Review

The car is built well, with German eginering and the Mercedes desgner looks and performance, this car runs great, it protects your transmission by locking your 1st gear when speeds go past 10 MPH...its built well, no bad comments on this one...

Review

The only problems to date have involved error messages regarding the traction control/ESP. The dealer claimed to have fixed the problem with a new cable, but they have returned. Beyond that the car is an absolute joy to drive, The torque from the engine is pletiful and the gas mileage (with 4 adults) has been over 32 mpg on the highway.

this car is really fun to drive. It has acceleration when you need it and is easy to manuver in and out of traffic etc. We have three Land Rovers so this is a nice change!

Review

Poor quality vehicle, not up to Mercedes standard. In the 14 months I've owned it, replace r/f bushing, new sunroof bracket, reset ECU, replaced fuel guage, new transmisson, driver windows sometimes closes, sunroof doesn't open/close all the time. How do u turn the a/c off? It's the same temp. with auto on/off. Steering wheel is squeking now. I would never buy a Benz again..look for Porsche or BMW.

Good Car, Little Problems

Review

Overall this is an excellent car, but it seems to be bothered by small, nagging problems with reliability. Over 7500 miles several small problems (none are close to being critical) have come up, which is a little disappointing. But, compared to the positives (decent power, crisp handling, excellent brakes, solid feel, safety, luxury), the shortcomings (rattles, notchy 1-2 shift) are easy to overlook.

Review

Noisey! Sunroof constantly squeaks dealer unable to eliminate. Drivers seat squeaks. This is the noisest car I've owned since my 1980 Citation. Stereo system sub-par. Can't hear rear speakers (mounted in lower door trim) Way over priced

Review

To start, I am a Mercedes loyalist. When I was forced to buy a new car, I considered the BMW 3 series, volvo S60, and the Audi A4. I am really glad I chose this car. It's fun to drive, great to ride in, has great handling, performance, etc. Long trips are fun; short trips are fun.

Review

The 230 has been a fun car, good power to overpass others or, to win merging wars at on ramps. radio (non bose) is fair, installing after-market radio can be a bear! tinting of windows should be done by a REAL pro if not, you will make a trip back to the dealer to replace both the am/fm powered ant and the alarm ant.! "b" piller is poor hard to see others on both sides! back seat is good for small kids front seats are not great if your a larger person. sunroof is big and fun.
