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

Review

This car is very overrated, and not reliable. Exterior paint is substanderd for MB product. I find that the paint chips easily and faded prematurly. The engine is very noisy and unrefined. The supercharger needs more psi boost. The climate control system is confusing and doent work well after a few years. The rims are undersized and the lug nuts rusted after a year. The electrical system seems below realiablity for a MB. Maintenance is overly expensive. Most repairs occure after the warenty and are usually in the thousands. Resale value is very low. 12k as of today. A lot of buyers remorse on this purchase!

Favorite Features

I like the styling in the front end and the sunroof. Bose sound system works well.

Suggested Improvements

Engine needs a lot of refinement. Transmission does not work well with the engine, a lot of lag in the supercharger which shouldn't be due to the fact it is a supercharger. Overall poor performance and very expensive to maintain. Why do you think they stopped making it?
