Pros

Enough Pep in Acceleration esp on sport mode
Interior is nice and simple not to fancy
gas mileage
easy on the eye
Very Reliable

Cons

Maintenance isn't bad, but for major parts pricey, but that just German cars;
Horse Power for a V6 is to low only 200hp
Backroom seating is decent but manageable, not to big n not to little but easily beats the CLA 250 model

Mercedes C 230 — Overall, it is a beautiful car, comfortable and fast. Drives well and steady. Great for commuting to work or bigger trips. I recommend it to anyone who enjoys Mercedes brand. As always high quality car and perfect, detailed machine. Looking to buy more.

2006 Mercedes-benz C230 Sport — I liked most everything about the car and even moreso when I customized it. However, purchasing a vehicle with a rebuilt title is something I will most likely never do again. Mechanically it performs like a dream but there are some small things cosmetically that I am not fond of. Call me picky but I take good care of my cars and something like that makes it seem otherwise.

Keeper — given that Ive had this car since it was new and now it has over 100K and still performing optimally. I would recommnend it for almost anyone who is looking for sportiness and dependability as well as excellent customer service from MB when needed.

Its Like A Coupe With 4 Doors — This car literally gets me where I wanna go with time to spear; I would call it " time traveling" it's really cool the reaction i get when barely hit the gas pedal, so unbelievable such a small cars has a big v8 engine in it, you would never expect it .

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

Get The 6-speed To Truely Appreciate This Car! — I purchased this car after driving a Volvo s60, and a Saab 9-3. Both of those cars were excellentdrivers. The Mercedes however, is a step above in every way (except the Volvo seats). Brakes are excellent, acceleration is decent, handling is tight yet soft. This car is extremely solid and quiet. 5 stars for this car!

Amazing Car For A Driving Enthusiast — The handling is second to none for its price. It will put your gentleman's bits in your throat when you push it through a tight corner. Turn the traction control off and hit the high revs if you want to get squirrely. Once you master the timing of the 7-speed semi-automatic transmission it is fantastic. Avoid potholes at all costs or you may need to see a dentist to have your fillings replaced. This is a true driver's car. Find a twisty road and push it. You'll find it will hold grip far beyond what you would expect. If you want a super-smooth ride, buy a Cadillac... then watch me blow your doors off in the corners.

Pros

I loved that car!

Cons

The thing I hate most about it is that all that was left is the license plate.

Awesome Car — Loved everything about that car except that it was an automatic transmission but there were only two for sale in the country and neither one had a stick shift. Didn't really matter though, favorite car I ever owned, the Audi was cool too.
