My personal opinion of it is that it is a cool little car. I don't know a whole lot about that specific engine, but it should be about as reliable of a car as you are going to find in that model year. For 2006, they now have replaced the 4 cylinder engine with a DOHC V6 and kept the price the same.

I don't know enough about the C class to give a knowledgeable opinion, but my mother bought a 2001 C230 Kompressor with the 6-spd manual. She had a problem with a window motor, fixed under warranty. That's it. The little car will scoot, yeah.
