A Tiger on the Road
By sgbmedia on


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


I bought my 2005 C230K at 67,000 mi for $13,000 three years ago and just turned 165,000 mi and am very pleased with it. I drive between Phoenix, Los Angeles and Las Vegas weekly and it has really never let me down. Plenty of kick from the supercharged 1.8L 4 cyl engine and the slap shift auto trans is great although it tends to over rev when putting it through extreme shifts at 70mph+.

Best Features

The 1.8L V4 engine with 6 speed auto trans.

Worst Features

Better quality front brakes. The stock brakes need to be totally replaced @ 30,000 mi including rotors.
