Thanks...but no thanks by An MSN Autos Consumer on 11/30/2010. Trim: 2003 Mercedes-Benz C-Class C230 Sports Coupe, Owned 7 years.
Pros: I like the styling and fuel economy is OK. The quality of materials is very high and the car is comfortable for two. Surprisingly little power for a 3.2 liter engine, but the handling is great.
Cons: So EXPENSIVE to maintain and repair. Many mechanical problems (electrical issues galore, brakes, tranny suspension), as well as accessories. Check the panoramic sunroof prior to purchase, they are unreliable and pricey to fix ($2K+).
Overall review: Owned 7 years and it was fun, but will never get a benz again.

The perfect car by The almost-car-fanatic from Chicago on 06/26/2008. Trim: 2003 Mercedes-Benz C-Class C230 Sports Coupe, Owned 2 years.
Pros: A nearly perfect sport-practical compromise. This vehicle is a joy to drive. It has a very solid feel and precision of handling. All functions are enhanced; for instance: Acceleration -The supercharged engine responds in a smooth and satifying way; Breaking -has electronic assist; Trunk space -Excellent plus back seats folds flat; Sun-roof - the whole top is shaded glass and the view is panoramic; Gar mileage -I have been able to achieve 27.8 mpg combined; Safety -6 airbags; Windows and roof control -This system is very smart: you can lock them opening and closing, all respond to the re-circulating button, and to the remote control. I love this 'perfect' little car for my commute to work.
Cons: There are very few cons, and one is the limited visibility thru the back window because of the very slanted glass, but in reality it is not too bad.
Overall review: The reliability has been excellent, but because I bought it used (35K miles) I purchased an extended warrantee. I would strongly recommend buying this car with an extended warrantee, because the systems are so advenced and expensive.

Have driven 90,000 miles in One by CoorsMan from Akron on 03/13/2004. Trim: 2003 Mercedes-Benz C-Class C320 Sports Sedan, Owned less than 1 year.
Pros: An incredible solid feel that I did not have with my last BMW ( an M3) Great brakes, good seats ( they feel too firm at first but after a day in them you'll understand that's the idea) Exterior styling is very nice, I like the family resemblence across the brand. Safety. Gas mileage is nearly 30 at a steady 60MPH
Cons: the 240 could use another 25 horse and the 320 needs another 10-15. Like most German cars, you have to order a "package" when all you wanted was an "option". 320 needs more to remove it from the 240 visually. cup holder is great to look at but don't trust it for a minute! Maybe another 12v outlet
Overall review: Well what do you buy for mid 30's that offers the styling, safety, and cache of the Benz? The dealer treats me like royalty every oil change ( 10,000 apart ) They jump to get things done when there is a problem and after 88,000 miles in the C240 and now a 2003 C320 ( horsepower was the only reason I moved up ) I see me driving the newer one up to nearly 90,000 also. Heh, there's a reason people say something is "built like a Mercedes"
