Mercedes-Benz C-Class Sports Coupe (01-08)

Value

3 out of 5

At over £20,000 it's quite steep for what is basically a three door hatch. The three pointed star has a premium!

Costs

4 out of 5

Everything's been covered by three year warranty. Insurance is not too bad.

Driving

4 out of 5

Optional Evolution package improves the ride and handling.

Performance

4 out of 5

Very smooth and refined. Cruises very well in sixth gear.

Reliability

2 out of 5

It has been in the dealers on 8 seperate occasions in 17 months. Towed away three times. New gearbox fitted at 2000 miles. Rear seat trim constantly coming away from the seat. Need I say any more?

Looks sweet. I still can't find anything else that looks this good foe the money. Optional Evo wheels finish it off a treat.

Comfort

3 out of 5

Okay in the front, but cramped in the rear wiand it only has two rear seatbelts. No good if you've three kids.

Continual problems with electronics shutting the car's power down due to problems with engine air flow sensors. Not impressed as it's now happened 4 times and it's still not sorted out.
