2000 Mercedes-Benz C-Class C230 4dr Sedan
Bought two year old car in May 2002
with 8000 miles on it for 31000
dollars so it was no bargain
especially since I have had it back to
the dealers three times in one year.
I have persistent problems with the
transmission. The car jerks when I
accelerate from a light or stop when
it is moving in to first gear and the
dealer hasn't managed to fix it yet.
Now I know why the previous owner gave
it back after only driving it for 8000
miles! Drives very well once it gets
to third gear and on highways but for
the most part I am not enjoying it.
My next car will be a BMW or a Lexus.
Very comfortable. Drives well on
Highway. Exterior is attractive.
Antiquated heating system (dials!)
needs to be automatically controlled
to a set temperature. Many quality
issues if all the reviews are true.
