2003 Mercedes-Benz C-Class C230 Rwd 2dr Sports Coupe (1.8L 4cyl S/C 6M)


I have 15K on it now and have enjoyed
it. However, since my first service at
10K I have now:
1. Used a quart of oil
2. The rear sunshade had to be replaced
3. A switch on the steering wheel went
4. developed some creaks.
I like drivng the car and the looks, I
just hope it holds up.

Best Features

I like the performance in the mid range, it doesn't have the low rpm "grunt" I would prefer. It has great gas milage and the sunroof is excellent. The interior is comfortable and well laid out. The rear seats are seldom used and when folded give ample space.

Worst Features

Quality control! A v6 would be nice if they could keep the cost down. An in-dash CD player is a must.
