas unlike what people thought.

The 1.8L is underpowered and I don’t believe it’s a good choice when it comes to fuel efficiency. Performance is different on a hot sunny day with the air-condition and three other passengers. There should be three other 4 cylinders within the gas family. I am not acquainted with those engines. From what I know of the first generation C’s, the 220’s and the 230’s had the least issues. The compressors should be avoided. It is a wear item the cost of the compressor is $4500.

Sincerely, don’t expect Camry-reliability and fuel consumption. You save a lot more fuel at higher miles per hour. Honestly, I wouldn’t be worried about fueling and maintenance cost. What should trouble you is the purchase itself. If there were deferred maintenance and known issues that weren’t addressed, you will pay the cost of the previous owner’s deferment. Don’t listen to anyone that tells you that it doesn’t cost money to maintain any Mercedes or dedicated aptitude isn’t needed; genuine parts are expensive and there truly really isn’t a way around it except you opt for after-market solutions.
