2003 Mercedes-Benz C-Class C230 Rwd 4dr Sport Sedan (1.8L 4cyl S/C 6M)

Review

Bought the C230 a year ago and even though it's my winter/work car still managed to put 15,000 trouble free miles on it. Rear wheel drive got along great in Wisconsin winter as long as there were Blizzacks on all four corners. Have had no problems, get 34mpg hyway, fun to downshift the automatic. Had a BMW 325i before but got tired of seeing myself around every corner so bought the c230. Steering seemed loose at first compaired to BMW but now am getting use to it. Overall OK car.

Favorite Features

Looks and stance is great!

Suggested Improvements

The gear selector indicator on the dash is way too small. If you wear bifocals you'll never find the indicator to know what gear you are in. Not a good feature for downshifting. Later models have improved this. Needs a little exhaust tone.
