Must admit I'm a little worried. Brand new member, and, while I understand that every car manufacturer has it weaknesses. ( I've had to "lemon" a Honda) I thought DaimlerChrysler held themsevles to a higher standard. I was until recently, saving for my wedding, but, things didn't work out quite the way I planned, so I'm looking to upgrade my vehicle. Narrowed my choices down to the Audi A4 1.8t ( 'cause it's "chippable") Infiniti G35 ( 'cause it hauls & handles) and the C230 Coupe ('cause....well...3 pointed star for under 30K!) You all know better than I would, at this point, since most of you folks have owned and driven the vehicle for the better part of a year. I'm searching this and other boards for opinions, but, straight up: Is it truly worth the investment, and why?
