2007 Mercedes-Benz C-Class Sedan C230 Sport 4dr Sedan (2.5L 6cyl 6M)


Review

This seems to be a reliable car with good gas mileage. The interior seems to have a lot of cheap material and the chrome is flaking off of the gear shift. The front cup holder(s) is cheesy. I like the separate lighting for the rear. I like that I can do most of the maintenance like oil changes, filters, brakes, without having to go to the dealership.


Best Features

Gas mileage, smooth shifting transmission, ease of maintenance.


Worst Features

Better cup holders, better "chrome" on the plastic parts, improved IR sensor on drivers door, better acceleration. This car doesn't do anything fast: accelerate, A/C motor, shift. Make the manumatic a real manumatic.

2007 Mercedes-Benz C-Class Sedan C230 Sport 4dr Sedan (2.5L 6cyl 6M)


Review

This car has well surpassed my expectations. It is a joy to drive and an excellent ride. I read mean reviews before purchasing and the negative things people had to say are bad opinions. The service on the car is 200 dollars, but it only needs it every 12000-13000 miles that is three synthetic oiol changes in a Chevy, do the math. No power at take off, seven speed automatic that you never feel shift, put your foot in it a little. By far the best car I have ever owned. Will update in six months.


Best Features

The Ride and Comfort. The feel inside. The customer service at the dealer. Knowing I own a Mercedes Benz.


Worst Features

None at this time.

Review

It is a great car. The seven speed automatic makes the car feel and drive like it has more than 201 HP. You will get better gas mileage with the transmission in "comfort mode". On our last trip, we averaged 30 mpg doing 70 to 75 mph. In city driving, we are averaging 25 mpg. Those that complain that the car does not drive good in the winter needs to change their tires to winter tires or all season tires. The stock Continental ProContacts are performance summer tires only and are not to be driven during the winter. The specs for the tires say, "Do not drive at or around freezing temperatures."


Best Features

Gas mileage, comfort for sports suspension and tires, sports car like handling, and the exhaust sound.


Worst Features

HID lights should be standard.

2007 Mercedes-Benz C-Class Sedan C230 Sport 4dr Sedan (2.5L 6cyl 6M)


Review

After 7 months no regrets on purchasing this car used instead of a new something else. Solid as a rock, handles like it's glued to the road. I've seen the mileage rating but I drive aggressively and get 25+ in mixed freeway/city driving. Top end impressive power but sluggish off the line. Great car loaded with features and very quiet ride.


Best Features

Comfort, handling, responsiveness, styling, auto climate control and wipers.


Worst Features

Better acceleration from a stop. iPod/mp3/bluetooth compatibility would be a nice touch. My wife has an 06 Scion TC that has connections fr these electronics but a year newer MB doesn't? What's up with that? Oh, and brakes wear way too quickly. 30k miles and new pads and rotors needed.

Review

Got a great deal on a CPO 07 C230 with only 10k miles. It seems there's a glut of off-lease cars on the market right now (not surprising considering the problems with brokerages & banks). Great interior and exterior, but I miss having a fold-down rear seat. I first thought it drove a bit larger than it really is. Then I drove it aggressively on a twisty road. Wow. Body roll is very well controlled, and grip is outstanding. Real-world acceleration is outstanding; the 7 speed runs to high rpms as required in sport mode. It has a long-travel throttle that makes it easy to drive sedately or aggressively, once you get used to it. Hwy mpg is much better than I expected based on EPA ratings.


Best Features

Quiet, solid feel, quality of materials, well-controlled body roll, lateral grip, sound system, good fuel economy (which actually appears to be a bit better at 65mph or so than at 60mph due to gearing - maybe it isn't in the highest gear @ 55-60?)


Worst Features

Make fold-down rear seat standard, not an option. Increase seat travel slightly for those of us with very long legs.
