With the additions of an affordable sport hatchback (though they call it a sport coupe), a sport wagon and a high-performance sedan, Mercedes-Benz has a seat for everyone in the compact luxury/sport arena.

I bought my 2002 Mercedes c320 4 door sedan in December 2011 with only 68,000 miles on it.
I also bought a warrranty.
I have had it in the shop a few times but only to get the scheduled maintanance done that the previous owner did not do.
A lot of the things were actually covered under my warranty.
I love the Tulsa, Okla Mercedes dealership, Jackie Cooper Imports. They are top of the line for the way they treat customers and do the car repairs, etc.
I love my car!
I am 57 years old and have never had a car that I have enjoyed more in my life.

Well, 1st let me say that I am 17 and this was my 1st car. We've had it since 2004, it has 56k miles on it, and we have never had a SINGLE problem(knocks on the beautiful wood inside the car). I like alot of the things about the car, but if your 6'1 it can be a little challenging getting in and out comfortably. It rides nice, it looks great with a couple minor upgrades(tinted windows, non-stock M-B rims) and it handles very well. The only thing I don't like about it is, of course, the engine and how it works. I've driven 6 other cars and this is the slowest in 1st/2nd gear, but it flies once you hit 3rd. It also doesn't help taking premium gas, while getting 16 MPG.
Gotta love it. It's a MB.

Do not buy a 2002 C230 Kompressor, I bought it new in Mid-2001 and now have 155k.
The following work are being done now and some work were done last year: Cost around $3000.00
Front Suspension shock absorbers
Front Right sway Bar link
Adjust wheel bearings
Left and right torque struts
left lower ball joint
Front Brake Pads and Rotors
Maintenance average $2000.00-$2500.00 in 2008-2009.
Right lower ball joints/Arms.
The engine lights problem was very expensive to fix.
I spent $2500.00 for check engine light problems and the problem only went away for about 1 week.
The dealer simply told me to pay more money to replace more parts. I finally gave up on the engine light.
