Sexy Little Money Pit
By Virginia Donkey on


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


I purchased my 2002 C230K in May of 05 as a certified pre-owned, so it came with an extended warranty as part of the deal. The car has been back to the dealer 5x since May.2 of the visits was just small stuff.1 visit was for the radio not working when you turn on the rear deforst. Dealer replaced back window, all is well. 2 visits were for the A/C system. Dealer can't find the leak, but it does.Maybe I need a new dealer!. This car performs very well and is bigger on the inside than it seems. I have yet to find another car that has the same amenities that performs as well and gets the same gas mileage.Buy the extended warranty, you will need it.This is a car that you want to love but can't.

Best Features

Front end, solidness in doors (it sounds safe). 8 air bags help too *Gas Mileage (ave 24mpg) *kick and sound of supercharger *interior room *Mercedes legendary safety

Worst Features

They don't sell this car in the U.S anymore, but the car got better every year. I just happened to buy a first year car
