2001 Mercedes-Benz C-Class Sedan C320 4dr Sedan (3.2L 6cyl 5A)


Review

After 27k miles, I haven't had any
problems.

The C320 has lots of power when you
need it and drives very smoothly. I
got the sport package and the car
handles very well around the turns.








Best Features

Excellent performance and handling, the auto/manual shift, Bose sound system, the pop up truck on the key chain and the memory seat/mirror settings.


Worst Features

My only issues with the car are 1) The rear side mirrors are too small. 2) The A/C is a bit complex. 3) Clear lens headlights would be nice.

2001 Mercedes-Benz C-Class Sedan C320 4dr Sedan (3.2L 6cyl 5A)


Review

Leased it in 11/2000 and purchased at
lease-end. Few problems; but ALL cars
have problems, ALL of them! I have
the sport package with xenons, phone,
CD changer and it is an awesome ride
especially in light of the hands-free
laws in certain states. Would I buy
another? Yes! But not where I got
this one.


Best Features

Integrated phone, xenon headlights, wheels (sport pkg), no-charge scheduled maintenance.


Worst Features

Service in the 'burbs north of Boston sucks because of the Herb Chambers monopoly; and I mean SUCKS. C-class should come pre-wired for phone & CD changer!!! Dealer install $$ is thievery. Dealer R/O avgs should not dictate repairs; broken/worn-out parts should.

2001 Mercedes-Benz C-Class Sedan C240 4dr Sedan (2.6L 6cyl 6M)


Review

I am very fond of German cars, but my
experience with the '01 C240 has been
a disappointment. This car has spent
more time at the dealership than all
my previous Benz's (3) and BMW's (5)
combined. The dealership has been
wonderful and most problems have been
covered under waranty. However, it is
a hassel finding the time to take car
to dealer for repairs. My '99 C230
has been much more dependable. The
only time it has seen the dealer is
for routine maintance. If you want to
drive a "Baby Benz", do yourself a
favor and find late model W202 (older
C Class)and save yourself alot of
trouble and money.


Best Features

Exterior styling and comfort


Worst Features

Improve electrical systems, fit and finish of interior trim.
