2005 Mercedes-Benz C-Class C230 Kompressor Rwd 4dr Sport Sedan (1.8L 4cyl S/C 6M)
I kept going back to the MB dealership to stare at it. Almost bought the 2006 BMW 3, which is frankly a better car. But the 230k just looked so great in Mars red, I couldn't resist. And while it has been the head- turner I thought it would be, ther are some issues. The paint chips very easily. The trunk lid has a wide gap and looks not fully closed at all times. The cruise control fob is badly located, and I keep trying to use it as for directional signal. The radio difficult to read in sunlight. The powerseats are sub standard. It already needs to have some work done on window insulation. It's slightly underpowered. All that being said, I'd buy it again. Sexy outside, sleek inside and a relatively good value.
Favorite Features
It looks fast standing still. Love the aluminum trimmed interior. Has killer rims/wheels. The body styling and overall interior finish.
Suggested Improvements
Power seats need to be improved. The paint should have a few more coats. More power (maybe v-6 standard?) An AWD version would be great. It should be MP3/iPod prewired like BMW. Relocate the cruise control.
