Disappointed in Chicago
By Disappointed Chicago on
2001 Mercedes-Benz C-Class C240 4dr Sedan (2.6L 6cyl 6M)
I bought this car after driving a
Volvo for 5years - the 850Glt. Went
for the safety (eight airbags) and
class of driving a MB product. I
thought I was taking a step up...I was
very mistaken. First the seat comfort
does not nearly compare to the Volvo.
Second the interior room -
particularly the backseats - is
terrible. Engine performance for price
is lackluster. The Volvo850 GLT w/
turbo was the same price (year-on-
year) and lacked about 30hbp. One did
not feel confident accelerating onto
expressways - particulalrly the
Eisonhower and Eden's in Chicago...The
C240 is not worth it - PERIOD.
Style and class for someone who has to
be seen in an MB. Get a Volvo....you
will be much happier. By the way, I
just purchased my third Volvo.
