Review

With 74xxx miles, engine balance shaft bad, M-B lost the class action law suit so they will pay for partial repair. Never should have gone bad I the first place. Engine intake breaks due to cheap plastic rods. Valve body in transmission is a problem and gets stuck in gear a $2,400 dealer only repair. Electrical failures. Do not purchase this car !!!

Review

Bought this Mercedes Benz C230 Sport edition after owning a 94'C220 for 12 years. My old 94' didn't age so well, the transmission had issues and engine lost most of it's power early on. I had driven a few of the 2006-2007 C's as loaners and I fell in love with the C230 sport 2.5 V6 automatic. Great change from the earlier 4 cyl Kompressors!
I got this car for $19,300 with 22k miles Certified from Motorwerks of Barrington, IL. I didn't have to haggle much either, I bought this car on Black Friday 2008 when NO ONE was buying cars due to the recession. Black on Black fully loaded, and I mean loaded- GPS, 10 speaker surround Harmon Kardon stereo, seat warmers, full power seats, leather, etc

2006 Mercedes-Benz C-Class Sedan C230 Sport 4dr Sedan (2.5L 6cyl 6M)


Review

This was the first time that I purchased a brand new car.
It has been nothing but problems since owning it.
In addition to costly regular maintenance, I have had to replace brakes, rotors twice, tires need to be replaced often, the power steering pump went out, and shortly after 52,000 miles I began having transmission problems.
It continues to start in a higher gear creating lag when I push on the gas.
Other times, it will not automatically upshift and stays in first gear.
In ordet to override the problem, I pull over, turn off the car, and then restart again.
I will NEVER purchase a MB again.


Best Features

I originally was interested in this vehicle because of the exterior design. Although a little small, I love the design of the interior. It does get good gas mileage, but needs premium fuel.


Worst Features

Recall due to transmission problems.

Review

We have had this car for 3 years now.
I have found it to be a reliable, fun car to drive.
Fit and finish is outstanding.
The car moves out smartly and the ride is smooth.
Service at the dealer has been very good in spite of the service prices.
Its about time to replace a second car, and I think I'll take a look at the E-class.


Best Features

I like the 7 speed transmission and paddle shift, the sun roof, the paint job.


Worst Features

A few more horsepower would be appreciated.
