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.


Favorite Features

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


Suggested Improvements

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!
