Purchased in August 2003. Previously
owned a 2000 Audi A6 and never thought
I'd find a car with a better ride and
handling, but the C240 4Matic wagon fit
the bill quite nicely. Great styling,
comfortable interior and QUIET!
Fantastic handling and control.
Solid handling - this car hugs the
road, and safety features (8 air
bags). The automatic lights, and rain-
sensing wipers are nice, functional
features to have.
Avg. gas mileage is 23 - 24 MPG. Not
bad, but a moderate boost in fuel
economy would be nice. Should come
standard with full power seats instead
of partial power/manual adjust.
I couldn't be happier..I was concerned
about "get up and go"..what a joke that
concern was. With little effort it
engages and it reminds me of the star
wars.. warp speed!
the only thing I would do to imporve
it.. is make the seats a little more
luxuriest. Mineis loaded so I have the
leather..but would like to see a
little "cushier" seats. IF you are able
to purchase from Calabasa Motors DO.
the service is beyond good.. it doesn't
matter how small the issue is.. you are
sent way with a loaner, no questions
2003 Mercedes-Benz C-Class C230 Rwd 4dr Sport Sedan (1.8L 4cyl S/C 6M)
I "unfortunately" have the automatic
transmission, and that has taken some getting
used to. Overall though the car is awesome
looking. I have never gotten so many
complements from strangers on what a nice
looking car it is. The color is "orion blue", and I
recommend you look at it on any car on the lot.
I know that SLK's come in the color, but have
not seen it on anything else. The tire/wheel
package on the sport model really sets apart
the grandma 240 and the 230. Performance for
me is adequate, these 189 do just fine, and at
30mpg highway doing 80... not bad either.
wheel/tire package for sure! I would
recommend the upgraded stero package if you
like your music.
