2007 Mercedes-Benz C-Class C230 Sport 4dr Sedan (2.5L 6cyl 6M)


Review

07 auto c230 , Obtained Ownership 59k in Oct. 2009 The carfax was clean, trans. replaced at 49k by MB. I took the car and was impressed for a 2.5L that it had some performance. I am aware of the balance shaft problem. I had a build date of SEPT 07, so I was in the clear. The transmission shifted smooth and responsive. I always changed the oil with Mobil Synthetic 0W-40. Solid suspension, smooth car, felt safe. Very comfortable car even on long and short drives. I would get about 17city, 33hwy and always filled it with 93 Octane. Lost it during Hurricane Sandy with 84k. Let me just clarify if you maintain the car with a good quality of gas and oil you shouldn't have issues.


Favorite Features

All the gadgets and buttons are perfectly detailed and in the right places. When the interior lights are on the cluster lights up beautifully and the rest of the interior has a nice color. I got a lot of great compliments from the car (black on black). The wheels on the 07 models are by far the nicest. Auto Transmission very responsive through out the gears. Tight suspension, very sensitive on the steering which I like. Interior was roomy. Steering wheel looked great. One of the coldest a\c's I've seen. I accelerated hard and the gears would change quick and smooth. The car would brake quickly. The car opened nice and sometimes I could hear the variable timing go on through the stock intake.


Suggested Improvements

The remote entry did not work right, I had to always be near the door. The module had to be replaced and it was expensive because its under the rear headliner. The car lacks an AUX input on the 07 models for the oem radio. There is no aftermarket solution unless you make your own custom wires and bridge them, or change the oem radio which as well wont ever match with the interior of the dashboard. Keypad on oem radio worthless because bluetooth unit is too expensive. Blower motor made medal to medal noises you can hear through the vents when it was on low after 2 years of owning it. Chrome around cupholder vanished after a year of owning it. Paint on bumpers peeled off easily.

Review

Bought 2007 used w/11k runs like a Swiss watch. This car has precision DNA from the quality of fit and finish to highly responsive handling. Replaced oil and tires....that's it. Value for $$ would be difficult to beat. When you look forward to running to the store for milk just to drive your car (even of you don't need milk) you know you have something special.


Favorite Features

Aesthetics, Handling and shear driving pleasure!

2007 Mercedes-Benz C-Class C230 Sport 4dr Sedan (2.5L 6cyl 6M)


Review

Bought this in 2007 with 8k miles. Love this car. handles well in sport mode, very peppy, great shifting with 7 speed. Superb mileage, over 30 highway. Comfortable and great in corners.


Favorite Features

Like the comfort, handling, mileage, and engine response. Shifting either manumatic on on its own, is great. Reasonable in snow with all-season tires.


Suggested Improvements

The traction control is a bit annoying, since I grew up with rear wheel drive in the snow and like to control the car myself.

Review

Initial impressions were good. But then came the problems. Here's a breakdown: 1. Cylinder head replaced due to valve going bad at, get this, 23,000 miles. 2. Left my wife stranded as the fuse box blew a circuit preventing the car from being started. This at just over 26,000 miles. Had to get the car towed to dealership. 3. Left me stranded when the cam positioning sensor went bad at 40,000 miles. Had to get the car towed to dealership. 4. Left me stranded AGAIN when the fuel pump went out a month later. Had to get the car towed to dealership. 5. Found out during this repair I would need to replace both front rotors as they were worn down. At 41,000 miles?


Favorite Features

Just traded in this piece of junk for a 2011 Honda Accord. Never will I buy a Mercedes Benz again. I'm mean are you serious?


Suggested Improvements

Everything.

2007 Mercedes-Benz C-Class C230 Sport 4dr Sedan (2.5L 6cyl 6M)


Review

Car drives great. Average around 30mpg on the highway. Chrome is coming off the gear shifter and cup holder. Cig. lighter does not work, door sensor for windows/sunroof does not work. Dealership fixed door sensor once already. Radio stopped working. Electronics on this car seem to be the weakest point, plus cheap interior parts. 1,000 miles before last oil change the check oil light come on, checked and was 4 qts low on oil. Car only has 43,000 miles on it and doesn't smoke and isn't driven hard. A/C smells like a used tampon on fresh air. I assume it's the fresh air filter. Had to replace both front fender liners - very easy to break.


Favorite Features

Separate rear light for pass. Rear windows roll all the way down. Smooth revving engine.


Suggested Improvements

Same size front/rear wheels/tires. Better interior materials.
