Great Used Car Value
By Tom Steele on
2002 Mercedes-Benz C-Class C320 4dr Sport Wagon (3.2L 6cyl 5A)
We picked up an '02 in April of '05 with less than 25K miles on it. We had looked at a newer C240 wagon, but found the power a little lacking compared to the 320. I think the C-class looks better in the wagon configuration than the sedan. MB discontinued the 320 wagon for '05, but continued with the 240 wagon.
Great power, whenever you want it thanks to the manu-matic. Auto down and up on all windows. Powerful climate control system. Feels like it's built from a solid block of steel, but handles surprisingly well.
The bane of all MB owners - soft OEM brake pads. The dust is just ridiculous on the front wheels. You have to clean them constantly.
