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


What a car and what a change from the 2005 C230 and C240. The new 2.5l I6 is wonderful, smoother and quieter than the previous 240 and of course a whole lot different than the 230 4 cyl Supercharged. I took a 2005 C240 as a loaner during routine maintenance for comparison and you could not give me it compared to the 2006. Much quieter, smoother and the fuel economy. We are getting near 32MPG on the road at 75mph. The 7 speed takes some getting used to as you the driver seem a bit disconnected to it compared to the 5 speed in the 2005. This is our first MB and it won't be our last! Now if they would just bring out an ML320D!

Best Features

Driving and mileage.

Worst Features

Engine and transmission seem to "hunt" a bit starting out, like do I want first or second gear. Would like the option to disconnect the passenger mirror drop down in reverse, cute but don't like it.
