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


When I picked up this car the salesman
said that I'd be getting all the build
quality and safety features of the
very expensives MB's. I
thought "sure". He was right. My
other two previous cars had both been
back to the dealer for repairs in the
first six months. Not this one.
There's just something about a
Mercedes that connects the owner to
it. No wonder people keep them for
years and hundreds of thousands of
miles. I'm still finding small
features now even after 6 months.

Best Features

Good steering and on center feel. A front driver just won't give that to you. Fantastic paint, even where you normally don't look. Fast but still gets good mileage. Premium is recommended, but I've found 89 to be fine. Fold down seats in back.

Worst Features

None. Can't beat it for the price!
