1998 Mercedes C280


Topic starter

Hey Scotty, recently started watching your videos last year and have learned a ton about cars from you, thanks!

I had a question about a used car I recently bought, wondering what you think of it. It's a 1998 Mercedes C280 with 177,000 miles, automatic transmission. Interior is in near perfect condition, mechanically the car works great and has no problems. Only thing I've noticed is when I switch gears, the transmission is delayed and it jumps a bit when it changes gears. I know how much you hate Mercedes but I just wanted an honest opinion. 

Thanks and much love from Florida!

Well they all turn into money pits and that's on the verge because the transmission starting to go out if I were you I'd try to sell it for whatever I paid unless you want to spend many thousands in the near future


I have a 1999 Audi A6 manual transmission, if you want to keep the car better get a junkyard transmission and pray.
