Pros: What do you like about your 2006 Mercedes-Benz C-Class? I especially like the C230's ride; looks, in and out are great; seating for average build occupants is excellent.
Cons: How would you improve your 2006 Mercedes-Benz C-Class? Improve the automatic 7 speed transmission.
2006 Mercedes-Benz C-Class Review: Coming to a stop where the trans automatically downshifts from 2 to first gear in the Sport mode, it jumps noticeably. In Comfort mode, it does the same from 3 to 2. I was used to the smooth shifting of the 5 speed trans of the C230 Kompressor Coupe. Otherwise I would have given the top rating in performance.
Milage is about what my Kompressor Coupe realized—about 20 MPG in the city. I just purchased this one year old, pre-owned vehicle with 30,000 miles on it, in September 2008. I paid top dollar for it, but it looks and runs like new. So far so good.
