2005 Mercedes-Benz C-Class C55 AMG 4dr Sedan (5.4L 8cyl 5A)


Review

The C55 AMG is a truly unique/special car. Its sleek look is extremely deceptive. The only problem I have with the car is the digital audio system by Harman/Kardon. The majority of the sound comes from the front, not the rear. Overall, the car is fantastic, and a vehicle I plan on keeping for several years. If you want a four-door beast, and at the same time, have all the luxury/performance you can handle, the C55 is for you.


Best Features

Navigation, interior design


Worst Features

Quality of audio system

2005 Mercedes-Benz C-Class C230 Kompressor Rwd 4dr Sport Sedan (1.8L 4cyl S/C 6M)


Review

I eagerly awaited the arrival of this car as I made my selection while it was on the ship. I have not been disappointed. It handles well, has superb performance, and gets 29.5/30 mpg on the highway. I love the way it drives, the way it looks, and the compliments I receive from friends. The longest trip I have taken was over 7 hours on some rough back roads and it was a comfortable trip. The workmanship is excellent, with not one problem to report after 8,000 miles. It is one of the best car buying decisions I have made in my 47 years of buying cars.


Best Features

Looks, gas mileage, comfort, and performance

2005 Mercedes-Benz C-Class C230 Kompressor Rwd 4dr Sport Sedan (1.8L 4cyl S/C 6M)


Review

The classy/sporty combination this car boasts is unequalled in today's market. She handles remarkably well at any speed and is quite responsive when asked to politely grace the left lane. I can't keep from peeking back at the sporty, low-profile appeal she exudes inside and out. Soft leather, multiple steering wheel controls, and premium sound will keep this Benz in my garage for a long time. This entire purchase, from the test drive to the daily drive home from work has been the real deal!


Best Features

Aggressive power (for a 4cyl) and handling. Tons of manipulative-easy to access controls, and comfortable size for the price. Also, she has tremendous curb appleal.


Worst Features

I love evertything about this car, however, my wife says she sometimes uses the cruise control for a turn signal.

2005 Mercedes-Benz C-Class C320 Rwd 4dr Sport Sedan (3.2L 6cyl 6M)


Review

I traded my 2000 SLK 230 for this car, and I don't miss my old roadster. Handling is awesome and impressive-- better than my SLK. This car is solid Mercedes all around and feels like one of the more expensive models. I had the 230 Sport loaned to me one day and it doesn't even come close to my car in performance--the 320 is a better package. The quality is superb and I find it more fun to drive than my Dad's new E500. The car turns heads and the design is sexy. Interior design is great, but can use more room in the back seat. No complaints so far, except, I could use a little more power when I punch the gas at the stop light... One day I'll upgrade to an AMG model!


Best Features

Sport rims, 17 inch wheels, and sport body trim. Love the 3 point steering wheel with driver grips!


Worst Features

Faster 0-60. If the engine could only match its aggressive looks.

2005 Mercedes-Benz C-Class C240 Rwd 4dr Luxury Sedan (2.6L 6cyl 5A)


Review

One of the best vehicles I've owned. I've owned 3 Infiniti's and the Mercedez is the best by far. It's overall handling and performance makes it tops in my book.


Best Features

The power and looks


Worst Features

I would make the drivers seat easier to get into. The design is tight
