2001 Mercedes-Benz C-Class C320 4dr Sedan (3.2L 6cyl 5A)
Excellent value (1 year old 11000
miles). Pleasant drive, quiet, firm
comfortable ride. Handles well, but a
tad heavy. Tried C240 stick: sluggish
and trans inferior to '87 Golf. Auto-
trans excellent. Many controls weird
but some just fine (seat adjusters
impossible to misunderstand). Seats
almost as good as Volvo (high praise!)
but wish they located me better.
Overall: Really nice car, really good
machine. If it holds together we're
going to like this car for a long time.
If you're spending this sort of money
you'd be nuts not to try one of these.
Overall quality. Feels as if it's been
carved out of a solid lump of "der-
automobilmachenstoff" rather than being
made up of parts bolted together.
Sufficient performance. Mercedes "feel".
Not much, really. Simplify those %$#@#!
menus! Give it the steering from a BMW
