In the Edmunds Mercedes Benz C Class is a group which gives you discussions of what are the pros and cons of a Mercedes. I would research this website to give you a better price comparison of a mercedes to a lexus. A classic problem with Mercedes is the electrical problems they have had through the years, and if you do not want to spend a lot on electrical problems I would wayered towards the lexus. Lexus however has an average of 130 defects per 100 cars and the interior of these cars can be somewhat small. Repair costs for lexus are kind of expensive too.

The Merceds c230 goes for rougly $30,000 dollars. It gets 29 mpg on the highway and 21 mpg city. It has 2.5 V6 with 201 horsepower. Driver and Passenger crash ratings wore rated both 4 out of 5 and that is not bad at all. It comes with a 6 speed transmission is a manumatic so you can either up or downshift for a better drive or leave it in automatic for city. There is also 17 inch wheels which are standard. It has dual climate air and heat and 10 way seat adjustments for a very comfortable ride for driver and passenger. The build quality is also exceptional.

The lexus averages for around 23,000 to 27,000 dollars so it is a few thousand short of the bmw. It also has a 2.5 litre V6 with 204 horsepower so a little bit more hp than the bmw but only by 3 hp. It has an electric start and also good crash ratings. The braking and accleration are also reported to be real well. There is no manual with the larger motors and the backseat does not fold however. City gas mileage is 20 to 24 mpg. The highway is 28 to 30 mpg. Consumer car ratings are very high 4 and 5's and that's out of a 5 point scale so this car got high reviews in all departments. The BMW was said to be underpowered in accleartion however. It got a JD power rating of 5 on the mechancial side and that is the best rating and JD is a renouned auto reviewer so this is really good. The keyless start of the lexus make take some getting use to.

In my opinion it a toss up between german engineering and a home based American dealership. I've always liked the styling of BMW and they are autobauhn tested suspensions make them very aggressive in driving through corners and a very fun car to drive. However, the BMW is priced more and is said to be underpowered. The Lexus is cheaper and has enough power for any consumer. My best bet for you would be the Lexus. I hope this fixes your dilema and always have fun with the car you purchase!

I have a 07 c230 and it's throwing a code saying runner butterflies are stuck closed


i'd try some fuel addative to clean out the injection system ,give it a good long drive (50-100miles) so the engine gets to a high running temperature , does the vehicle do a lot of stop/start journeys ? if so i'd add the fuel addative on a regular basis to avoid this kind of issue, otherwise will have to strip down the injection system and inlet manifold etc

What is the best economical car to buy to be used fro family as well as tourist? If i want to buy a car ranging from 3 to 5 lakhs and i want to use it for family outings


buy a car ranging from 3 to 5 lakhs and i want to use it for family outings
You can consider the Indica, you can check some motor ranges on the link. I work as a marketing manager in automobile industry. The Indica is low on investment and does look good as a family car and as a rental car too. It runs low on fuel too and is inexpensive to maintain. I think what you need for that price is a car which can be reliable and friendly enough with the family and can also return profits when run as a 'tourist' vehicle. Your only option is the new Tata Indigo CS LS BSIII. It falls into the sub 5 lakh car category. It has a boot for luggage. It is a sedan, technically. It is safe and reliable. It has almost miserly maintenance and running costs. Fuel efficiency is excellent; If possible buy the DiCOR for better fuel efficiency.

Where is the MAP sensor located on Mercedes C230 2006?


Map sensor problems are more common on certain models. As far as engine computer sensor reliability this is one of the sensors that appear to be more reliable overall. But on a few models poor mounting location chosen by the factory may reduce its reliability.

You can use BMW scanner to check the problem

Yes it is. As a former Mercedes Technician I can attest to this personally.The parts cost triple the amount of most other vehicles and the labor rate at a dealer or independant mercedes tech is higher compared to other vehicle manufacturers. I would get a reliable car like a Ford or Nissan

Ballpark price on 2007 Mercedes Benz C230 Maintenance B


The dealer near me charges $365 for a 4-cyl, $395 for a 6/8 cyl, or $425 for a 12-cyl. The only actual repair/maintenance you get for that price is an oil change (with Mobil1 and the MB filter, which are CRITICAL, ~$120 on its own) and tire rotation. This makes a lot of people think it's a scam, but really, it's a little steep, but definitely worth doing. The rest of the service consists of a massive inspection of your vehicle covering the following items.

-- Fluid levels
-- Tire tread/pressure/wheel condition
-- Air filter (inc. clean out housing)
-- Cabin air filter (inc. clean out housing)
-- Lubricate sunroof rails, locks, hinges, and seals on body.
-- Drive belt and tensioner
-- HVAC system operation
-- Instruments, cruise control
-- Wipers/washers/lights/horn
-- Windows/sunroof operation
-- Hoses
-- Transmission fluid
-- Brakes
-- Chassis/suspension
-- Driveshaft, inc. flex discs
-- Road test
-- Reset maintenance light

This is actually pretty essential to do, despite seeming like a lot of money for not much work. I have very rarely done one without catching a few things that the customer needs, and often it was a problem that would have gotten far worse had it been left to its own.
