The car has amazing handling, a smooth quiet ride and a solid feel.

2003 Mercedes-Benz C-Class 1.8L

The car interior and features have a tendency to break or fail. Sun shade in the rear window sticks, interior door handles break, on the whole these are irritating but not as bad as where the fuel filter is placed. It took me hours to replace that one. So some of the regular maintenance is harder than it should be.

Compact and extremely fun to drive.

2003 Mercedes-Benz C-Class 1.8L

The car gets great gas mileage. The car is incredible reliable. The car has a simple maintenance plan and is easy to maintain on your own. The car has a great look and feel behind the wheel and it is extremely fun to drive on the highway and in the country.

Sporty small car with good acceleration and nice features for a 2003.

2003 Mercedes-Benz C-Class 1.8L

This car performs well. It has many features for a 2003. It is a nice little sporty car that accelerates pretty fast. Reliable. It is 2 door but pretty spacious. Repairs can be expensive. Sunroof is known to have problems. Powerless windows. Decent on gas.
