Review of the 2003 Mercedes-Benz C-Class

  • Though hardly inexpensive, the C-Class is appealing due to its variety of configurations and prestigious name.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    State-of-the-art safety and luxury features, three body styles to choose from, pleasing power from V6 engine.

  • Cons

    Can get pricey for its segment, ordinary interior presentation, tight squeeze for the sedan's backseat occupants.

  • What's New for 2003

Drives nice but...

by on
Vehicle: 2003 Mercedes-Benz C-Class C320 4MATIC AWD 4dr Sport Wagon (3.2L 6cyl 5A)

Purchased this car in 2005 with only 9000 miles, luckily under warranty. Car is nice to drive but has had a lot of electrical issues. Tranny leaked but had a recall on that and so far so good on that issue. The problematic electrical seems to be ongoing though, now at 40K miles the moonroof switch does not work all the time. Probs with electrical have been: Cig lighter failed (dealer said from plugging in cell phone?) told me to use the one in the back..convenient!; front headbeam would work sometimes when it wanted to, now taillight is out; drivers headrest failed. Non-elec quality- back seat cover seam tear fixed 3X (still torn); carpet on floor came apart; both front struts blown at 20K




Great car- great price

Great Car, love to drive it. It looks best in black because the open view window on the roof is well hidden. Go for the upgrade on the cd package - Make it the 6 disc bose, that automaticly increases or decreases at certain noise levels. Cool.

This is not your grandpa's benz. It's fast, smooth and precise. Transmission is like butter. Engine pulls strong with plenty of torque in the right places - sorry beemer peter. Pleasant sporting note out of the exhaust - that does not sound throathy but growns with assurance. Interiors is spacious and seats are german firm and supportive. Cars feels very solid and safe (air bags everywhere). Stops on a dime without squatting or diving. Pleasure to drive on long trips.

What's New for 2003

Changes are light this year. Mercedes' "4Matic" all-wheel-drive system is now available for sedan and wagon models (the C32 sport sedan being the lone exception) and the C230 Sport Coupe's supercharged engine has been revised for greater efficiency and lower emissions. A six-speed manual gearbox is available for the C320 models, and a supercharged C230 Sport Sedan is now available as well.

I have read numerous accounts concerning the faulty Valeo radiator that seeps an insidious contaminant, glycol, into the transmission of the 2002-2003 built C class. My 2003 C240 has had numerous pr?...

Someone on the sedan board just posted the changes that will be made in the c-class for 2003. Most of these apply to the coupe. He wrote:...

smaller. I think visually the E-class and C-class look the same on the road except for a close look if you know the difference. Also I agree with Merc1 about the CLK. I saw one on the road about a mo...
