2002 Mercedes-Benz C-Class C320 4dr Sport Wagon (3.2L 6cyl 5A)


Review

I've owned my 2002 C320 Sport Wagon for more than 6 years, and after owning over 125 cars in my 50+ years of driving, I can honestly say this has been one of my absolute favorite cars. It combines useful room inside (though the aerodynamic rear roof slope can intrude), excellent comfort, and absolutely outstanding fuel economy, and reliability, resulting is low cost of ownership in my case. The car just "fits" my typical stature (6 feet tall of average proportions), and is fatigue-free even after many hours of driving. If I have any gripe at all, it's the absence of Bluetooth for cellphone use (The car came with a factory supplied telephone that would now be unlawful to even use in motion.), and does not have aux inputs for audio devices, or a USB connection for digital media. It also lacks GPS navigation, though in honesty I prefer a stand-alone GPS because it can be updated at no cost. Fuel economy of 32mph highway and 26mpg suburban on regular fuel (Premium is recommended, but unless one lives in mountainous areas, or is a lead-foot, regular is just fine) is outstanding for the safety and comfort offered. In my 6+ years of ownership, the car cost me nothing in repairs (not a single parts failure), though I recently replaced a number of parts and did a transmission fluid change as a preventative measure figuring nearing 90,000 mi a new accessory belt, belt tensioner, water pump, and spark plugs, along with new coolant and transmission fluid were a sensible measure. The car still looks, feels, and handles like a new car, with no degradation as mileage has progressed.

2002 Mercedes-Benz C-Class C240 4dr Sedan (2.6L 6cyl 6M)


Review

Had lots of little quirk problems with this car, but overall it drove fairly nice and was comfortable. Definitely a timeless look. Electronics were always having some sort of problem. I recently upgraded to a 2005 and like it much better.

Review

Original owner. The dealer check up before the trip was $948. At 58,000 miles the transmission/torque converter has crashed suddenly without warning! Stranded 2,000 miles from home. The BB value is $2,500 to $4,000 ,but the repairs are going to be $7,500. Without the repairs the car is just scrap parts or a donation to a school's automotive program.

Review

This was a fluke purchase as found for sale and told hubby about it. Against my wishes he bought it. Well guess who is eating crow now? We had a bought of bad weather snow/ice that is not common to area. This 4matic beat my older stick 4wheel drive pick up on performance in bad road conditions. He said it was like a 4 wheel drive... now a believer what a great car.
