The Mercedes Benz C-Class has secured its position as the most reliable medium-class car on the market.
Figures produced as part of Allgemeiner Deutscher Automobil-Club’s (ADAC’s) latest breakdown report place the Mercedes Benz C-Class first in its segment when it comes to reliability.
Based on testimonies supplied by ADAC members, the survey was able to demonstrate how reliability data produced by manufacturers translates into everyday experiences.
Cars which were registered between 2003 and 2008 were assessed, with incidents of breakdowns caused by technical reasons recorded.
From this, the ADAC was able to deduce that the Mercedes Benz C-Class is the least likely car to break down in its sector.
The new Mercedes Benz C-Class has also been described as the most efficient C-Class ever thanks to its three newly-developed engines with direct injection.
With 15,290,614 members as of August 2005, ADAC is Europe’s largest automobile club.
