Fun and sensible
By Learnsomething on
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.
Excellent Engine. Touch shift auto
trans. Oyster cloth interior (it's very
hot in summer here), Free maintenance.
1. 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.
5. Put some variety on the dealer lots.
