Love it - but not perfect

Vehicle

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

Review

Overall I love this car. Performance is very good, handling great, interior suprising roomy for the size. More than that, it makes you want to drive it - often and hard. Eats up highway miles, great fun to toss around. The ride is a little stiff. Steering is stiff. Controls are stiff. Not bad, but an adjustment if you're coming from a more pampering car. One serious complaint - more rattles and squeeks from the roof area that I would expect from a Mercedes.

Favorite Features

Auto transmission - best I've ever driven. Acceleration. Bose stereo rocks. Sun roof is great. Tearing out of a driveway in the rain, feeling the Stability Control grab and put you back on line.

Suggested Improvements

Cup holders are lame. Trunk slightly too narrow to fit golf clubs (you have to fold a seat forward). Owners manual won't fit in glove compartment if CD changer installed.
