2002 Mercedes-Benz C-Class Hatchback C230 Sports Coupe 2dr Hatchback (2.3L 4cyl S/C 6M)


Review

Overall this has been the car I
expected. Mercedes level design and
support. Several problems including
an oil leak have landed mine in the
shop several times. Several
electrical problems also (headlight
assembly, multiple bulbs, window
motor).


Best Features

Interior room, great for a hatchback. Comfortable for average size adults in the back (under 5'9" or so). Plenty of cargo room in the hatch.


Worst Features

Better seat adjuster location on models without power seats, they're hard to reach. Better location for power windows on driver side, also hard to reach.

2002 Mercedes-Benz C-Class Hatchback C230 Sports Coupe 2dr Hatchback (2.3L 4cyl S/C 6M)


Review

I purchased this car for my daughter to
take to college. The intention was to
get her a sporty fun car that would
have the vaulted Mercedes quality and
safety. I was convinced that Mercedes
would not fall victum to the dreaded
first production year quality issues
tha other brands have been plagued by.
Unfortunately the car has been a
resounding disapointment. In the shop
for repairs 7 times in 15 months is
rediculous. The fact that the car can
not be trusted has forced me to look
into replacing it. This is not a car
that I would trust with my daughters
safety as she travels back and forth to
college. I would not recomend this car
to anyone.

Review

Since 1991 I had two dodge stealths
because of the qualtity, the handling
and the winter performance (ah yes). I
live in Canada ... Finnaly I saw this
Mercedes C230 a couple of month ago.
Before I never even thought about
buying a Mercedes because of the old 20
years old look. Mercedes didn't change
its look since a while. However this
car is a beast. All new styling and
handling. The quality and desigh of the
inside perfect. I am tall and I have
enought space too. The radio is not
outstanding but it's still a good
quality. I don't recommend the soon
roof because even the demo cars had
problem with. Also the heating fan is a
little noicy.


Best Features

Hangling, Trip computer, ESP, 6sp manual, Front look, spacious, steering wheel gadgets.


Worst Features

Tail of the car, Heating fan

Review

I love my C230. I've had it since
Sept 2001 and it has performed
admirably. I put ~20,000 miles on a
my car a year (up to 37,000) as of
this writing and it's been great.
Service and support of the dealership
is top notch.


Best Features

Phone built into the stereo, the rain sensing wipers, and the huge sun roof


Worst Features

Stereo should support the MP3 format
