1999 Mercedes-Benz C-Class C230 4dr Sedan

Review

My sport model C230 has been a joy to own and drive. I especially appreciate the availability of torque across the rpm range provided by the supercharger. Road handling in the mountains is up there with the BMW's and it tracks like it's on a rail on the freeway. Irregardless of the poor reliability ratings MB has racked up in the auto reviews, this one has performed with almost zero problems after a couple of new car warranty fixes. Paint, trim, interior have all weathered the last six years beautifully. My only complaint was the low mileage on the first set of tires. After switching to Michelins, tire has been good. I get around 25 mpg in town and over 30 freeway driving.

Best Features

Low-end torque from the supercharger. Handling on mountain roads and straight- line tracking. Comfortable driver accomodations. No signs of wear and tear after six years. Solid feel.

Worst Features

The auto transmission clunks from D to 4th to 3rd. Adds character, but not characteristic of a MB. Needs a better standard sound system.
