"i have driven infinit, bmw, and jaguar my entire adult life (about 20 years now) and i finally tried a mercedes... i don't think i'll be driving anything but mercedes for a long time. i like it alot. i specifically like the wagon; it's sporty and convenient and luxury all in one. one thing i can say though, is that i don't like the lack of good color combinations. i like black on tan/java, white on tan/java, burghandy on tan/java and those seem very rare with these cars. they are hard to find. most of them seem to have gray interior which i do not like at all... that's the only negative thing i can say about this car."
"Great car. I had only one problem - a faulty fuel door lock - 2x, which the dealer fixed without hesitation. Have been thinking of buying a bigger car, but hate to give up the great gas mileage, comfort during a long trip, styling, and multitude of creature comforts. This car is a nice overall package of comfort, style and affordability. Value."
"I own this car since Nov/2000. Is a very well made car. Is solid, you feel secure. Is elegant. The model does not look today as 7 years old. Very good performance. Easy and fun to drive. Very good A/C, even in Miami. No major mechanical problems. Several minor electric and computer problems that make me visit the dealer several times a year. Everything has been covered by the manufacture warranty and presently by the extended warranty bought at the dealer. Maintenace services are expensive. Is a real good buy for the price."
"THIS IS REALLY JUST A RACE CAR PRETENDING TO BE A STREET MACHINE. 380 BHP IN A CAR THIS SIZE AND THAT TOO FROM AN AMG ENGINE.
I JUST WISH THE REAR TYRES WERE A BIT WIDER.
EVEN 911 DRIVERS ARE WARY TO TAKE THIS THING ON !"
"Awesome comfort and peppy sport setting. Only drawback was the lack of leg room for my taller friends (6' and over). Trunk space is not as big as I am used to and I felt like I was gassing up the car too often."
"I have had the car for almost 3 years and I have enjoyed it immensely! I drive 600+ miles per week and it is very important to me to be comfortable and have a reliable vehicle. Love the dealership (Holloway-NH) and their great staff and service!"
"Bought the C240 for my wife when she was expecting our youngest child and she loves it. She's logged 50,000+ miles on it a, yes maintenance is more expensive than a Honda or Japanese car but the ride, safety and comfory make up for it.
IF YOU DO THE MAINTENANCE, THIS CAR WILL LAST FOREVER, OR SO IT SEEMS!
It looks and drives just like the day we bought it, well except for a few kid related carpet stains.....
Our MB dealer is great, make an appt, tell them you need a loaner and 15-30 mintes later you are in and out and your way.
Had to replace MAS but that is common in almost all MB, BMW and higher end cars in this climate.
Trading it for a E500, since the family needs a little more room now."
"Original owner, took almost 4 years to work out the electrical and break bugs. However, after being replaced completely by benz under warranty - not a problem for almost 2 years. In fact, I own a new Honda Civic and I am selling it because the c240 is so superior in All aspects except mileage economy. Highway mpg - 28 and city is 18, still not bad. Fun car, just make sure that above items have been serviced before purchase"
