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


Review

This is a great car and a lot of fun to
drive. Excellent handling, very solid
feel, wide doors, surprisingly
spacious. Also very good the controls
built into the steering wheels.

The only real down side so far is that
the sunroof is very squeaky; I hope the
dealer can fix it at the first
service.


Best Features

Great handling Precise steering Wide doors Steering wheel controls Spacious Performance Sunroof (except the squeaky part) It's a Mercedes


Worst Features

Squeakiness of sunroof Cup holder and cup holder placement (better in front of gear shift, move gear shift a little back) Position of window controls Auto-close for sunroof

Review

In shop for warranty work @ 7000,
12000, 17000 miles and heading back @
28000 miles. Factory tires wore out at
22000. Sunshade and sunroof problems.
Noisy brakes. No power brakes upon
cranking. Items replaced so far: front
sun visors, wipers, steering wheel
switches, vent grille, front & rear
sunshade, cd player. I have a BMW 325
with 33000 miles, tires still in great
shape, NO PROBLEMS EVER! When I asked
dealer why tires were wearing so fast
and so irregular, they stated this car
will just do that! Would have traded
long ago but obviously dealers know
this is a CHEAP MADE car. Resale/
trade value is horrible.

Review

Excellent vehicle--great value for a
MB! It's fun to drive, smooth riding,
and fuel efficient. The service plan is
top-notch--everything from oil changes,
wiper blades, tire rotations/balances,
belts, car washes, etc is included. I
would definitely recommend the C230
Kompressor to anyone who wants to get
into a Benz for ~30K...


Best Features

panorama sunroof, supercharged engine


Worst Features

seat recliner hard to reach

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


Review

Wow, I NEVER would have thought I would
be rolling in a Benz in high school!
But hey hey, look at me now! This car
is indiscribable, for 17k (yep, that's
right!) this thing is like
unbelievable. I went shopping with my
parents in Jacksonville, FL for my
first car. I had my heart set on a 02
or 03 Lexus ES. Well, we decided to
look over at the Benz dealer right next
to the Lexus dealership and just my
look, I found a black Benz C240 sedan
just waiting for me. I was in love! I
found the car was a left over 02 demo
with 10k miles on it. So far the car is
the best ever and it sure beats the
normal Civic or Corolla by a long shot!


Best Features

Everything...it's a BENZ! It's mine, and I am only 17! Very reliable and makes me feel very special to drive.


Worst Features

NOTHING!

2002 Mercedes-Benz C-Class 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.
