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


Review

I love how my C230 looks inside and out! However, it is slow and I have had it in the shop for issues w/ tail lights, brakes, amplifier (twice), driver seat motor bad, steering column motor bad. Total of 6 times that were unscheduled maint. I plan to buy a BMW next.


Best Features

It's very classy looking and sleek.


Worst Features

Needs more horsepower and more durable breaks.

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


Review

40,000 miles in one year. 98% hi-way driving. Average 29.7 to 29.9MPG between oil changes


Best Features

Feels safe on the road under any road condition and speed


Worst Features

Raise top end speed above 135mph. Perhaps lower octane gas. How about a diesel C-class?

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


Review

I have no regrets in getting my '05 C240. I love everything about the car. Interior not only looks great, but is very confortable even on long trips. Only wish is the car should have 17" wheels instead of the 16" stock.

Review

The car is a pleasure to drive. It has a lot of pep for a 4 cyl. The Kompreser kicks in and you can feel it take off. Everything about it is automatic makeing it easy to drive. The car handles well in the rain.


Best Features

I enjoy the sun roof package with the upgraded 6 changes CD


Worst Features

Would love to see a front sun visor like the rear window visor.

Review

This is my first Benz and it sure won't be my last. I just returned from a trip out west and was very impressed at my fuel mileage of 35mpg running 80mph hwy. It was a joy to drive 10hrs straight in.


Best Features

Styling, stereo, seat warmers


Worst Features

A tad bit more legg room would be nice as I'm a 6'2 male. Bluetooth would be real nice as a standard feature. Navigation is very poor for Benz
