C230 Kompressor 5 Star Entry Level Benz!!! — Well my wife and I actually traded our 2011 Kia Soul for a 05 C230 kompressor sedan. I know some may think thats crazy but the Soul with its under powered 4cyl, cheap materials, and loss of value was enough for us to want to upgrade. The C230 has plenty of factory options, great interior materials and finishes. We had a huge selection of sedans like the maxima, accord, camry, ect but none come close to the looks, performance, or quality of the benz. The 05 seemed to be the best choice due to its mid production AMG updates and better fuel economy than the newer V6 and high safety levels. In short we love this car its a rocketship compared to the Kia and we let someone else take the hit by buying it new. According to Cargurus our C230 was $3200 underpriced and after a quick carfax found it was a one owner FL car with 42000 miles and even still smelled like new. The car was so nice we made our descision within few minutes and we purchased the car the next day. We love our car and would highly recommend it to anyone, just make shure you do your reseach as some models are more reliable than others.

Great Car, But Slow — Handling is good, ride is good, interior is great. The only downside.........OMG why is it so SLOW?! Also, be prepared to pay premium service fees. This car is fun to drive, but be sure to get a manual transmission, keeping the rev up is important in this car.

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.

Mercedes Benz 200 Kompressor 3 Door Se Evo Coupe — Performance is great, lots of extras, very comfortable, nice 2 tone leather trim, good sound system, plenty of room in rear, good size boot. Good build quality, despite what people say about late Benz's. Looks good from front & rear, although new model has just been released - still doesn't look too dated. Cost of ownership not too bad, certainly not any dearer than the Audi. This car is FUN to drive!! Mines a 6 speed manual.

Mb C320 — very nice acceleration, fun to drive and very comfortable. Luxury interiors and enough space. Gas mileage acceptable for this kind of car, however maintenance is expensive if get broke but if not is only one time at year. I will recommend this car

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

Awesome — Awesome! Fun to drive, very dependable. Lots of power when you need it. great gas mileage for this powerful car. Inexpensive to maintain for a German sportscar. Awesome inside and out, D is always worried about the salt buildup on the car, thats why I get to wash and wax it! Not that I mind >;-P

Although A Bit Expensive It's A Really Good Car. — Normal car, torque from low revs really helps for powerslides and economy, top-notch build quality, amazing brakes and handling thanks to evolution pack, the exterior styling could be better in the rear section, interior is very nice looking, although the space in the back isn't enough for a tall person, gas mileage is very good(in long trips you can get below 8 L/km), maintenance cost is quite high since it's a Mercedes, the car is generally really good and after the tyres are warmed up you can have a very good drive.
