Pros: Breaks and handling.
Cons: Seat confort.
Advice: Check into the electric problems.I own a 2002 one, great car. It has some electrical prfoblems. Álso fuel injection or filtering problems.
Pros: Super smooth drive!
Cons: Holding on to the trunk to close because I don't want to spot the car by putting my hand on the top.
Advice: Buy one it is worth the expense! I love it!!The acceleration has 'zip'. The gear changes are smooth, barely felt. The music system sounds superb. The look of the car is elegant.
Pros: Road hugging handling
Cons: Voice control audio
Advice: If you can find one of these to test drive you must take advantage of the opportunity.After driving a 330 hp BMW M3 and the Mercedes C32 AMG there was no choice but to buy the C32. It excels in power, handling and luxury categories and has the quality of Mercedes AMG engineering to back it. I have owned the 240 HP BMW M3, the 300 hp Lexus GS400 and now own the C32 AMG. This is truly the best of the breed.
Pros: Child safety locks.
Cons: The braking system.
Advice: Buy that which has a voice, depicts GLORY and considers your safety the most.It is depictive of the Glory, Mercy And Faithfulness Of God Upon A man's life and destiny- A glorius Chariot of God Indeed. For the Lincoln Navigater buy i proudly for my sweet mother but this S55 AMG Sedan tells me; 'by the Grace Of God I shall live long and always be very Prosperous even as my very Soul Prospereth', TO GOD BE ALL THE GOD. THANK YOU DAIMLER-CHRISLER.
Pros: The Xenon Headlights were a great touch.
Cons: The rear sunshade that commonly went on strike.
Advice: Shop AroundWhen I test drove this car, I immediately fell inlove with it. It was silver with ash leather. So I found no reason why I shouldn't buy it and add it to my collection.
Pros: Panorama Roof.
Cons: Special order takes time!
Advice: Must get the Panorama roofI been trying so many cars but C230 is my favorate fun car to own at the moment. Powerful, quite interior and comfortable drive. Not a leather fan, but moonroof is a must in this car.
Pros: Beauty. The car is unusually good looking.
Cons: Space. Cramped even for a convertible.
Advice: Be sure it fits your needs before you buy it. If it does, you will love it.First impression is that there is substance behind the car's incredible beauty. Great engine, brakes, handling. Clever touches with the tilt down in reverse rearview mirror. Good stereo [put the top down, and listen to the engine!]. Smart top mechanism. Little nosedive/tailsquat, body roll is under control. Suspension is well damped and firm. This is a GT, not a sports car. But storage and hauling capacity is in the near sports car range, meaning nearly non-existent. If hauling more than two people is something you do regularly, keep looking, this isn't the car for you. One golf bag is it--you have to meet your playing partner at the course. So consider carefully before committing to a long term relationship. This is a special car, with a distinct personality, in a world with mostly personality-less cars. It will thrill the right owner, but compromising isn't something the CLK does gladly. The backseats are for your briefcase, or a gym bag, or an adult you really don't like. It doesn't squeak and rattle yet, but it probably will. If it doesn't it'll be the first convertible I've spent time in that didn't. But the car is designed to make grins and it does that very well. A sunny day, top down, engine growling, curvy, hilly, smooth road, wow! And if you are stuck in your morning commute, you can dream about a sunny day, top down...you get it. And if traffic is a drag, wait for your opening and jump on it, this car will zoom. It is a gas to drive, it will make you forget about your overdue monthly report. I have an SUV for hauling things, this car is for hauling me. It is one of the most beautiful cars I have ever seen. With the top up, it looks very good--reminiscent of the coupe. With the top down, it's stunningly gorgeous. In my first few days of ownership, I find myself standing in the garage smiling at its lines. It's a pretty thing.
