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


Review

Decided to move up from a Honda Accord, and cannot believe the difference between the two vehicles. Everything about this car is amazing. The vehicle dynamics alone should be a selling point. Just got back from a trip up to Morro Bay, Ca., and avg. close to 29 mpg @ 80+. More importantly though, is how this vehicle behaves, whether it's the steering, braking, or cornering, it really shows its heritage, especially when compared to my Accord. Don't get mewrong, the Honda was a great car, but there is no comparison between the two.


Best Features

Tip start(no need to keep holding the key), electronic key-look ma-no blade, lane change turn signal feature, free maintainance, blue tinted glass, tip shift automatic tranmission, standard side airbags.


Worst Features

none

Review

It was refreshing to test drive this little Benz, after owning 2 MBs (190E 2.6/300E) that it can be made both solid, stable and fun at the same time: Quick ratio steering but well damped, great solid body, wonderful peppy 4 cyl engine (this thing gets down and boogey, even to this Boxster owner), nicely done interior, far superior to those of Audi A4/BMW 3/Lexus IS300/Infi G35 etc...and overall driving finesse unmatched by any of the above brands. It IS the car to drive home AFTER experiencing all others, for it calms your nerve and surrounds you in well- engineered safety features and still a heck of fun to drive when you want to.


Best Features

Great solid body, door slam sounds, beautiful contrasting interior material (love those fake carbon-fiber look!), thick doors, ultra smooth engine and torque, cross-drilled huge front rotors and beautiful wheels, best auto gear shifter in the business!


Worst Features

Hertz rental car like main instrument panel lacking engine temp display, unfit in a classy MB, expensive options, temp control knobs too small, Bose premium sounds not really premium sounding.

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


Review

Great balance between ride & handling with a refined powertrain & solid feel; 4 cyl. very quick & refined with good mileage; abundance of safety & comfort features. Don't buy a BMW 325 or Infiniti G 35 until you check this car out. The dealership & great service is an added plus.


Best Features

Looks, xenon lights, rain sensor wipers, bose radio & auto. on/off headlights.


Worst Features

Steering too heavy under 10 mph; accelerator pedal too far & hard to press & lack of driver lumbar support.
