FCP Euro Spring Sale

Launching in 2008 and continuing through 2014, the Mercedes-Benz W204 covers the C-Class Models which represent one of the best value German cars that you can buy currently. Over ten years old, there are a few things you should watch out for when buying, owning, or before you begin repairing a Mercedes W204. 

In the video below, Kyle Bascombe, our Mercedes-Benz Catalog Manager specifically covers earlier "pre-facelift" models between 2008 and 2011; this encompasses the C300, C350, and the C63 AMG variants. Although being a reasonably new car, the W204 is easy to own, having very few mechanical issues, and the ones that pop up, are easy to diagnose and repair at home by yourself. The buyer's guide covers everything from what to look out for when visually inspecting the vehicle, to what to listen for when test driving. Kyle even throws it on the lift and gets up underneath this particularly worn W204 to show you what you will need to look out for during your ownership.
