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


Broken sunroof within 3 days of purchase. Unable to close. Car received with difficulty opening cup rack in consol brought in for repair but, not fixed. Very unstable cup rack. Broken latches on console in 4 months of use prohibiting use of storage boxes. Brake drum rust in 4 months looks awful but I'm told by dealership is normal. Cannot move in slightest bit of snow as well as sliding into oncoming traffic in the highway intersection when stopped on incline. I was put in a very frightening situation and personally having the ability to drive every type of vehicle, I must state the car's performance with any unstable surface, is very poor. I am presently looking at a trade-in.

Best Features

Ride is super. Dry weather handling is an adventure. Comfort is good. Simplistic features hit the spot. Great commuter car in good weather.

Worst Features

Change console and cup holder. Move cup holder center to avoid collision with passenger seat as it opens to allow for rear entry passenger. Rust proof brake drums. Front seat belt access improvement. Different tires for all weather driving.
