2002 Mercedes-Benz C-Class C230 Sports Coupe 2dr Hatchback (2.3L 4cyl S/C 6M)

Review

This was MB's attempt at wooing the younger generation to become MB owners. Unfortunately, once you get past the great looks and supercharged fun driving and look at what you got, you become very disappointed - cheap, ugly cloth seats, plastic pieces that break easily, cheap looking faux-carbon dash and frequent trips to the mechanic for problems they just can't seem to chase down because it's all computerized. Just avoid them. I tried to love it, I really did but it's just not reliable.

Best Features

The looks, the supercharger and the panoramic sunroof!

Worst Features

Nicer detailing using quality components that don't look like a Kia! Reliability suffers. Confusing dashboard display and everybody's favorite MB gripe - cruise control placement.
