2003 Mercedes-Benz C-Class Sedan C320 Rwd 4dr Sedan (3.2L 6cyl 6M)


Review

I am a Principal Engineer at a tier one Automotive supplier. I am also 28 yrs old. I needed a car that would be fun to drive, reflect prestige and above all, perform flawlessly to stand up to the toughest engineering standards. This car does it and more. Its perfect, nothing needs improvement (including the stylish cup holder). It is made in Stuttgart, Germany, excellent fuel economy, and SUPERB performance. Every single day, every single time, I am at a light, I race it against my neighboring vehicle. Till date, NOTHING has been able to beat its acceleration. It handles curves like a ... mercedes! Stability, comfort, elegance, style...! No other car (including the BMW) can satisy like this.


Best Features

Stability, ability to handle curves, comfort while driving. And reliability. I know for a fact that Mercedes test their vehicles more rigorously than any other manufacturer. And it is safe... absolutely safe.


Worst Features

NOTHING! Just make sure you keep making them at Germany, American made Mercedes are not just up to German made Standards.

Review

Been in shop 6-7 times in 20 months. Out
of service about 30 days. Biggest
complaint was occasional hesitancy in
acceleration and rough idle. Took dealer
a year to fix. They tried to convince me
it was "in spec". Various other
problems. MB has promised a "trade
assist" for a new car. We'll see!


Best Features

Nice ride.


Worst Features

Better reliablity.

Review

I looked and looked and I'm glad I
found this car. I had never own a
Mercedes before but I can see why
people buy higher class models. This
car is super fun to drive. The air-con
controls are a little odd. I just hope
I made a smart choice.


Best Features

Bose System, six-speed transmission, and powerful motor.


Worst Features

Keep radio and air-condition controls simple.

Review

Fun car to drive. Good experience at
the dealership experience. Car's great.
has 25-30 more standard features than
in BMW 3 series.

The features are nifty and absolutely
wonderful. Great fuel economy for a 3.2
l V6.


Best Features

Separate climate controls for front seat passengers. Seats, bose speakers, Auto stick, front leg room, power.


Worst Features

Cup Holder, Climate Controls, Arm Rest, CD Player location, shoulder room and Door lock ------------------------------------- Upper portion of arm rest in way of leg while resting. Climate control not very user friendly. Door lock should be on the left arm rest.

Review

I am as well a first time MB owner and
given my experience with this car, I
look forward to my next MB. This car
is a great driving car, comfort,
safety, responsive and great handling
at high speed. Having read these
reviews I agree with may points: I’m
6’ and find the interior room
adequate. Styling is outstanding as
compared to other cars in this range…
btw I think BMW needs a new design
team…yuck. As far as the cup holder
and temp controls, I do agree, seems
to take more effort than necessary,
but my decision criteria generally
involves other features.


Best Features

Responsiveness and handling. Solid feel.


Worst Features

Center AC/Heat controls need to be simplified.
