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


Review

The design department did its job flawlessly with the C-Class; The car is a delight to drive when new and shows great composure on the road and lots of punch, inside the car you are surrounded by exquisite quality (if you choose the OPTIONAL luxury packages), but beneath the skin there is a time bomb. Materials, components and especially electrics and electronics are a nightmare and they seem to be designed to withstand only the use for 3 yrs / 60,000 miles. I experienced serious problems with electrics and electronics, AT gearbox (transmission conductor), steering rack (!!!), countless electrical surges and...lousy dealer service. Treat yourself with A NEW MB, BUT ONLY WITHIN WARRANTY !


Best Features

Looks, driving experience, pleasant for long haul, quality build (inside), excellent engine, good fuel economy


Worst Features

Drivetrain, auto gear box, electrics and electronics are shambles, pathetic quality of the water-based paints, dealership service from A-Z (the only good experience is provided by the receptionists...), maintenance costs, sell the company to BMW or Toyota (Lexus) :-)

2006 Mercedes-Benz C-Class C55 AMG 4dr Sedan (5.4L 8cyl 5A)


Review

I originally bought this vehicle because my wife would not let me buy a E39 M5 due to the manual transmission, so I had resigned myself to a life of commuting boredom without my beloved 3rd pedal. "At least I'll have the big V8 to listen to while I wait for the transmission to catch up to my right foot" I thought. Well, I was wrong. The AMG SpeedShift is extremely impressive in daily use; it is very rarely in the wrong gear and is tuned for an enthusiast driver. Sport mode is very entertaining and Comfort isn't a blatant sacrifice to the EPA mileage gods. This, coupled with the prodigious amounts of torque and deep exhaust note, make for an entertaining drive even in traffic.


Best Features

I never thought I would say it, but I really like the auto trans. I also like the engine, exhaust note, precise steering, high quality interior materials, and firm but comfortable suspension. The understated looks help you blend into traffic, at least until you floor it and can't hide the V8.


Worst Features

Don't bother with the nav system; it is very outdated and hard to use by today's standards. The sound system is average at best, unfortunately. Just turn it off and listen to the engine instead.

2006 Mercedes-Benz C-Class C350 Sport 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 6M)


Review

All I can say is this car is amazing. Very fast car and very smooth shifting (7G-Tronic Tranny). This car is a sleeper (don't expect it to be that fast). The sport model came in 7 speed auto and 6 speed manual. The car is able to beat and keep up with very fast cars. Beat - (G35 Sedan, G35 Coupe, 328, 330, ML500, A4). Very fun to drive and pretty rare.


Best Features

Power!!!!!!!!!!! The only car that comes near it is the IS350 and BMW 335.


Worst Features

Problem is that the c230 looks similar and people think it's a c230 and always try to race you or give you a hard time. They think you changed the badge to c350. Boy were they in a surprise.

Review

I purchased this car a couple of days ago. One word..."WOW." Performance was very surprising. The acceleration was great and is easy to handle. Very smooth. The sleek look for me is part of the appeal.


Best Features

Interior is well put togehter. Everything easily within reach.


Worst Features

Maybe a little more cabin room, but not a husge concern.
