2004 Mercedes-Benz C-Class C230 Kompressor Rwd 4dr Sport Sedan (1.8L 4cyl S/C 6M)


Review

My 2004 C230K is my very first Mercedes-Benz
and I have no idea how I can ever go back to
regular cars. This car performs like no other I
have driven. It handles better then any
car in its class! Go test drive it and
see for yourself! It was love at first
sight. It is a little pricey but it is
worth every penny. I love my car so
much and I get so many compliments.


Best Features

Performance, Sound system, interior and exterior


Worst Features

I have not yet tested it in the snow, which I am dreading, but on dry roads it is amazing. It performs wonderfully, I would not change a thing except make the C230 Kompressor Sedan all Wheel drive. PLEASE!

Review

Buyer beware of this piece of crap! The
car has had nothing but problems - 3000
kms and it has been into dealer 5 times
now. They have had it for two weeks so
far. 1st they replaced the fuel
injectors, now the kompressor. Wrong
kompressor installed by factory -
really makes you wonder - Still not
fixed! Maybe the dealer is incompetent!
No loner offered. I would really think
twice before buying another Mercedes. A
real Lemon! High end Junk!


Best Features

None. Haven't been able to drive it much. Its been in the shop most of the time


Worst Features

Need to improve customer interface and take responsibility when they put out a lemon!!!!!!!! Can't see how they will survive if quality isn't improved! High end junk!

Review

Decent car: AMG did well on engine;
suspension.
My 1st automatic/"tiptronic
transmission - hate it!! Too boring.
Other: Tach way too small & should be
in center for this car. Indicator
light for speedo stays fixed - Dumb.
Gear selection indicator - way too
small - dumb. Self dimming rear view
mirrors - can't judge cars behind -
way too dangerous! & dumb. Elec
windows either go all the up or down;
have to take eyes off road to adjust -
dumb.
Car should CENTER BETTER on any road.
I thought this would be a fun sedan;
just too sedate (except speed) and
boring in just about every category.
Little character for the money. Plan
to give up.


Best Features

None really, except I like the fog lights to come on without headlights also being on (cool). My passengers like the ride.


Worst Features

2004 Mercedes-Benz C-Class C240 4MATIC AWD 4dr Sedan (2.6L 6cyl 5A)


Review

Handling is fantastic--Last winter it
handled better than the 4x4 pickup I
traded. I live the mountainous area of
N.E. PA so this was a plus. Just had
first free service. Great gas mileage
(31 highway). Only time it was back
to the dealer. Loved it so much just
bought the wife a E-320 4-matic two
months ago.
Only two gripes:
1- Location of CD Changer
2- Toy cup holder in front seat
belongs in a Chevette


Best Features

1- Touch up & down shift 2- Light package 3- Trip Computer 4- 4-Matic, Stability contol & braking are awesome


Worst Features

About time for a in dash CD changer Improve front cup holder How about a compass???

Review

very fast at high speeds, accelerates
up to 170 mph without being hesitant,
is smooth and quiet in normal
conditions, not as direct and
explosive as M 3, pretty much usable
as a family car, great brakes, feels a
little bit detached from street
surface, all in all the best
compromise for a father of three, who
still likes to go very very fast


Best Features

stability at high speed, roomy inside and small outside, efficient package


Worst Features

more and bigger cupholders, better acceleration from standstill, better responsiveness
