"Entry-level" headache

2000 Mercedes-Benz C-Class C230 4dr Sedan


If you want luxury no other name can do it like MB. However what is there to a name if the vehicle doesn't live up to its prestige. I have owned my C230 for a year. It is an excellent daily driver but costly to keep prime. I have replaced the mass air flow sensor ($300 w/o labor), breaks twice (once w/ rotors all together $1300 w/ labor), and instrument panel computer ($expensive!). I am a cautious driver and maintain it well. Handles well at highway speeds, but the seats are tiring after 2 hours or so. This defeats the purpose of luxury. If you want a star on your hood look no further, but if you are looking for something behind the logo keep star gazing!

Best Features

Handling both high and low speed, good breaking, classic European look, trunk space, turning radius.

Worst Features

Reliability/cost of parts, flimsy cup holder, driver seat tiring, bells and whistles are disappointing, poor acceleration.
