Not Bad Entry Level Luxury Car
By Rupert Butterworth on


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


This isn't a bad little car. Like others have mentioned it is NOT comfortable for the long haul. Seats are very firm up front and the kids complain about being cramped in the rear. The hesitation from stop is scary. Have almost been creamed a few times because of the hesitation. Those issues aside--fuel mileage is in the upper 20's on the highway, high teens in the city; It's much quieter than our old car- a 2002 Honda Accord. This isn't a bad car, just some quirks.

Best Features

We like the dual zone climate control; seat warmers, 4Matic all wheel drive, 5 speed auto transmission with auto shift; speakers aren't too bad either; it's supprisingly quiet at higher speeds (around 80-100mph).

Worst Features

Cup holders? Ditch the flimsy after thought cup holder, fix the acceleration hesitation from a stop-- it's scary! Make a six disc in dash CD player standard!
