Exclamation C230K... what model?

I'm looking to buy a c230 but not sure what model? I know the 2003 known to have some issues. Any thoughts about the c230? or should I consider another model? my budget is 12K.

I have a 2000 C230 (W202) and a 2004 C240 (W203). I much prefer the W202 (the W203 is mostly driven by wifey). Both cars have been very reliable, aside for a few initial glitches with the W202. No problems at all with the W203.

The weak link on these cars is the auto tranny. It would be very expensive to fix, and most of the time is a show stopper.
