I just love absolutely everything about this car except the interior, and I think Mercedes knows it was ugly as it got a huge upgrade a few years later (2005). Other than that, this car runs like crazy, if you floor it from a stop, you'll spin out, but if you're a bit more careful, it is said to be able to do the 0-60mph sprint in less than 5 seconds, which is crazy for 4 door sedan. But be careful as it just pulls and pulls even over 100mph it just keeps going. Reliability is also great. I've owned it for 1.5 years and put around $300 in repairs outside the scheduled services, which is crazy for a performance vehicle.

Kompressor is excellent for its good gas milage. Bought it to use in commuting 25 miles one way to work. to replace an F150 King Range that gets 13 miles/gal. Very comfortable and peppy with the 1.8L Turbo engine, drove it from FL to NJ after purchasing it with very low milage. Has many features that weren't available on many American cars for that year. For an 8 year old car, the MB quality still shows through even for a low end model.

C240 Sedan Looks can be Deceiving

This is a great looking car. Hands down. But my C240 sedan is short on comfort items. Mercedes are supposed to be luxury cars so consider options like power door locks and windows to be standard. This car doesnt have intermittent wipers, has a manual seat adjustment and whole bunch of blank buttons in the center of the dash that do nothing. First Mercedes I've ever seen without a sunroof. Admittedly, this car has been pretty reliable and has never left me stranded. But repairs, unless you can perform them yourself, will be expensive. The catalytic converter was rattling when I bought it. Should have seen that coming. The crankshaft position sensor caused me to fail smog inspection. Performance wise-loses a drag race with a Nissan Versa, but long distance drives at high speeds are effortless.

We have had this car for 2.5 years and nothing at all has gone wrong with it. We have driven it for over 42,000 miles. It now has over 110,000 miles on it and the way it drives and runs I would speculate that it has at least that many more miles in her. It is powerful and rides and handles great.

We bought this from a dealer who got it in a trade (one-owner), after researching the model on cars.com and test driving a few others. We love the way it looks, drives and feels. It's solid, fast and safe. We look forward to many years and miles of driving our Kompressor.

I bought my c320 4matic wagon with20k miles on it 7 yrs ago and to date have not had any repairs to it yet..only routine maintenance (tires and brakes). Prior to, had only had saabs and had had good luck, but took a chance on this sporty little wagon. handles well, fast, zippy and exterior styling is very pleasing. Going for 100,000 mile tune up soon and though I am often tempted to get a bigger suv type vehicle as my family grows, there is nothing wrong with this car and I hate to trade it in. I have been won over and am certainly a Mercedes-Benz fan now.....quality and good design. I also feel very safe driving insnow storms, ice with this.

Great Car, worth the price

by from on December 22, 2010

This is a great little car at a very affordable price. I have had no major problems. It might not be as luxurious as the higher end Mercedes but definitely just as reliable.

This vehicle will surprise you on how well it performs on the highway. Took a trip from ATL to CHI 1,400 mi round trip to break-in the vehicle. We loaded up the the rear with luggage plus (3) 200+ lbs adults and a another kid. My expectation was that the car would be dragging; unable to accelerate but amazing enough the performance between 60 to 80 mph was phenomenal. I was easily able to pass trucks climb hills through the Tenn Mtns, as well as set the cruise at 75+ and maintain complete control. Not to bad on fuel; I average about 24 mpg on hwy (again fully loaded). Also the interior is larger then what meets the eye. I am 6'1" and I can completely stretch my left leg and still have room in the rear seat behind me. Seats are firmer than I would prefer. I recommend the C320 over C240 I tested both. I Do not recommend 4-matic with C240 (too slow & heavy).
