Classic Early Mb Amg Car — This is a solid, well-built, powerful car with Mercedes quality and not all the complexity of newer models. It is not inexpensive to maintain, but at 147,000 miles still looks and performs better than most new cars. The engine and brakes are as good as it gets.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Fun, Solid-built Car That You Feel Safe In — I've now had this car for over 8 years (my daughter drives it, now) and have been very pleased. It wasn't terribly fast, but with a 2.3L engine it's not really expected to be. Mileage was good, with high 20s and low to mid 30s common. The car is also very comfortable and enjoyable to drive.

.. — Performance: Acceleration is good, but it can be better.. But we have to remember that, its only a family car.. Brakes are normal. Handling is improverd, because i got 225/40 ZR18 tyres in it. Build quality is normal mercede-benz quality..;)

Last Year They Made Mercedes In Germany. Very Proud Of That!!! — Performance Is great. Handles Awesom. Faster Than Alot Of V8's Ive Owned. The Only Thing The Car Ever Needed Was Spark Plugs. The Interior Is Near Perfect In This Car. The Exterior Is In Good Condition But Could Use A Good Cleaning . It Gets Great Gas Mileage 28MPG city, And 32 Highway. Its A Great Car To Drive.

A Gold Mine For The Future — blistering acceleration and superb handling under slow high speeds and braking........a monster in disguise. wonderfull two tone leather and very solid build in and out. maintainance isnt too cheap but remeber its a merc fuel is abit dear too but then again your at a 100 mile under ten seconds with torque to spare. A car to drive b4 you hang up your gloves!!!!!

A Sporty Economy Car With Luxury. Still Good Cars For The Money At A Couple Years Old. — Other than slightly higher than normal maintenance costs, we love this car. Sporty, comfortable on long trips, and it gets 35 mpg on the highway, 24 around town. (C230). Its an economy car with classic looks. Even though this is the entry model, it has all the options you'd want ,standard.

Good Car Overall. — A typical Mercedes Benz. Very reliable, very efficient and has a good, low fuel consumption, engine. Very good gear changer. A little hard steering wheal. And sitting in it is a little bit uncomfortable, and tight. A good car overall.
