2003 Mercedes-Benz C-Class Hatchback 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

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


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.

Review

Love the gas mileage and performance on
the highway. We tested about a dozen
cars in the same price range before
chosing the C230. The car drives like a
35K vehicle!
