2004 Mercedes-Benz C-Class C230 Kompressor Rwd 4dr Sport Sedan (1.8L 4cyl S/C 6M)
I am original owner of a Mars Red C230 Kompressor.
65k miles. Stowed properly for winter every year and since purchased.
Car gets so many looks, countless people have stopped me to say how beautiful the car is over the years. The power is incredible, especially off the line...sweet gas mileage even when you punch it.
Brakes are hands down the best.
So far just changed the oil, bled the brakes in the spring, cleaned sunroof track and waxed.
NEVER had a quality issue...only infrequent, and very minor issues.
Perfect excuse to go to the dealer and absorb the Benzo eye-candy.
Love the car, brand, the Nordstrom level of service and features of S-class for a great price
Swagger, i.e. Balls, Power (low/high end).
Fuel efficiency, 34.5mpg on last 4 hour road trip.
Great looking color, hood, rear-end, profile.
Fat rear tires give it that hot rod look, though suttle enough to be a daily driver.
Lumbar support is perfect, driven 12 hours straight comfortably.
6-cd changer, A/C, sunroof, power windows and everything else still works flawlessly.
Auto-dimming mirrors really make night driving a nice experience.
