I have had my 2002 Mercedes-Benz C230 Coupe
for 2 1/2 years, after only one year the gas tank leaked
in my garage, and my car needed to be towed out. At
9,500 miles they had to repack the wheel
bearings and tighten sunroof. Now with
21,000 miles they need to be replaced
again the sunrrof squeaks. My car makes a horrible
sound until it warms up, everytime you start
it. The dealership service manager said that this
is normal for this model. It sounds like a diesel, or a 12
year old car. The supercharger lacks
performance and consistency in its
output (six speed). The cloth seats stain if
any water touches them. I traded up from a
1997 Ford Mustang GT. In every aspect of
performance, the Mustang was better. This is a horrible
car hiding under a Mercedes Benz Logo. I
will never own another Mercedes again.
Glass Roof, Exterior design.
Where to start. This car needs a better clutch,
suspension, upholstery, and supercharger.
I couldn't even fit all of my complaints above,
but the Mercedes-Benz Service Manager and Regional
Rep won't do anything for me. This is a lease that is
under allowance by 10,000 miles! I hope
not every car is a lemon like mine!
