Nice styling, good handling, overall a nice looking car. Supportive leather seats, peppy low end power, one- touch windows. Steering wheel controls, computer screen, comfortable for driver and passengers, good high speed handling and stability, always nice to show up places in a Mercedes.

I bought this 2 years ago with 69,000 miles. For 17,000 miles more it has been trouble free and a joy to drive. Solid, quite, awesome performance, hatch back hauling, 4 real seats and great gas mileage. Way better choice than most 4 cylinder used cars in this category, and even today (vs. other used cars) I see these are priced right.

I have owned a 2002 C-320 Sport Wagon for nearly 4 years. The mileage is now 78,000. The 3.2 litre engine provides great power for a small car. The sport suspension is terrific; even though it is a wagon, it handles like a sports car. The car has been relatively trouble free for the 45,000 miles I have driven it. I purchased the extended warranty and the annual service has averaged about $1000 with all of it being covered in the warranty. The interior is comfortable. The cup holders are a joke. There are no other issues with the car. The origional sticker for the car was over $42,000 in 2002. I paid $16,000 for it in 2008. I considered a trade up to a used 2008 E-350 and found the dealer only allowed $7000 for the wagon so I decided to keep the wagon. The car is a blast to scoot around in and I agerage 23+ MPG on an 8 mile work commute and 27 MPG on the road. I'd never consider a new Benz due to the depreciation. Great used ones are available if great research is done to find the right car.

I bought my car in 2003 with 10k miles on it paid 19k. Drove 85k miles and with few minor problems. I've noticed after 80k the bulbs start to burn..not big deal cheap to replace. Maintenance is cheap also. BIG plus is the road side assistance life time for free. 2 time battery went down and it was replaced right on the spot..1 time free of charge brand new battery. Great gas mileage. I am a happy user..

I loved the look of the car and performance. Overall I enjoyed driving it. I am tall so i had to have my seat back which made it very difficult for anyone to fit in the back seat. when i had a full car, it wasnt fun. It is a fast car for the V6 powered engine. The feautures were great, bose speakers which really sounded awsome, rear sun shade for my kid was great. I would reccommend this vehicle to anyone exept if you expect kids or people to be in the rear seats a lot, they and you wont be confortable.

Bought this C320 wagon for my wife (who is 4'11") with 32k, and also purchased an extended warranty. Thank God for that. Love the look of the car, although it's too small for me (I'm 6'2"), while the mileage and handling are very good. However, the air cond. is, at best, marginal (we live in LA) and can take 20 minutes to cool the car at 85 degrees. 100? Forget it. It has also suffered a host of reliability issues -- some big, some small and infuriating. To wit: the driver's door seal has malfunctioned more than 3 times, been repaired... and recurs. The glovebox door has fallen off twice. My wife and I have cut our fingers on the trim around the shifter. The cigarette lighter is locked in the down position and cannot be removed. Now, in the summer heat, the car is having vapor lock problems-- despite it being fuel injected. Oh, yeah, and the sound system is only good when it's cranked... and I mean CRANKED! Otherwise it sounds like a transistor radio from the 60s. This is my sixth and last Mercedes.

I owned my C230 Kompressor sportscoupe for more than two years. Its performance and styling in unbeatable for the price. Instead of buying a used Japanese car (for the same money) I bought my Benz and I never regret. The sportscoupe definitely attracts attention and lets you enjoy all the good things of owning a Mercedes-Benz. It is a Mercedes at the end, not "like a Mercedes."
