2005 Mercedes-Benz C-Class C230 Kompressor Rwd 4dr Sport Sedan (1.8L 4cyl S/C 6M)


Review

The C230 Sports Sedan that I own is an amazing vehicle for its price. In its class, nothing compares overall. Mercedes introduced a new nano-technicological paint which virtually eliminates scratching, and looks great as the car ages. Even chipped paint is a rare sight. The exterior of this car is really a nice sight. 17 inch alloy wheels, an AMG ground effects package, with chrome exaust tips, and even a supercharger. makes this car, second to none.


Best Features

Xenon Lights, 17 inch rims, Cockpit style gauges, crossed drilled rotors, supercharged engine, best and easiest sport shift.


Worst Features

The Harmon Kardon Stereo/Navagation System and Surround Speakers is not as good as the previous Bose System. The Navagation is great, but the sound coming through the speakers at higher volume levels is limited.

2005 Mercedes-Benz C-Class C230 Kompressor Rwd 2dr Sport Coupe (1.8L 4cyl S/C 6M)


Review

After driving SUV's for years, I recently purchased C230 coupe. Our oldest daughter had just turned 16, with the additional car for our daughter I decided to trade in the last of my SUV's for this Mercedes. I can only say that as a mother of 3, driving had been limited to vehicles that would be large enough to haul all our kids, their friends and whatever else we could squeeze in :). When I was a in my 20's I bought what I could afford, then came the kids-practically was the focus- now-I drive for FUN! I do have a problem though, our 16 year old wants me to "share"..


Best Features

Fun to drive.

2005 Mercedes-Benz C-Class C240 4MATIC AWD 4dr Luxury Wagon (2.6L 6cyl 5A)


Review

We've had this car for 7 months now, and it is our all time favorite vehicle. Elegantly designed and mechanically superb, we have driven it with pleasure and in comfort on snowy roads and in Washington's steam-bath summer. The fuel mileage is not great (about 19 mpg), but that seems to be an inevitable tradeoff for cars of this class.


Best Features

Beautiful styling, interior and exterior. Excellent handling on the road, with the signature Mercedes tight turning radius. We have a 10-year old C220, and most of its flaws have been ironed out in this 2005 model.


Worst Features

Like its C-class predecessors, this one has a very thick center post area that makes rear/side viewing less than great.

More leg room in the back seat.

Review

Other than the radio needing to be replaced, the car has been flawless to date. Fun, quick, respectable, efficient. Everything you could want out of a car.


Best Features

Aggressive look and handling.


Worst Features

Leather extended to the entire face of the seat (only middle section is without full leather option). Radio performance is below average.
