Pros

Nice size car, with good space inside. This is a great little hauler. Excellent handling with four-wheel drive. Handles snow and ice well. Durable interior with comfortable seats. Rides great for a car this size, and super solid build quality, even after 100,000 miles.

Cons

Flimsy cupholder is the only real negative. Could use more power, though it is quick enough for its small V-6. Fuel economy is middling at 21-26 mpg. No 3rd-row seating.

A Very Practical Small Wagon For All Seasons — When I was in the market for a new car, I chose this over others. I had driven one as a loaner car and was amazed at the ride and handling. Since then we moved a household 300 miles with many trips and no issues. It also looks great, with lovely lines. Overall this has been a terrific car

It's The Best — It has the best performance, acceleration, braking, handling and all. It as needed some repairs like battery changing, oil changing, etc. I love its interior and exterior appearance. It's a lot of fun to drive because it's fast. I think everyone should get one

Pros

A big motor in a little sedan, is all I ever wanted from a daily driver.  Six years and 62k miles, best car I have ever owned.  

Cons

There is nothing that I hate about the car beyond some minor issues...  The ugly black Satellite radio antenna wart on the trunk lid, smaller and body colored the next model year.  And I guess maybe the lack of leg room for rear seat passengers, but again I did not buy the car to use as a limo

Still The Best Performance Value Out There, Tons Of The Best German Engineering For Very Little Coin — With 362 brake horse power my C55 can be scary fast! Taking the car onto the track for a full weekend of driving proved to be easy, the brakes never faded, the handling was great, predictable and confidence inspiring. Build quality is way up there of course, a very solid well made car. The car is a Q ship, does not scream attention, but those who know what AMG means, it says volumes. Gas mileage is not great, about 17 mpg, but I did not buy it for fuel economy! The extended warranty has been great to cover the things that wear out and break, maintenance is no greater then any other high end car. The Fun Factor is why I got the car, and on the road or track the grins and smiles never fade or get old.

Beautiful Dependable Sporty Car. — This car rides and drives great. The look of this car is very family spotty. The average family can finally afford a Mercedes . This car is getting 29 mpg. The only reason I'm getting rid of thus car is I need something with more space. The front seats are spacious but for adults the backseat is not spacious.

Extremely Impressed — Super eye-catching, quick spirited, fun to drive vehicle take loves the open road! Extremely powerful, yet very comfortable handling at all speeds. I would definitely recommend to purchase and ownership of the Mercedes Benz C230 Kompressor at any level of driver.

Pros

Love the Interior. Seats are wide and comfortable. Nothing looks cheap. Powerful V8 with 363 hp. It's a STEALTH-looks like a family car but it behaves like a true sports car!!!

Cons

Heavy Steering, wish they designed it way different from other C-class cars considering the price

Stealth — I love a sedan that behaves like a true sports car. With the C55, I have just enough power, I feel connected to the road and yet it's comfortable enough that I can take it for long drives. The build is solid. Nothing about this car is looks cheap. The sound system is great though I must say most of the sounds are in the front of the cabin. I don't like the fact the steering is too heavy. The brakes are great. It's sits an inch lower and an inch wider than the other C-Class models I believe. The front end slopes down sharper than the other models as well.

Nice Low End Car To Own A Mercedes, Recommend — I will say I love this little car. feels good to run in this brand and the C230 sport style has pep when you lag into the compressor turbo. Fun car and good gas mileage. Love the handle and the looks I get when its clean and shiny. Cant keep wife out of it.
