2003 Mercedes-Benz C-Class C230 Rwd 2dr Sports Coupe (1.8L 4cyl S/C 6M)


Review

My girlfriend wanted this car based on
the pictures she had seen on the web.
I talked her into dropping by the local
dealership and test driving one. We
took it for a spin and fell in love.
It felt like we were driving on rails.
I am an agressive driver and it will
handle some pretty serious turning
without loosing traction and the
Supercharger helps keep us ahead of
traffic. I had an Integra GSR which
was almost 700lbs lighter and this
stock 230 definately out performs my
Acura even with several thousand
dollars worth of aftermarket
performance upgrades dropped into my
Integra.


Best Features

Excelent Dry Weather Handeling. Decent Fuel Economy. Quiet Interior. Stock performance upgrades, Supercharger, 17" wheels, Lowered suspension. Decent sounding stereo System. Panorama sunroof is nice too.


Worst Features

I would suggest that Mercedes put standard power front seats, Interior Power door locks. A standard In-dash cd player option and my stereo Reception could be better. Other than that is it a perfect car.

2003 Mercedes-Benz C-Class C230 Rwd 2dr Sports Coupe (1.8L 4cyl S/C 6M)


Review

I actually never really considered
purchasing a Mercedes. They just seemed
like another overpriced brand name car
(such as BMW). After shopping for a new
Accord coupe (a comparably equipped one
will cost $22K), I decided to check out
the C-class coupe since it was in a
comparable price range. I love the car
after test driving it. It is by far the
most fun vehicle I've ever driven
that's under $30K.


Best Features

Panarama moonroof, interior features such as pop-up cup holder, premium Bose sound system, onboard computer with steering wheel controls, good acceleration


Worst Features

Rear exterior, auto transmission a little sensitive at times

Review

I LOVE this car. I was nearly killed
in an SUV after it flipped over, and
this car gives me all the perks and
safety of a Mercedes, as well as the
shlepping capacity of a small SUV! The
hatchback is phenomenal. It also has a
very light security cover that even a
5'2" woman can easily take off and on.
The rear seats also fold down
individually to create extra capacity!
The car handles phenomenally-- makes U-
turns with ease-- and has excellent
acceleration. It's a smaller car, but
not so small that you feel as if you're
going to be smushed like a bug.
Sunroof is nice to have. Radio has
AM/FM/Weather band.


Best Features

Hatchback with rear seats that fold down for extra capacity + great acceleration and handling.


Worst Features

You need an engineering degree to read the dashboard and flip through it. Light-colored seats have to be special- ordered, which doesn't make sense with a light-colored car, especially in Texas, with 108-degree summers.
