2005 Mercedes-Benz C-Class C230 Kompressor Rwd 4dr Sport Sedan (1.8L 4cyl S/C 6M)
I looked at the BMW 325,Acura TL and
Volvo S60 2.4T/R models before choosing
the Mercedes. I've never regretted
it. I've been driving quite a bit in
the past month and it is so fun to
drive and comfortable on the driver. I
used to own a BMW but I'm not sure if
I'll go back. I'm waiting to see if
the Mercedes has the long term quality
that I would expect.
Exterior/Interior looks and the
Horsepower to gas mileage ratio. It
has a lot of pickup for a 4cyl but gets
30mpg on the highway. Gotta love that
and it draws a lot of looks and
comments. It looks very expensive even
though it isn't really.
I would like to see the horsepower
increased to 200+. The 189 is not bad
but I like a little more hp if possible
without sacrificing gas mileage.
