Constantly went into "limp mode" due to problems with transmission and gear selector. Cost over $4000 total in parts and labor. Later found that it was a very common problem with the C230 and Mercedes refused to issue recall or assist with paying for parts and labor. This C230 was eventually totaled out by insurance after I drove it through 4 inches of standing water which froze the engine and destroyed the electrical system.
I LUV MY CAR
2002 Mercedes-Benz C230Fabulocks - Chapel Hill, NC11/20/2006
And that is the absolute truth. When i first spotted the photo on the website I liked what I saw but had no idea how much better i would love the performance and all the special features it has...I Icame very close to getting a boring (but reliable) toyota corolla....boy am i glad i didn't do that! From the 5 cd changer with the super Bose speakers, to the panoramic sunroof and especially the way it automatically locks the doors after I turn on the ignition and dive off, it's a love affair....And i must admit, my very first with a vehicle. And since the model i own is no longer being made by Mercedes, that makes it all the more special. I don't see millions of them on the road. I couldn't be happier with my automobile....It is perfect for me.
