C240 is nice, not stellar

2002 Mercedes-Benz C-Class C240 4dr Sedan (2.6L 6cyl 6M)

Review

Got my C240 to use mostly for commuting on So Cal freeways to work. Love its quietness, build quality, ride quality. Performance is tepid with the 2.7L V6. Wish I had bought the 3.2L V6 but cost was $5k more. Mileage is not a good as I thought it would be - freeway is okay - 29MPG, but city is more like 20MPG and combined is usually 24-25MPG. My friend's E320 gets same mileage and is bigger. Problems included lower front roll bar links replaced, crankshaft balancer replaced and transmission control module. STRONGLY urge you to buy extended warranty - cost of these three was over $2k in repairs (all covered by EXTENDED warranty that cost me $1k at time of purchase).

Favorite Features

Ride, build quality, quietness, interior materials, roominess, luxury features, trunk size.

Suggested Improvements

More power for 2.7L V6, offer 3.2L V6 w/o bundling it with other expensive options. Make CD changer standard equip.
