I am considering the purchase of a 2005 C240 AWD. I have never owned a MB before. Are there any particular issues I should be aware of on this model? I am a single woman in her mid forties and tend to keep my cars for a long time. My last car was 14 years old when I sold it.

A 2005-06 C-classes are probably currently the best C-classes to own. 01-02 had LOTS of problems. Many of them got fixed in 03, but not all. More got fixed in 04, but not all. 05 and 06's are pretty much where everything seemed to start working right. It should be a pretty good car. Just expect high maintanance costs if you never owned a Benz before.

C240

Thanks for the prompt reply. No I haven't owned a Mercedes Benz before. However, when I asked about maintenance at the dealership I was told that a service is required every 15-20,000 km. I was also advised that there is an A service and a B service and the prices were $200 and $400 respectively. Is this out of line?
