    2003 Mercedes-Benz C-Class - C 230 RWD Sedan

    Pros: active monitoring of mpg, operation time, miles left with current fuel, miles to next service, etc. - also great audio system

    Cons: partial power seat should be full power (once I'm used to it I probably won't be bothered by this)

    Advice: spend bucks on some options

    Great car, tight build, excellent handling, excellent power for a 4-cyl, amenities add to pleasant experience.

    2003 Mercedes-Benz C-Class - C 320 RWD Wagon

    Pros: Smooth Power, Ride. Keeping BMW far in RView MIRROR

    Cons: Only needs service every 10K miles

    Advice: Buy it used with Starmark 100K/7yr warranty..Skip C240s

    C320 Sportwagon is luxurious, fast, handles well and brakes hard with no dip. None of the harshness of BMW. Lack of maintenance is a plus. Couple of very minor problems were fixed promptly (and got an E-500 loaner to boot). Dealer treats customer's well. This small wagon has loads of power. Lots of airbags and safety features. The radio needs some work - little bass until its cranked up or have CDs with prominent bass. Would like to see AMG sportswagon variant. Best little car I've owned...approaches porsche in quality. Trumps audi(an overpriced VW) in every respect..Skip the c240. MB spends more on the C320 or above. Drove the C230Kompressor 4dr...was real fun to..

    2003 Mercedes-Benz E-Class - Base

    Pros: Styling

    Cons: the fell of the 'brake by wire' brake pedal

    Advice: Don't let the price disuade you. The way you feel driving a Mercedes has no comparision.

    Suspension, acceleration and styling are wonderful.

    2003 Mercedes-Benz C-Class - C 230 RWD Coupe

    Pros: New engine and sport suspension and 17in wheels

    Cons: exaust note needs more growl, needs ac outlets

    Advice: Buy the C230 Sport Kompressor and they will deal.

    We bought the C230 Sport Sedan with the new 1.8 all aluminum, intercooled, super charged (Kompressor) engine. The Fun To Drive Factor is a 10. With the distictive front and rear, the only cars out there that look similiar are other Benz's. We love the 17in wheels with low profile, high performance tires, this combined with the sport tuned suspension make for a fun dive.

    2003 Mercedes-Benz SLK-Class - Base

    Pros: easy top to get up or down... and looks of the vehicle

    Cons: size... could be a little larger

    Advice: buy it

    This is a very fast car. It handles well around curves. It is a car that is incredibly fun to drive. I was looking for a larger car, but I test drove this one and it made my heart come alive. The convertible is a breeze so to speak... with one quick push of a button you have a coupe and then a topless beauty. The car is also incredibly quiet on the highway. When the top is up... you will be very surprised. Enjoy!!!

    2003 Mercedes-Benz CLK-Class - Base

    Pros: Watching the roof open and close

    Cons: Accelerator needs a heavy push

    Advice: An awesome second car

    I ordered my car in 5/02 and received it in 9/02. It's by far the best car I've owned, and handles very well. The engine is very powerful, as are the brakes. The CLK is a very good looking car with the top up, and beautiful with the top down. It turns heads everywhere it goes. The back seat is very small, but can be used if necessary. This car makes me look forward to sunny days and nice weather. It's very solid, and relatively heavy for its size, giving it a very safe overall feeling. ABS,ESP and Brake Assist only add to this feeling.
