4.0 out of 5 stars Good, but C280 not covered
Usual good Haynes coverage but, inexplicably, the C280 (my car, with the V6 engine) isn't covered. Still, most jobs are covered, just not the V6 engine. I also bought the huge Bentley manual for the C-Class, which is better and covers the C280 but costs 60 (Amazon marketplace) and at least half of it is wiring diagrams ! I also recommend you join the many free MB...

This review is from: Mercedes-Benz C-class Petrol and Diesel (1993-2000) Service and Repair Manual (Haynes Service and Repair Manuals) (Hardcover)
Usual good Haynes coverage but, inexplicably, the C280 (my car, with the V6 engine) isn't covered. Still, most jobs are covered, just not the V6 engine. I also bought the huge Bentley manual for the C-Class, which is better and covers the C280 but costs 60 (Amazon marketplace) and at least half of it is wiring diagrams ! I also recommend you join the many free MB forums on the net of which there are at least 6 (including Club202 which is just for the W202 C-Class) for helpful advice and tips (and parts diagrams). In conclusion, the Haynes is cheap and worth buying for most jobs, and if you need more detail (or if you have the C280), buy the Bentley manual too.

5.0 out of 5 stars Saved me a fortune, 4 Jun 2011
This review is from: Mercedes-Benz C-class Petrol and Diesel (1993-2000) Service and Repair Manual (Haynes Service and Repair Manuals) (Hardcover)
Having bought new cars previously, invested in my first Merc (lo-mileage 13 year old C200 Elegance with FMBSH) as needed something good enough to be left at port/airport/Eurostar terminal without problem for weeks at a time whilst working abroad. Have learned never to skimp on maintenance but Merc dealers (and some specialists) are expensive. As Mercs are so intelligently designed and well constructed, a Haynes manual was the obvious choice. Easy to follow and very comprehensive, tackling new tasks became almost addictive. On jobs too big for me to tackle easily, it enabled me to specify exactly what was needed, saving lots of unnecessary labour spent on diagnosis. At a conservative estimate, saved me more than four times the value of the car.

The legend lives on. Not normal bedtime reading but If you need it, it's perfect. If you don't - you wouldn't understand.

4.0 out of 5 stars Does exactly what it says on the tin, 8 April 2013

This review is from: Mercedes-Benz C-class Petrol and Diesel (1993-2000) Service and Repair Manual (Haynes Service and Repair Manuals) (Hardcover)
Does exactly what it says on the tin, perhaps that why there are cheaper imitations out there on the market, which fall short.

Some workshop manuals are better than haynes but they tend to cost as much as 10 times the price so for value for money haynes are best by far.
