Review

So I buy this C-230 last Friday for my wife ,every thing is fine. Saturday we take it for lunch so far so good, we go to see a movie and come back to find out on the way home that the transmission is slipping than jerking and a hard shift up. Heading home disappointed ,I let the car rest till Monday soan take it to the nearest dealer and On the way the check engine light comes on and the trans mission is Stuck in the first gear ,asking why ?? you've got me !!! with only 77k on the clock you would think a Geo Metro or Kia Sephia would give you more run for the money than a baby Benz ,what's up with that? And what ever happened to German Engineering ??

Favorite Features

Winter Mode (W) Standard Mode (S) Transmission ,of course when/if it works

Suggested Improvements

Better Transmission ,stronger steering Box ,finer Air Conditioner for God's sake ,is it not Luxury no matter what size ?
