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


In August 2004 I got a 2005 230 Kompressor after last having a MB 11 years ago (300E)--wow have they gotten fun. It's red, fast and really fun. Interior is well done. Exterior is as sporty as anything on the road. Technology is first class. But it's got warranty issues: console lid broke, paint is chipping and the CD player just ate my AC/DC CD! Dealership has been good though. For a guy in his 50's, I can't imagine anything I'd rather have for my daily driver.

Best Features

Best thing is that Kompressor -- it really takes off. Also like the styling, especially the wheels. Low-profile tires and sport cladding. And oh yes, a good value for the money.

Worst Features

Better paint. Better console engineering. A CD player that doesn't eat my CD's
