Why it's on the list: Maintenance; Fuel; Repairs
The run of Mercedes-Benz vehicles to avoid starts with the C-Class. Although not as expensive as some of the other cars on the list, it is still not cost-effective. Maintenance on this vehicle is rather expensive, but not only that, the cost to repair any piece on this car if it's not properly taken care of will cost you more. It's better to keep up with the maintenance instead of fixing things that break due to poor upkeep. However, the most costly feature of the Mercedes-Benz C-Class may very well be fuel, as that's something that you need to pay for constantly. It will always be a reminder that this is an expensive car, and maybe too expensive to maintain properly.
