2003 Mercedes-Benz C-Class C 320 HatchbackReview

Mb C320 — The quality is unmistakable and it performs like a dream. Repairs can be a little more expensive, but I haven't had to have many repairs. The panoramic sunroof is awesome on a sunny cool day -- even if you can't use it very often in New Orleans. Overall, it's the best car I've owned . . . thus far.

Pros: Excellent Appearance and Performance

Cons: Not the Best Car for a Child Seat

Sports Sedan — Despite most models eventhough the 230 takes high octane it gets around 30mpg. Changing the oil and gerneral inpspection every 10k miles it conveniant opposed to every 3k miles stadard with most cars. For being the lowest end model MB makes its 1.8L superchardged 4 cyclinder its pretty quick, and has excellent handling. Overall I am pleased with the cars looks and features.

Pros: Great looking, fast, lots of features

Cons: Small interior, back seat cramped, minor electrical problems

No Need To Pimp My Ride!! — Super sexy car. Great for drifting. Very economical on the open road. Build quality is very good and loads of fun to drive. Only negative is that it is very expensive to install a bluetooth phone kit. Sound system is fab but not ipod compatible. Definitely not a soccer moms car!

Pros: everything

Cons: not really a family car!

Sporty Car With An Amazing Feel Of The Road — I bought mine used in 2007 with 29k miles on it. I haven't regretted my purchase at all. Compared to the 2006 BMW 325i my brother has, the handling on the road is much more grippier and has an excellent stock sports suspension. The supercharger really makes a difference, and the fuel economy is great. I only wish I had a model with a glass roof. The only downside of this car is the limited modding capabilities. You can only do so much with the 1.8L supercharged '03. If you want to spend some extra bucks to mod your car and you're interested in purchasing a used C230, go for the '02 model or just dish out a couple thousand more for the C320. Otherwise, this is excellent for the budget sports car enthusiast who is not interested in modding.

Pros: Excellent handling and suspension, slap-shift feature is a lot of fun

Cons: Slower than newer models, but that's true with almost all cars! Not very flexible for engine modding.

Split Between Good & Bad. — I leased this vehicle new in 2003 and gladly turned it back in 2006. I've since found out that those first turn of the century vehicles were plagued with low quality components, the result of Mercedes failing to police its parts providers more closely. If everything was going well, this was an awesome car. It felt much larger and stable on the road than its size would imply. But if you did anything out of just driving it on a flat perfect road, you'd end up paying for something. I live in Los Angeles, and like most large cities, the roads suck. Pot holes and the like are unavoidable. I bent two rims and blew out 5 tires over the 3 years I had it. I also rubbed to close to the curb once, which caused the entire rear right arm to bend, rendering the vehicle undriveable. Cost to fix: $3,200. The traction control computer short circuited once (fortunately covered under the warranty). Maybe the roads in Europe are better, but this car was way to delicate for real life driving in L.A. Its my understanding that the new C classes have corrected these failings.

Pros: Plenty of power, great sunroof, sporty feel, roomy interior, & nice handling.

Cons: Delicate car, costly repairs, tire eating rims from hell.

So Far, It Is A Nice Car. — Just bought it used and had it inspected by a Mercedes mechanic before purchasing it so I feel good about the car. Was told that the rear brakes had 30% left and should probably buy new tires.

Cons: When purchasing tires on a 4Matic, need to purchase all new tires at the same time.  Otherwise you'll jack up the AWD sensor and that will lead to transmission problemos.

It's Always Something — I've only had problems with this car. First the check engine light comes on and I have to replace a sensor. Then I have trouble starting the car...I think I was sold a lemon!
