This was my dream car after reading the
previews. I really wanted to love it
and keep it for a long time. It was a
car that I had to "reach" to pay for
but I thought it would be worth it.
Boy was I wrong!
First the good. The car is fabulous to
look at and drive. It handles very
well for the level of comfort it
provides. The steering could be more
communicative like BMW's but overall it
was a pleasure to drive.
Unfortunately it has had way too many
problems. It has been at the shop too
many times. I've sold it recently,
because I couldn't stand it any longer.
Power, handling, beauty.
Build it better. These cars should
last at least 5 years before there is
a major problem.
my 2002 c230 coupe is comfortable,[to
sit in] fast and cool. quiet it is
not. but the one thing i find
unacceptable is the vibration that i
feel from 35-40 mph to 60-65 mh. i
feel the vibration in the seat,
pedals, gear shift, steering wheel.
mercedes has told me that it is
normal, but ive heard no one else
complaining about it. so am i the
I am a police officer specializing
in traffic reconstruction. I have seen
many crashes involving all kinds of
vehicle makes and model. NOTHING
impressed me more than a Mercedes Benz.
AMG elevated Mercedes to a higher
level. Not only can an owner enjoy the
safety Mercedes offers, AMG provides
the horse power other manufacturers
strive to achieve. It has four doors.
In my opinion for its price range, it
is the best value. Owning one truly
gives me the best of both worlds. A
car that is built like a tank that can
run with Porsches and Corvettes. Not
that I do, but knowing I can is good
enough. It is a wolf in a sheeps cloak.
My favorate feature is definitely the
hand built engine AMG produces. It is
truly a work of art. A V6 with the
power of a V8. The safety features
that is unsurpassed.
I would like to see some of the options
available to the E class and S class
that is not offered to the C class
models. I'm quite sure future models
will have a slightly more powerful
engine than the current model. Fuel
economy is something Mercedes can work
