Expect New Technology by Sunil - New Jersey on 04/30/2004. Trim: 2004 Mercedes-Benz C-Class C320 Sport Sedan, Owned less than 1 year.
Pros: Car is excellent to drives. I drove 2600 miles. Solid car, Very safe with lots of airbags. Audio quality is excellent. Four year warranty is great. There is good chance that car will hold its value due to Mercedes name.
Cons: Navigation system is based on 10 CD in place of DVD which is surprise to me (Specifications are unclear and deceiving). Satellite radio is not available. Seats are without lumbar support uncomfortable to drive long distance. Can not play MP3 Trunk opens with a speed that can cause injury.
Overall review: Over all Mercedes is behind time and lagging new technology like: DVD navigation, Blue tooth, MP3, Satellite Radio, Choice of cell phones, good and clear specifications brochures. One should not go by the Mercedes name and explore Japanese cars like Acura before purchasing Mercedes.

Research the sport suspension package! by An MSN Autos Consumer on 03/14/2004. Trim: 2004 Mercedes-Benz C-Class C240 Sedan, Owned 1 year.
Pros: Timeless styling. Excellent fuel economy and the sport suspension and body package provides some youthful features. Excellent braking.
Cons: Sport Suspension (A-arm bushings and ball joints squeak like mad!) Standard Cassette! Who plays tapes anymore? Watch for rear differential leaks. Turn signal switch may cause a head ache and need replacement. Auto Trans tends to hang at low speeds, but fun to use in manuel mode.
Overall review: Smooth,quiet,economical. Great car for under $40,000 except for poor resale value compared to some competitors. Noisy front suspension on sport option. Will always look great and is already being copied by Japanese makes. If you can bare to spend a little more, go for the E-class!

great bargain for the price by Richard. Los Angeles on 03/05/2004. Trim: 2004 Mercedes-Benz C-Class C230 Sport Sedan, Owned less than 1 year.
Pros: Originally thinking to get a new 330ci ( got a 97 328i), but my best friend dragged me to give it a try. What seals the deal was the display screen in the middle of the instruments panel, and the the interior look, very modern and futuristic, unlike the bmw which almost look identical with the older version. The new c230 exterior is very appealing, slick :> Also smaller engine with about the same power and $6G cheaper too ( after all the options)
Cons: Just some minor stuff, the glove box is too small, especially with the changer, I have to put the manual in the trunk. Also the cup holder could be better, It could only hold small size drink, put a larger one increase the chance of spill and reducing some space for the pasanger side. The instrument menu, wished we could adjust the order of the menus. Also the Touch Shift, I personally prefer to move the stick up/dwn instead of left/right. It doesn't feel "right", but hopefully I get used to it.
Overall review: a great car, also feel very different from bemer, In bemer you have a tendency to "race it" , in benz you are more relax, but probably just the age.

Incredible, by An MSN Autos Consumer on 01/07/2004. Trim: 2004 Mercedes-Benz C-Class C230 Sport Sedan, Owned less than 1 year.
Cons: The aerodynamic accents under the fog lights are low enough to catch the curbs in parking lots....be careful.
Overall review: It may be the least expensive mercedes but you would never know! Awesome power,feel and looks!
