    2005 Mercedes-Benz C-Class - C230 RWD Sedan

    Pros: The styling and performance.

    Cons: No dip stick to check engine oil, I'm just 'old school'. The computer takes care of everything.

    Advice: Buy this car, for the same price as a common asian luxury car you can have a Mecerdes-Benz.

    Purchased for my wife, her first M/B. She loves it, with the tight suspension it really feels like a sport car. Supercharged 4 cyl engine has plenty of low end torque and the 5 speed auto with manual select option is great. Car has options like leather, sun roof, 6 disc cd changer power driver/pass seats, mirrors settings and other items programed in the driver's 'key'. There were no defects upon delivery and at 7500 miles it is still free of any problems.

    2004 Mercedes-Benz C-Class - C240 RWD Sedan

    Pros: the entire car! It's hard to pick favorite - it's 'so me'

    Cons: heated seats are optional

    Advice: Test drive a variety of vehicles to determine the feel you like. I like the German cars best.

    Just love it! Different look for MB - not the boxy type you're used to seeing. Acceleration is responsive, nimble handling, brakes well. Quality for a nice intro level to MB! Good safety features included as standard.

    2005 Mercedes-Benz C-Class - C230 RWD Coupe

    Pros: seats are very comfortable

    Cons: no real spare tire-donut spare which is worthless

    Advice: think about what you will do if you blow a tire in the middle of nowhere

    Car is quick and comfortable and safe but the tires are different sizes. Hence the only spare is a donut. It's good for a few miles but worthless on a long trip. A replacement tire is extremely difficult to obtain; you have to get it directly from Mercedes-Benz and getting Mercedes to honor the tire warrantly is VERY difficult. In other words, this is not a touring car. If you have a blowout you are in real trouble.

    2004 Mercedes-Benz C-Class - Base (A5) C320 RWD Sedan

    Pros: Handling on slick service

    Cons: Front wheels brake dust

    Advice: C320 4Matic is the ultimate compact/midsize car - it is expensive, but worth it!

    C320 4matic is the best small car I have owned. It has a powerful engine, solid body, solid interior and great handling on slick surface. I feel safe and secured driving this car.

    2005 Mercedes-Benz C-Class - C240 RWD Sedan

    Pros: electric adjusting, memoryseats soooooo comfortable- feel like recaro racing seats

    Cons: window controls are low on the door, sometimes difficult to reach

    Advice: get the stereo upgrade, and electric seats, and definitely metallic paint !

    fun , sporty car to drive, with all wheel drive a little slow off the start, but plenty of pep on the highway. responsive, comfortable, and quiet inside. definitely get the stereo upgrade speakers - sounds like a concert hall!! loved the extra typical mercedes features rearview mirrors adjust to view curb on back up, auto up windows,seats etc when exit and enter seats. definitely get the electric seats. standard wood interior/leather seats more than comfortable and luxurious. metallic paint is so gorgeous the car glitters constantly , a true head turning car !soooo happy with this car!!

    2005 Mercedes-Benz C-Class - C230 RWD Coupe

    Pros: Style

    Cons: lak of off the line power

    Advice: Drive this car in stop and go traffic before buying it.

    Great car. I got my 230 Sport Sedan in September and I love it. Looks great and drives wonderfully. The new updated look turns heads eveywhere. The car needs more low end power but at higher RPMs the motor is very responsive. I would recommend this car to anyone looking for style, quality and good gas milage. So far, I have been getting 26 miles a gallon.

    2005 Mercedes-Benz C-Class - C230 RWD Sedan

    Pros: The tighter suspension and 17' Inch tires & Rims. This car is sooooo tight!

    Cons: Honestly

    Advice: Don't underestimate the quickness of the C230 Kompressor Supercharged Engine.

    I traded my 2002 C320 Sport Sedan for the 2005 C230 Kompressor Sport Sedan. The C230 has a smaller engine than my C320 did - but I can't tell! They have made so many improvements in this model from the wheels, new sport seats, tighter suspension, sport steering wheel, chrome brake and gas pedal, re-styled interior, new stylish gauges... shall I go on? I test drove and Audi A4 Ultra Sports Edition 1.8t Turbo and a BMW 3 Series and realistically they can't touch this car. True sports machine. Want to have fun driving? Buy this car!
