2004 Mercedes-Benz C-Class Sedan C240 Rwd 4dr Sedan (2.6L 6cyl 5A)


Review

This car speaks for itself. Nice horsepower, comfort, all the little toy gadgets to keep you occupied while enjoying everything in comfort. Favorite gadgets includes air climate control, controling radio volume/station selection/changing views to see on speedometer from the steering wheel. Also the sunscreen in the rearwindow as well as the cd player. The best part of it all is the ride. Don't let this car fool you its the greatest


Best Features

ride, comfort, ammenities to play with, price

2004 Mercedes-Benz C-Class Sedan C230 Kompressor Rwd 4dr Sport Sedan (1.8L 4cyl S/C 6M)


Review

This car is a perfect blend of luxury and sports performance. It's surprisingly well-priced. It handles hair pin turns like a true high performance sports car, yet rides like a luxury sedan. The 4 cylinder Kompressor engine has a surprising amount of power. One would never guess the car has a four cylinder engine. The interior is impressive. The seats are comfortable. The car comes with many features that are found in its more expensive models. It's a little tight in the back but still makes for a comfortable ride. The sound system is impressive. This car is a must on your list of cars to test drive.


Best Features

The handling is magnificient. Gorgeous looks inside and out.


Worst Features

A little tight in the back.

2004 Mercedes-Benz C-Class Sedan C230 Kompressor Rwd 4dr Sport Sedan (1.8L 4cyl S/C 6M)


Review

I drive MB on business in Europe. Bought one of my own and love the car. Comfortable at speed, both here and on the Autobahn, and handling both at speed on interstate and in my favorite hairpins, is exceptional.


Best Features

Love the styling and handling. Tight turns, and the seats hold you behind the wheel nicely! Bose system sounds great, ride is comfortable, even better than the larger Chrysler 300M I traded. Great introduction to German engineered driving-


Worst Features

Rain sensor goes nuts around 11-1 in the afternoon! Black paint scratches permanently from a cat walking on the car! Can't see the wiper controls without turning the steering wheel. ESP system jumps the gun on me occasionally (a little spin or slip in the turns is fun!).

2004 Mercedes-Benz C-Class Sedan C320 4MATIC AWD 4dr Sedan (3.2L 6cyl 5A)


Review

Love my 2004 C320 4Matic, handles great, style gets the eye from others.The little extras are cool, like the rear shade & cup holder. I love driving to work now, after 26 years it's finally a pleasure! More models with Ash interior should be offered, they seem hard to come by and it is truly a womans' color. Two areas to improve: 1- The A/C system is a little complicated/hard to finely adjust. 2- The CD player sound is awesome,and the steering wheel controls are great! However, the cartridge that holds the CD's in the glovebox is flimsy and hard to change CD's in & out of.


Best Features

Auto seat & wheel adjust to key. Audio controls on steering wheel.

2004 Mercedes-Benz C-Class Sedan C230 Kompressor Rwd 4dr Sport Sedan (1.8L 4cyl S/C 6M)


Review

This car is a fun car to drive with everything I was looking for with an unbelievable low price. Interior of the car is sporty with aluminum trims and comfortable leather seats, race pedals. Not to mention the navigation system, cd changer etc. Car has the speed not expected from a 4 cylinder (faster than c240 V6). Performance is good but excellent for the price. Exterior look is great with a sporty kit, exhaust tip, 17 inch wheels that really stand out and gets a lot of attention, staggered wheels, sunroof, and bi xenon headlamps. For the price of in the low 30's it is an excellent deal!


Best Features

Bi xenon headlamps which give the car a great look. The 17 inch wheels with the brake rotors. Navigation system.


Worst Features

Of course more speed! SCRATCH PROOF PAINT.
