2002 Mercedes-Benz C-Class C240 4dr Sedan (2.6L 6cyl 6M)
My C 240 is a pleasure to drive. I
upgraded from a '98 Mazda 626 and it
has made my 30-mile commute 10 times
more enjoyable. Often driving in heavy
traffic, I find comfort in the firm,
but cradling seats. On the open
highway, this car is responsive enough
to quick needs for accelerating into a
lane change and very quiet in the
cabin. It handles well under the
direction of tight steering that gives
the car a stable and solid feeling. If
you're on the fence between this car
and a 325i and luxury is more a
priority than performance, this is the
car for you.
Exterior design. well-designed cup
holders that are hidden away, yet
easily accessible. Rear sun shade. Just
about every control you need (sans
climate) is on the steering wheel.
Some of the controls on the dash seem
cheap compared to the way the rest of
the car is assembled. The seat memory
system (option) seems to be selectively
forgetful on the mirror settings.
