There were some production years where MB had
problems with rust - especially cut edges.
That's why it often is around the trunk lock,
the side marker lights, the inner wheel wells,
the upper door frames, the bottom doors etc. pp.
Already known from the model before, W202
from 1993 until 2000, as well as e.g middle-class
general consensus with 2003 is that the MOPF
versions - built from October 2004 - are
better regarding rust, but it still has to
be seen if and how much (or simply because they
are newer). >> Stay informed about: 2002 C240 Rust
