2002 Mercedes-Benz C-Class Sedan C320 4dr Sedan (3.2L 6cyl 5A)


Review

This is my second 2002 C Class. I
bought a 2002 230C and traded it in 18
months later for the 320C. I enjoy
driving the car and like the feel of
the larger engine. I had a lot of
lights blow out in my 230 and have not
had that problem in the 320.


Best Features

I love the acceleration!


Worst Features

Move the cup holders!

2002 Mercedes-Benz C-Class Sedan C320 4dr Sedan (3.2L 6cyl 5A)


Review

At 6'3" tall, my biggest problem is
with legroom, my VW golf had more, I'm
a little cramped on longer trips.
Ride, handling are impeccable. Watch
that speedometer, you can easily be
going 20 mph faster than you realize.


Best Features

The engine is smooth, powerful, the 5 speed auto is nearly perfect.


Worst Features

Let the front seat move back more.

2002 Mercedes-Benz C-Class Sedan C240 4dr Sedan (2.6L 6cyl 6M)


Review

Great car, fun to drive. I had two 3-
series BMW's before this car and this
is by far a superior vehicle. I think
that it is more compatable with a 5-
series BMW (and at a 3-series price).
I will buy a Mercedes again and am
encouraging a family member to trade a
Jaguar in for an s-class.


Best Features

Driver display very cool. CD changer is in the glove box. Everything functions at the push of a button. Great warranty service w/ a detailed report, everything thoroughly checked by dealer (numerous problems at BMW dealership). Love IR key..comes off of the key chain.


Worst Features

Cup holder is cool but doesn't fit larger cups. Console could use more room for storage of small items. Tele- aid had a few bugs (but were remedied by Mercedes, no problem since) but is still a better system than others on the market.

Review

I see a distinct divide in the reviews
for the C240 - and I can tell you why.

The 2002 C240s were made in both
Germany and in Brazil. I was alarmed
one day when a friend showed me the
plate in the car stating it was
manufactued in Brazil. He was having
a lot of problems with the vehicle. I
couldn't understand why, because I
have the same car and he bought his on
my recommendation. I checked my car
and it indeed was manufactured in
Germany.

If you are considering this car, make
sure you buy one made in Germany, not
Brazil!!


Best Features

Dashboard controls. MB look, quality and reliability.


Worst Features

lose the cassette player.

Review

Bought new and within the first week
noticed a crack in the steering wheel.
Dealer replaced. Then the brake light
went out. Replaced. Then the license
light went out. Remote refuses to work
at times. About 3 months in, tried to
back the car out on a winter day and as
soon as I engaged reverse, the engine
died. Should have been a sign along
with the weird engine noises.
Then at 18000 miles, a few weeks over a
year old, the engine stalls on the
highway.
A plastic piece on the under side of
the rear passenger door is also loose.
The c240 is a complete waste of time
and money. Stay away!


Best Features

It worked for a year.


Worst Features

Better quality control.
