This is a Mercedes engine in a Chrysler
By ReverendSmoke on


2003 Mercedes-Benz C-Class C230 Rwd 4dr Sport Sedan (1.8L 4cyl S/C 6M)


Ever since Mercedes and Chrysler merged, the quality of Mercedes has dropped. This car can hit 150MPH (track) without tossing and turning. Acceleration is excellent. Fuel economy is amazing, even when driving city very fast, I average 17mpg or even 19mpg. The downside is the interior - cheap nasty plastic(of American design). No more German luxury. You dont realize it because you are excited about your new 'Benz'. After a few days you start to realize that this is not a Benz. A bBenz is about luxury. If you can't enjoy your Benz and show off to your friends, then what good is it? Exterior design is beautiful. Interior is terrible. Parts are ridiculously expensive. And they wear so fast and break

Best Features

Fuel economy is much better than even those slow hybrids that claim to save gas.

Worst Features

Interior - But this car only if it is offered to you for like $7K or less, so you can spend like $3K to upgrade the interior to something aftermarket and more comfortable and pleasing to the eye. The engine also gives too many alerts - windshield washer fluid, coolant level, etc.. It is a headache.
