About Mercedes-Benz C320

As a model in the Mercedes-Benz C-Class lineup, which is the replacement for the Mercedes-Benz 190E (W201) and was the smallest model in the marque's lineup, Mercedes-Benz C320 was built by the DaimlerChrysler from July 18, 2000, to 2005 as a compact executive car. Originally introduced as a model of the second-generation C-Class, C320 had been available for about five model years before being discontinued and replaced.
Mercedes-Benz C320 (W203) made its debut in March 2000 for the 2001 model year when the C-Class was in its second generation. It was offered in three body styles, 4-door sedan, 5-door station wagon and 2-door coupe (sport coupe) but came in only one trim level. In early 2004, the North American version of C320 got a facelift. The instrument cluster was revised to display a set of analog gauges, and the center console and audio systems were revised. A fully integrated iPod connection kit was available as was a better Bluetooth phone system made optional. Moreover, a new dash, redesigned seats and tweaked trim pieces help to polish the interior up a bit, a new audio system with six speakers and a CD player is standard across the board, a revised suspension and a DVD-based navigation system were also available. During its whole lifetime, Mercedes-Benz C320 was powered by a 3.2 L I6 rated at 215 horsepower and this engine sent power through 6-speed manual or 7-speed automatic transmission to the rear wheels or four wheels.

Mercedes-Benz C320 Common Problems & Maintenance Tips

Boasting striking style, a luxurious interior and the latest safety and driver-assist technology, Mercedes-Benz C320 is definitely one of the best luxury sports cars. But considering the youngest C320 now is at least twelve years old, you had better be prepared for these common problems on it in advance:
First, noises coming from underneath the vehicle is the most common situation that Mercedes-Benz C320 drivers have ever met during driving. If you have some knowledge about how the vehicle works, then you may realize it is the suspension failure, however, most C320 drivers still underestimate the seriousness of this problem. They thought the worst the consequence this problem could bring is an uncomfortable and unsteady ride. In fact, this is just a start. These noises are causing uneven and excessive tire wear, which in return results in tilting vehicle. In the end, you will find hard to control the vehicle due to intense car vibration, tilting vehicle, unintentional steering, loose and operated roughly steering wheel. And all these symptoms should be attributed to the C320 ball joints, wheel bearing, shock absorber, sway bar bushing, control arm bushing, coil springs, air suspension and coil spring insulator.
Second, cooling system failure is another common problem on Mercedes-Benz C320 but not many drivers really take it seriously. It is true that when the vehicle runs, the engine will operate and generate heat. But according to experienced C320 drivers, the operation temperature of the engine could not be cooled down and the engine keeps overheating, which is definitely caused by cooling system failure. In fact, if you do not solve it in time, you will soon find the engine suffering from performance issues such as running roughly, misfiring, stalling, hard starting and inability to the start. Even the vehicle will also experience a decrease in power, acceleration and fuel economy. Once the Low Coolant Light and Check Engine Light come on, please ensure the C320 water pump, intake manifold gasket, cooling hose, radiator, coolant reservoir, thermostat and thermostat gasket are in good order always.
Moreover, please attach enough importance to the routine maintenance on vulnerable auto parts of Mercedes-Benz C320 since some parts just could not last as long as the vehicle could due to fragile materials and harsh working conditions. Thus, you are advised to add the C320 seat belt, windshield wiper, wiper blade, antenna, cabin air filter, fog light and headlight to your routine maintenance list.
