"I love this car. The only drawback is the convience entry feature, when on it brings the drivers seat too low. It would be nice to be able to set it at the height you would like for entry and exit. Other than that it is a gem.."
"This was my first Mercedes and my colleagues who had them talked about their good experiences. Having owned high-end Hondas, Subarus, and the like, I had pretty high expectations. However, the C-Class Coupe met them and more with great performance, economy, nice fit and finish, and comfort with a sporty. The only thing I added was AMG wheels that really set off the look of the car, but I got a lot of nice feedback from both old and young about the looks.
The only disappointment I had was that the dealer talked very highly of the resale value on the Mercedes products. Unfortunately here, the C230 did not meet expectations -- by 4 years the car was only worth 33% of the original purchase price (not the 45+% promised by the dealer).
All in all, this has been a great product and I plan to keep mine for a few years as it is holding up very well indeed."
"I purchased this vehicle brand new (C230 K). It has been in the shop quite a few times for an assortment of issues ie. leaking trans oil, headlamp moisture, Check Engine light, etc etc. Note this vehicle is stored in the winter, with its weekly startup and to top it off it has ONLY 7,400 miles. I suppose I had higher standard expectations for MB, shame on me."
"I bought this car over a BMW for my wife and am glad I did. This car comes loaded with DVD NAV, Xenon lamps, 18" chrome w/Pilot Primacy low profile wheels, sunroof,hands free bluetooth to name a few. I love the gas mileage at 34 mpg on the highway. The drive is a little bumpy because of the low profile wheels, but it handles great."
"This is a very good looking ride that gives Mercedes luxury at an affordable price. Mine has had no troubles except the LCD dash panel that fades when the car is very hot. A great quality car. However, there is no excuse for the performance of this vehicle. It is a slug. When you drive it you think Ford Escort performance. It is terribly slow. The V6 168HP C240 is slower than the 4 cyl! If you want a great looking, luxurious, affordable sedan with the Benz name and don't care about performance, this is a solid choice. If performance is at all on your radar, you will hate the way it drives. Absolutely no acceleration (0-60 in over 9 seconds)."
"I have owned my C-350 4-matic Luxury Sedan for 1 year. It is the finest auto I have ever riden in or drove. I am thrilled just to be in this beautiful performing auto.
The Harman-Kardan system beats the Bose hands down. This is my second M/B my other is a C-220 with 125K miles and still going strong and looks new. The quality is exceptional on both autos."
"The C55 AMG is a phenomial car with gobs of torque and is faster than almost everything else on the road. Reliability is superb and the AMG comes with all the extra touches you except from this car such as drilled front rotors, sport seats with primo leather and suede with the AMG logo on the seat etc, quad exhaust with the AMG logo cast into the tips and high end Harmon/Kardon sound system. This car lacks nothing."
