2005 Mercedes-Benz C-Class C230 Kompressor Rwd 2dr Sport Coupe (1.8L 4cyl S/C 6M)
When I picked up this car the salesman
said that I'd be getting all the build
quality and safety features of the
very expensives MB's. I
thought "sure". He was right. My
other two previous cars had both been
back to the dealer for repairs in the
first six months. Not this one.
There's just something about a
Mercedes that connects the owner to
it. No wonder people keep them for
years and hundreds of thousands of
miles. I'm still finding small
features now even after 6 months.
Good steering and on center feel. A
front driver just won't give that to
you. Fantastic paint, even where you
normally don't look. Fast but still
gets good mileage. Premium is
recommended, but I've found 89 to be
fine. Fold down seats in back.
