2004 Mercedes-Benz C-Class C230 Kompressor Rwd 2dr Sport Coupe (1.8L 4cyl S/C 6M)
We bought used with 12500 miles under $21K. List was over $32K . Car is only 15 months old and has remainder of 4/50 warranty including full maintanence! Is a terrific used car value, but not so good resale if buy new. Dealer disclosed all history and car has never had any warranty issues, just flex maintenance. MB got it right on C-class with regard to quality issues. Car handles and drives great and gets great gas mileage rated 23/30 but we are getting about 22 city and 35 highway! 8 air bags and esp makes for very safe ride. No rattles and very solid feel. Hatchback is great for getting big things in and out. Considering an 06 Civic EX is over 21 this is great value for your money
Sunroof, ride quality, solid feel, gas mileage, rain sensing wipers are nice, heated leather seats are great and love the self dimming drivers and rear mirror.
Base radio not same level of quality as rest of car...look for one with the Bose upgrade. Parkpilot should have been standard as rear visability is an issue, but then most coupes share in that.
