1998 Mercedes-Benz C230 with 47k miles

When I look back through all of the cars I’ve owned, one car stands out. My 1998 Mercedes-Benz C230. Offered for two model years in the US lineup, this was the entry level Mercedes of its time, powered by a naturally aspirated, 2.3 liter inline-4 producing 148 horsepower. Not an earth shattering figure, but this car wasn’t about horsepower. For me, it represented the last of the old guard for Mercedes, a time when engineering took precedence over budgets. I miss that car to this day, but on a recent trip to Lisbon, Portugal, it was comforting to see a bunch of these W202 C classes pressed into service as taxis. These are cars with staying power. Those in search for a good one should take a look at this 1998 C230 with under 50,000 miles on the clock.

Midnight blue over parchment is a very nice, rich color combination for this baby Benz. I was a particular fan of the MB Tex upholstery, as it wears like iron. Grab a sponge and some mild soap to clean off any dirt, wipe dry and you are ready to go. There’s a few scratches and a missing gearshift emblem on this car, but the flaws are minor considering the condition of the average W202 C class you usually come across. We’ll be watching this one, given it is on offer at no reserve. In the end, someone is going to wind up with a great combination of efficiency and luxury for the price.
