Vehicle2004 Mercedes-Benz C-Class C320 Rwd 2dr Sport Coupe (3.2L 6cyl 6M)
ReviewIt 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.
Best FeaturesExcellent Engine. Touch shift auto trans. Oyster cloth interior (it's very hot in summer here), Free maintenance.
Worst Features1. Redesign back end. 2. Offer 16" wheels; fast wearing noisy 45 series tires on 17 inch rims are just a fad (-$200 difference to MBZ) 3. Standard stereo and speakers belong in Hyundai or Kia.(+$200) 4. AC control should be all electronic. (+$100) 5. Put some variety on the dealer lots.
