    2002 Mercedes-Benz S-Class - S600

    Pros: The Power close trunk.

    Cons: The sound system.

    Advice: Be ready to change the stereo system and the rims.

    This is the most brillant car ever made in the history of Merecedes-Benz!

    2002 Mercedes-Benz SLK-Class - Base

    Pros: Definitely the power convertible hard top.

    Cons: I don't have time to drive it as much as I would like to.

    Advice: Get the AMG sport package; the 17' wheels and low profile high performance tires really add to the handling.

    This is an amazing car; what fun to drive. It handles as well as a BMW 330 or Z3 and has a much more comfortable ride. You can easily turn corners at 30 mph in 3rd gear. The acceleration is great (0 to 60 in 6.6 sec.); if you have an extra $10K you can spring for for the SLK32 AMG to cut 1.8 sec. off. With the voice activated phone, you can also control the CD, radio and tape by voice command. The best feature is the power hard top. With the top up, it looks and rides (very quiet) like a coupe. With the top down, its a typical two-seater convertible. It takes only 25 sec. to lower the top. With the top up you have a full 9.5 cubic feet of trunk space.

    2002 Mercedes-Benz C-Class - C320 Sedan

    Pros: control console in the streering wheel

    Cons: user interface of the Navigation system

    Advice: Do get a COMMAND navigation system, it's very helpful

    Performance, accelaration are great. I am impressed and enjoyed with the highly computerized control console. Suspension is very comfortable. The COMMAND navigation system still has room for improvement, especially in the user interface. Overall, the car is great, very cool, and worths the brand.

    2002 Mercedes-Benz C-Class - C230 Coupe

    Pros: six speed transmission

    Cons: instrument cluster: no temp guage and small tach

    Advice: get the sun roof and six speed

    Great gas mileage with the six speed transmission. The hatchback feature is great for carrying everything from bikes (we can carry two without removal of any bike tires.) German engineering is exceptional. If you drive in snow you must get snow tires (four of them.) The car handles very well.

    2002 Mercedes-Benz E-Class - Base E320 RWD Sedan

    Pros: Styling

    Cons: I have not found any inefficiencies!

    Advice: Buy the 2002, the 2003 is restyled like the C and S class!

    The E320 Special Edition is the nicest car I have even driven. It is smooth and luxurious. Do not be mistaken, this is not a baby boomers car, it is perfect for all ages. I am 30 and this car does it all for me!

    2002 Mercedes-Benz C-Class - C240 Sedan

    Pros: Comfort & the way it drives

    Cons: That its not a convertible :(

    Advice: Deal! The MB dealer I dealt with was hungry. Got the car for invoice!

    Love the new look of the c240. Its not the old conservative look of the Mercedes my mom drove.

    2002 Mercedes-Benz C-Class - C32 AMG Sedan

    Pros: Speed, Incredible performance and Brakes too. We accelerated smoothly over 3 miles without a full throttle push and at 140 the C32 was still pulling strong...but the road was running out. Be back after the next oil change and the break in period.

    Cons: A little small - when you come out an S-Class - not enough room to go fast...

    Advice: Look at GS430, M3, Infiniti and the Cadillac CTS... Only the CTS for its pricing came close. The others were just so expensive it was hard to justify. Wonder about the new Maruader by Lincoln but Black not in Texas...

    After buying my C32, all I have to say is does anyone want to buy a: 2001 Corvette Convertible, Brilliant Silver with Black convertible top, Gray Sports Seats leather interior, 2,900 miles of weekend driving - perfect, Loaded, Bose CD sound, 4 speed Automatic (incredibly good gas mileage), Heads up display of instruments, Mid level suspension, Chrome wheels, Memory Package and more. Mobil 1, 3/36,000 warranty, $54k new, sell for? No stories, damage or insurance repairs, Trade for something weird. This car is incredible. I never drive the Corvette anymore. I go to eBay and C32's often and consider buying another???
