2003 Mercedes-Benz C-Class C240 Rwd 4dr Sport Wagon (2.6L 6cyl 6M)


Review

Mercedes used to be one of the best quality, most reliable, a durable cars. Since they merged their purchasing / procurement function with Chrysler and decided to globalize themselves instead of being 100% German, the Mercedes quality degenerated to the level of Chrysler or even below. I love the design and the functionality of the station wagon. I love driving it. But the QUALITY? My car within 30,000 miles had 2 catalytic converters, 2 (!) alternators, engine gaskets (ouch) and several little bottoms replaced. 2 door knobs and parts of 2 doors were replaced. The headlights after 50,000 miles are no longer possible to turn off, electrical problem with several thousand dollar repair cost

Nice car to drive, esp. if it is your first Mercedes

The cup holder can be improved. When unfolded, the cup is at a higher level leaving scope for the coffee cup to tilt when taking turns. The cup level should be lower near the center of gravity of the car

Review

I have owned it for 1 month, and so far there have been no problems. The car rides good and drives great. I love the feel of the car. The only concern is that sometimes the engine seems very sluggish from the start, especially when it is hot out.


Best Features

Styling, quietness and all of the little extras.


Worst Features

More horsepower and better fuel economy. I think MB should offer a C230 Sport Wagon.
