    I own a 1998 w202 c200 manual which is completely rust free.It has 151000km's on the speedo and runs very well.

    I've owned five Mercedes: two w202's, one w140, a w124 and an r107. While the build quality in all is superb, I'm preferential to the W202. I've owned two 1999 C230 KOMPRESSOR's and they're are phenomenal. Smooth ride, solid car, great gas mileage and classic Bruno Sacco styling. One look and you know it's a Mercedes.
    The vehicles they produced since 2000 have been lackluster except for the R230 (SL). They've eliminated the hood ornament on most models, gated shifter is gone...and now marketing front wheel drive models. Really?
    Their slogan used to be "Engineered like no other car in the world."
    Somehow, they've lost their focus. The engineering went out the window, quality suffered because of that and the styling is anything but Mercedes. I do hope they reconsider their ganeplan and focus on the core values that made Mercedes a prestigious brand but bulletproof when it came to quality, engineering and reliability.
