    2003 Mercedes-Benz C-Class - C230 RWD Coupe

    Pros: The sport tunned suspension

    Cons: Lack of a rear window wiper

    Advice: get the manual transmission

    I can sum it up in the slow purr of the car while idle, the feel on the gear nob as you get going and the inertia holding you as you shift up the gears. Excellent!

    2003 Mercedes-Benz CLK-Class - Coupe

    Pros: Handling

    Cons: Quality

    Advice: If style and handling are more important than reliability, get one

    The car is beautiful and handles very well. Comfort was below average until Goodyear tires were replaced with Michelin..at our expense. With the new tires road noise dropped dramatically and comfort improved to C+. Unscheduled service in 40,000 miles has been TWICE that needed by our Cadillac with 110,000 miles and SEVEN times our Nissan with 242,000 miles. The Nissan gave up the ghost...after being hit by a Mack truck.

    2003 Mercedes-Benz C-Class - Base C320 RWD Sedan

    Pros: Dashboard computer

    Cons: The doors (swing too wide

    Advice: The C2 package is usually sufficient

    Having driven with 168 hp for a while, 215 hp is a marked difference especially on highway. It is slightly bigger than a BMW 3 series and smaller than a 5 series and perfect for a small family. The trunk size is impressive for small sedan. The AWD makes for great performance in winter in New York. There is no need for snowtires. The color scheme is great and the leather and stero qualities are fitting for a luxury sedan. C240 is underpowered and E320 is only sligtly bigger but with a substantial price increase. All in all, dollar for dollar, it is a great purchase.

    2003 Mercedes-Benz C-Class - C230 RWD Coupe

    Pros: Awsome look, great drive

    Cons: back seat room

    Advice: Get the premium package but forget the wheels.

    First of all its looks great. And its size is decieving. It drives like a sports car and handles beautifuly. the super charged engine is more than powerful enough considering its size and gas milage is well over 30 on the freeway. Back seat room is acceptable. Its not great but fine for any drive that isn't cross country. I'm 6'2' and fit just fine.

    2002 Mercedes-Benz C-Class - C230 Coupe

    Pros: Styling

    Cons: Automatic climate control fan is set too high

    Advice: Get the leather, panorama sunroof and forget the wheel package, the car handles well without it and buying expensive soft tires will cost a lot.

    Check out European delivery; MB gives you a factory tour and two nights in a luxury hotel of your choice in many European locales for no more than the price you pay locally. Driving the car through Italy was great! Shipped over in about 3 weeks after drop-off, no hassles.

    2003 Mercedes-Benz C-Class - Base C320 RWD Sedan

    Pros: climate controlled storage.

    Cons: Build Quality

    Advice: Don't let your heart rule, stick with an Acura TL

    Car Looks Great, many annoying problems and trips to dealer. Groaning suspension, squeaky spongy seats. Pricey for a small car.

    2003 Mercedes-Benz SLK-Class - Base

    Pros: Retractable Hardtop

    Cons: The doors are very long!

    Advice: Buy it! In comparison with the competition it definitely gives the most car for the buck.

    This is an amazingly fun car to drive. Mercedes knew exactly what they were doing when they designed this car, it has all the right elements of a roadster (especially if you get the V6 or AMG). I have had many other roadsters, and this is by far the best one yet. And with the built-in hardtop you have both a coupe and covertible, all in one car. If you have ever owned a sports car this is something that you always had to decide between. This is a great car, I will be keeping this one for a while!
