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


Got it instead of a loaded Passat.
Fell in love with the handling, the
pick up, and how quiet it is. Now that
I have had it for almost 6 months, the
true mass market to America is
rearing its ugly head. Mercedes cannot
seem to get the rattles fixed, the A/C
is spazzing out, the sunroof shade
sticks and sounds like a shotgun going
off when the spring pulls it away, and
the cupholder is already jamming up.
This is a great car performance wise
(quick, great cornering, and quiet),
but not worth the 31k that I spent. I
am probably going to sell it now
before the 2003's come out,so I can
get the best bang for my buck.

Best Features

quickness, quiet (minus rattles), cornering

Worst Features

fix the rattles (c'mon this is mercedes) my 83' 300D had less rattling in it, a/c st-st-st-stutters, better sunshade engineering, front load cd, get rid of the cheap cupholder and put in one that actually lasts longer than 5 months,
