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

Review

I was looking for an entry level luxury sedan and compared this with the new Saab 9-3, entry level Jaguar, and the an Acura. Although each had its charm and nice features I settled on the C230 sedan for its overall style and performance. I really like the aluminum trim and the thickly bolstered seats in the car. The car is somewhat compact but has enough leg room and the trunk is nicely sized. I wanted the manual but the salesperson talked me into the automatic- it does suck some of the fun out this rear wheel drive car but will probably be more convenient in the long term.

Best Features

Nice styling both inside and out, good handling and acceleration, cool automatic rear sunshade, abundant safety features

Worst Features

The stock radio could be better- it has average output (definitely get the Bose option if you are an audiophile), the seats should be completely power as a standard feature rather than just tilt and up/down
