Love it - but not perfect
By WilliamV on


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


Overall I love this car. Performance
is very good, handling great, interior
suprising roomy for the size. More
than that, it makes you want to drive
it - often and hard. Eats up highway
miles, great fun to toss around.

The ride is a little stiff. Steering
is stiff. Controls are stiff. Not
bad, but an adjustment if you're coming
from a more pampering car.

One serious complaint - more rattles
and squeeks from the roof area that I
would expect from a Mercedes.

Best Features

Auto transmission - best I've ever driven. Acceleration. Bose stereo rocks. Sun roof is great. Tearing out of a driveway in the rain, feeling the Stability Control grab and put you back on line.

Worst Features

Cup holders are lame. Trunk slightly too narrow to fit golf clubs (you have to fold a seat forward). Owners manual won't fit in glove compartment if CD changer installed.
