Good times don't last.

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


This was my first car. I'm in high school and even though I'm young I love and research cars nonstop. I have had my c230 coupe since 9/06 and it was my dream car until about a month ago. My sunroof cable broke and that was the only part that the extended warranty didnt cover. Less than a week later, my engine started shaking and the check engine came on. Took it in and there is a flaw with Mercedes and something in the cylinders can get stuck open and dont bet on your insurance/warranty place to cover anything. Cost for new cylinder: $5000. Too much maintainance, in shop too much, need a more reliable car so I'm selling. Overall, I love the car to death but not worth the time in the shop and hassle.

Best Features

Look of the front end, great sunroof and 2nd moonroof for the back seat. Kompressor kicks in and it's fun to drive

Worst Features

No CD player? Back end looks need to be improved. Need to be more reliable. If you can afford spending at least a couple grand a month to maintain it, then there is no problem.
