2002 Mercedes-Benz C-Class C AMG 32Review

Mercedes C32 Amg Sedan — When it was introduced (and until 2004), it was the quickest car Mercedes Benz had ever made. Just over 1000 were brought to the U.S. so it's a relatively rare car. Even though it has close to 400 hp, you can still get decent mileage if driven normally (26 MPG on highway). It's got ridiculously high fun factor - but cost of ownership, as with any AMG, is equally high.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Power, handilng, fuel economy (relative), looks

Cons: Tire consumption, relative spartan, when something goes wrong...it's $$$

Kompressor 2.6l For Sedan Would Be Prefection — Bought it used, so not sure what "NEW" was like for it. 6speed is a plus as we put it to use and allows enigine to be utlized. Getting used to the power band "over" 3,000+ is a little different from turbos we are accustomed to. E-85 goes well & repecting it's true abilites is a "learned" experience. (1st set of tires went fast). Maintanace= you take of it & it will well take of you. Only trouble was due to my own DOING= overloaded trunk & back seat and hitting a rail way crossing at a Valley like compression in the back roads, control arm broke & rear shocks ruptured. THe car is forgiving in liu of my own errors. Very Handsome in Black and Sport package wheels. I commute 84miles per day and E-85 (85% local ethanol 105 octane= not know for good mpg) gives me 28 on weekly check-ins. 92 & 89 octane gasoline= 35 mpg stomping the pedal= we all loose fuel.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: looks and feels great

Cons: low end lag, needs kompressor

A Fun Drive — The performance of this car is excellent for the price. The acceleration is great, the handling awesome, but brakes weak. The build quality is awesome like all Mercedes. The interior is nice, but the outside has a look you have to learn to love. Horrible on gas for a 4 cylinder, but easy on maintenance (never had a problem). As for fun factor being a six speed sports car its always fun.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: The feeling of being glued to the road in a subcompact

Cons: Gas Mileage

7 Years And Still Looking Good — rear suspension squeaks/rattles after 7 years of mild ownership, Paint still shines but some rust bottom of doors and wheel arches starting to show. Superb braking, handling, great looks Throttle delay in acceleration for a fraction of a second is annoying. Fun to drive anyways

Pros: smooth & safe ride

Cons: throttle by wire delay

Small Fun Hot Hatch — Gas mileage is about 23mpg combined. Lots of fun to drive. Expensive to maintain. Requires Premium gas. RWD is great. Great automatic although i would love to own a manual. Has some typical problems like weak sunroof motor. Has to many sensors for its own good.

Pros: Strong engine. Fun to drive. Hatch allows for Vaersitility

Cons: Expensive to maintain. Premium gas

Fantastic! — Fantastic little car. Like most people who own this car and want better performance, I've changed the supercharger pulley. I love this car. I love the sound it makes, and the speed. The base stereo suck...so I've changed it (i.e. Kennwood single din deck, Pioneer speakers). The traction control is awful, when you want to have fun, it stops you from it, when it rains, it just gives up. Mine has AMG tuned suspension, its great for driving on smooth roads, but anyone who's been in my car can agree that it doesn't have any suspension, just tires! Also have high performance tires, no traction in the wet, end of story. The panorama sun roof (or whatever it's called) is fantastic, as close to a convertible as possible :) I'm not a fan of the back of the car, it doesn't flow very well with the car, it just sort of ends. I don't know why, but my car is badged as a C23 AMG...Planing on putting a high flow exhaust on it soon, but for now, I LOVE THIS CAR!!!

Pros: fast, fuel efficient, great noise, awesome sun roof

Cons: no suspension, awful base stereo, not very attractive back

Mercedes C220 Cdi — The 220 cdi is economical and torquey. Excellent motorway cruiser. Quick, comfortable and i love the way it looks. Solid interior and lots to play with. Handling is fairly good and fuel economy is rarely below 50 mpg. Has a quite alot of space and a big boot. Ive been happy with it!

Pros: Looks, Economy

Cons: Service costs
