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


Review

We really like the car. It has good power and looks great. The star on the hood gets respect. Don't plan on having this car be your family car. It's just too small. Great as a single persons car or a married couple. The car has never left us stranded but has been in the shop often. We're going to trade down to a Chevy. We're also concerned about the cost of repairs after the warranty expires.


Best Features

Great engine, great brakes, great agility.


Worst Features

More space

Review

The Benz has handled well in all driving conditions. The OEM tires from Continental were the only disappointment performance wise because of the short duration (27000 miles). Otherwise, awesome for a 4 cyl.


Best Features

Integrated steering controls, blue tinted windows & sunroof.


Worst Features

Cup holders.

Review

10/1/04 I got involved in the worst car of my life. I didn't realize that the car was as small as it really is. The kid keeps kicking the back of the front seat. Mileage could be better. But the worst thing is the car. At 18g miles the tranny went. Poof gone. At 28g the tranny went again. Then a dozen other things kept breaking. Then to drive the nail home the engine started burning oil. I clocked the car burning oil at one qt per 1500 miles. The dealership in Greenwich basically said lets keep a eye on it. Ya , lets keep a eye on it. I called Mercedes headquarters and lodged my complaint. They are keeping a eye on it also. Next stop is the lawyer. Maybe he can keep a eye on it.


Best Features

The sun roof

Stop making the car

Review

I bought this car certified from dealership with the extra year warranty and remainder of factory maint. I bought sight unseen over internet but had test drove one locally. It's black with black which I think is a great color for this car. First impressions: Roomier than looks on outside. Great pickup, esp when you use the manual shift feature that comes with automatics. Fun to drive and handles corners and curves like a bimmer. It's definitely has 'riding on rails' feel. It came with performance tires and 17 inch rims which are amazing on drive smooth roads. The problems are snow and bumpy roads. All and all am happy every time I get in and start her up.


Best Features

Leather heated seats, panorama roof, exterior from front, auto-dimming mirrors, handling is amazing.


Worst Features

First, cassette is a wasted feature (like who has tapes anymore). Rear visibility not great with side mirrors. Wish it had iPod connection. The ride is a bit rough and noisy on bumpy highways.
