Hey, I am fixing to buy a new car, really considering this one.
Its a 2002 Mercedes-Benz C230 Coupe, everyone post their opinions on what they think about the look of it and if anyone knows anything about them post that too.
I don't see what there is to be jealous about, as it's a relatively inexpensive car. Most will probably buy it just so they can say, "I drive a Mercedes", as the other qualities it has is easily equaled in any other car for less money.
Personally, if you can go a little further, I'd get a BMW 325Ci, or maybe even a Subaru WRX, a certified used Audi A4 2.8 (or even a 1.8T), or something along those lines.
I would personally not purchase the car because there are a lot better performing cars out there for the money. It depends on what you are going for. There is a new Jaguar X-type coming out that might be a better deal. Drive it, see how you like it.
Whats the MSRP On that? BTW mercedes are a bit girly.

My dad just ordered one and its gonna be here either this month or next. We took the 3.0 for a spin at dealer. KICKS ASS. For the price of the X-type its a beautiful car. Handles like you would not believe and has the power to back it up.
Sorry to say so, but the c-class MB's are really not worth buying aside from being able to say you drive a Benz. You could get a lot more car for the same cash elsewhere. It's your money to spend as you please obviously, but just my 2 beans. I think I'd get a loaded Maxima SE or an Acura TL for that amount....bigger cars with bigger engines for roughly the same price.
I have to agree with most here. You're better off getting a car of different brand if you really want "bang/buck". Not to mention this particular car just has some sort of a "lacking feel" to it when you get behind the wheel.
I also don't like the fact that the rear end just looks like it was cut-off (reminiscent of the pre 2000 Altima's) in production.
If you want comfort, style and power behind that hood you're better off getting either a 2002 Maxima SE (what i have, and believe me it's an awesome car), an Acura TL/CL-S or even the new Jaguar X-Type (4 wheel drive at that!)
Choose your options wisely. You can get a lot more for your money if you look around.
