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


Review

Just got my baby C 1 week ago. Man,
once I start the car, I don't want to
get out. A lot of power for a small
car, and the 2.3L eng. makes beauifull
sound...


Best Features

sun roof... BIG and nicely done. Transmittion... can get pretty agressive. Soild feel. Very supportive and nicely desiged seats.


Worst Features

Noise... especailly from the removeable HB cover. CD player should be standard equ. The seats make noise too, especially in hot day.

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


Review

Back three times for a vibration
Between 30 & 60 MPH, & dealer can't
correct problem, BAS-ESP warning came
on twice. First it was the computer
second time it was dirty contacts.
Phone had to be replaced approx. 3
months after my car was delivered.


Best Features

Voice activated phone & audio system, good looking car & good interior, one touch open & close windows & sunroof.


Worst Features

Stupid front cup holder & cruise control stalk. Memory mirrors lose memory.

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


Review

repairs so far - differential whine -
replaced p Gears; rear seals leaked -
replaced; 4 new shocks; OE Micehelin
sports dead after 9000 miles; replaced
computer; replaced CD; replaced
cupholder. Interior squeaks and
rattles will drive you nuts. Engine is
crudely loud and exhaust note is
tinny. Gear shift is notchy. However -
handles very well, has good power and
gets great gas mileage. My first and
likely last MB.


Best Features

Handling, power, mileage, warranty.


Worst Features

refinements to engine, improve overall build quality, retune exhaust, stop using Michelin tires, go to Japan and learn how to build a shift linkage.

2002 Mercedes-Benz C-Class C32 AMG 4dr Sedan (3.2L 6cyl S/C 5A)


Review

I ordered my C32 after having seen only
pictures of one from Europe, and after
having enjoyed my 1999 C43 so much that
I knew this new AMG was going to be the
cat's balls. I was a little
disappointed, the steering is decent
for a Benz, but it has a bit too much
understeer out the box. Living in
Boston, the car is very uncomfortable
on imperfect roads, it just doesn't
soak up bumps the way a Benz should.
It's also had a big handful of small
problems, too many for a Benz in fact.


Best Features

Nice broad torque curve, similar to the V8 but unfortunately lacks the nice exhaust tone. A blast to drive, especially on the highway when playing with M5's. I've only "lost" against my friend's 996 Turbo but thats not really a fair race.


Worst Features

Creaks and rattles should not appear so soon. The Comand system is an ancient, CD-ROM based white elephant. It's finally being replaced by a DVD version in 2004. And for heavens sake give me a friggin spare tire.

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


Review

CONS - Car pulls to right. Dealer & MB
have checked alignment and tires
several times and still no fix after a
year. Advise if you have similar
problem via edmunds.com review or e-
mail to ajt38ca@yahoo.ca. Similar
sunroof noise problem fixed by dealer
by removing roof liner & installing
foam sheet and silicon. Brakes spongy
& non-linear in feel. PROS - Good
looking especially in Paprika with lots
of looks from others; fantastic
interior ambience with panorama roof &
top quality leather ; excellent
interior materials, fit & finish. Both
better than A4 or X-Type. GENERAL -
Ride is firm. OK if you are sporty
driver, not if more comfort oriented.


Best Features

Excellent leather interior, materials, fit and finish. Panorama roof. Good looks. Quiet. Solid feel.


Worst Features

Fix the pull to right. Sport suspension SB optional for those who prefer it. Four wheel drive option for coupe. Seat back hits sun visor when pulled forward.
