Review of the 2004 Mercedes-Benz C-Class

  • A variety of body styles and trims assure that you're bound to find one to your liking, but none can match the Audi A4 for interior style or the BMW 3 Series for athleticism.

  • Safety

Fun and sensible

Vehicle: 2004 Mercedes-Benz C-Class C320 Rwd 2dr Sport Coupe (3.2L 6cyl 6M)

It was either the C320 coupe for about $30k OTD. or the Maybach for $300k. Just kidding. I wanted a rear wheel drive fun commuter car. The V6 feels more powerful with its automatic than my audi felt with a manual. I love the idea of 8.5 quart oil capacity. All the technology and safety and quality is there. My oyster cloth interior with metal trim looks like a fine suit. But it's $15k less than the CLK320 and $9000 less than the C320 sedan. The free maintenance and lifetime roadside assistance are great. The car is comfortable and fun to drive.




Performance, comfort and flexibility

Vehicle: 2004 Mercedes-Benz C-Class C320 Rwd 2dr Sport Coupe (3.2L 6cyl 6M)

The "C-coupe" provides an great combination of performance (with the 3.2 liter V-6), comfort with features such as the dual climate control and the flexibility to haul moderate volumes of cargo, such as a bike or an air compressor. The car also provides decent gas mileage of 25 to 27 mpg on highway trips. I love driving this car.

Great car and the most fun to drive in a long time. Lots of power and great handling.




Just got it, very cool

Vehicle: 2004 Mercedes-Benz C-Class C320 Rwd 2dr Sport Coupe (3.2L 6cyl 6M)

This is my first Mercedes. Had a Lexus RX and got tired of the SUV thing. Forgot how solid German cars are. This thing is heavy and solid. Very powerful with the V6. It rocks and fun to drive. The glass top is the best thing in the world and a very convertible feeling, but security of a solid roof. Car is quiet inside and can hear the throat of the engine just enough. Wish I had a 5 speed and not the automatic. It is very cool to look at and totally Mercedes. Needed the hatch for extra room and practical reasons with kids.
