2006 Mercedes-Benz C-Class C230 Sport 4dr Sedan (2.5L 6cyl 6M)


This is my 2nd MB, the 1st 92'E300. My wife owns a '00 BMW 323 since birth. And before I purchased the C230, I test drove the new '06 BMW 325. The cockpit is very ergo for my wife & I, she's 5' 00" and I'm 5'10". In Automatic mode, from the start, the take off studders, however, in manual mode, the power is in your hands and I feel a smoother acceleration. Two driving modes, "cold" & "summer". When "cold" is engage, the car feels extra stable and driving feels safe. I didn't feel this w/ the 325.

Best Features

Key; sport suspension; intergrated garage opener; computer; auto sensing wipers; rear auto shade; heated seats warmer; surround sound stero; memory control seat; XM;

Worst Features

Dynamite the car, get it as quiet as possible; standard memory control seat for both passenger and driver; electric lumbar; Aux. input for Audio devices.. Ie. iPods: All these should be standard..
