Pros

the 2.4 Liter engine provides more than enough Power as well as decent economy

Cons

the back seat seems a little small

A Classic Style And Look — The engine size supplies more than enough adequate power , plenty of leg room in the front compartment area , a little snug in the rear seat. Handles corners well and accelerates from 0 to 60 in 5.8 seconds as well as some great safety features..

Pros

Handles great ,chic look, powerfull wagon

Cons

Smaller wagon if you need a lot of space, can be expensive to fix if you dont have a mechanic

20

Wagon Lovers (rare) — I think this car is all that and a cup of joe. Besides the small cosmetic issues on the exterior its in great shape for a 2002. Chic smooth car,bose system ,sirus xm equipment installed. Compared to the 2002 e320 this car looks in my opinion 10 years newer . Featured in Mr and Mrs Smith for a reason for its uppermwrket style,it retailed for $41อต000 new. Before i brought this c320 , i looked at the 2004 328 wagon also ,but once i found this , i never looked the buy bmw again. But i must mention that if you dont have a personal mechanic , it can be costly for repair.

Love My Car, Just Wish It Had More Power — I actually love my car minus the power issue. I haven't had any major problems with it. So with that the reliability of the car is very good, still has a smooth ride after 10 years. The vehicle has a couple of cheaply made parts on the interior, such as plastic door handles and dash. These are things you would not expect from a Mercedes. The car performs fair, would definitely be better with more power, braking's fine and handles well. again overall ok.

Pros

This hatchback 4 seater car is very sporty, economical and  a roomy, functional package.  This C class hatchback (coupe) is appears to be built on a sedan wheelbase?  Because the rear seats are true rear seats not just for car seats or toddlers. The will hold a adult equal to many small sedans of today's era.  The rear passenger (& front ones too), the ESP traction, bracking assist, ABS, seat belt hold down designs,  I would place so advanced in its day again equal or better than today's small car offerings.   It is a heavier, safer and running premium getting >25/34mpg ( so gas extra cost makes it = regular cost > 22.5/31.  Timing chain motor (not belt maint issues or $$$ costs).  Very solid, framed door windows.  

Cons

Perceptions... that MB maint costs are over the roof.  Not true, parts are no more (often less) expensive than many of today's low price end cars.  I do all my own wrenching having a full garage and lift in the family.  There are some known basic and expensive issues on this platform (dash LCD and HVAC dash steppers/arms).  These cars are easily serviced and any MB specifics you can find many independents who can work them and have MB STAR  diagnosis knock off capabilities.  Panoroofs can be a PITA and forget it when they break...$$$$$.

Underrated Used Car Value In Today's Market. — I love this car, I bought it on a whim, (as the new car I just got) as my 2nd vehicle. I wanted the greater gas mileage, the fun of a sporty car & 6 speed and to save my SUV wear & tear. I maintain my own cars and am a wrench. Working on this (my 1st Mercedes) I found no difficulties as nuts & bolts are the same basics ... for my 17,000 miles and 2 years it has been one of the best cars I ever owned. It always get compliments and has never broke down always returning great mileage while smiling fun cruising.
