Great Car!
By Andyd987 on


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


I wanted somthing somewhat luxurious,
sporty, comfortable and partical. This
car fills the requirements almost
perfectly. My car is a gourgeous bright
red 6-spd with the stereo upgrade,
heated seats and handlamp washers as
the only options.

Even after owning the car for a year
and one-half, I get almost as many
looks as I did in the C3 Corvette I
sold to make room in the garage for the

I get 27 MPG highway and 19 MPG mixed,
mostly city.

My experience with this car has been
trouble free.

When my 17 year old every day use VW
GTI expires this car will replace it
and I am sure will last even longer.

Best Features

I especially like the car's road feel, engine sound and sound system. Running up through the gears or downshifting a couple or three gears to pass is very satisfying to the senses.

Worst Features

This car should come standard with an in-dash CD player. One of the improvements Mercedes made for 2003 was to improve gas mileage by decreasing engine displacement to 1.8 litres. Mercedes now has a V-6 option for the car. I like 212 HP V-6 and the 31/23 MPG of the 4.
