C240 4matic — Best sedan i've owned.Rides like a large car,plenty of power for a 6 cyl. engine.handles well and is roomy enough inside.Trunk is also spacious for a small sedan.Held value well and sold private for top dollar.Some maintenance pricey as far as the filters but only called for oil change and services every 13000 miles so it kind of evened out

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.

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.

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

Mercedes Wagon — Loved the styling and handling of this car. Car feels very solid with excellent road feel. The interior is was exceptional and is very quiet inside. Vehicle felt nimble although slightly more power would have been welcome. Overall a great small family wagon.

I Love My Ride — Overall I love this car to core, this is a perfect reliable style machine that you can own to get attention from your friends and neighbors. You will not be deep in pockets as per assumptions of others, simply you spend a little extra on oil changes but that is after every 13000 miles unlike every 5000 miles in other cars.

Sport And Luxury, Combined With Fuel Efficiency. What Not To Like? — Great, powerful, sporty, comfortable car. Leather sits, huge sunroof, Bose stereo, power everything, smooth and fun ride. Goes easily up the very steep hill, great for commute and pleasure. Large enough for a family. Very safe, with front and side airbags.
