"I've had the C63 for 9 months, and love driving it. It puts out a great exhaust note, and can definitely get up and go...you need to make sure you are pointing in the direction you want to go when you hit it. It also has some nice features, and I love the COMMAND Nav...it is VERY intuitive and easy to see. I've had many compliments on the display.
I would argue that for the money, though, there are other cars that may be worth the purchase. While I have easily been able to beat Mustang GTs and STis or Evos on the highway, I'm a little disappointed at the low end speed. I had a BMW 335i stay with me until 4th gear the other day...a car that I thought I should have crushed for sure. Also, I'd hate to get into twisties with a BMW, as the C63 feels very heavy in corners.
Overall, it is a great car, and I love that there are few out there (only have seen 1 other, different color, in all of Oahu). I do think you can get more for the money...but then, it wouldn't be a Benz."
"Love my C class since I bought it in 2008. I have the luxury model with package 2, and enjoy every day of driving it. It is beautiful, queit, comfortable, very smooth and has a many nice features like folding mirrors and heated seats, ect."
"I'm so glad I went with this car. After months of looking I settled for this car because of it performance and of course the name. The only thing I would add or change about the car is the noise level when driving. It could be a little less noisy. Also, no sound when the blue tooth is engaged. Otherwise I love it."
"I nicknamed her Cream Puff because it is such a sweet ride. Gas mileage is pretty decent-30 +/- MPG, considering my former diesel car got 55. Great sound system. I keep it in mint condition. Color is luna blue with beige leather interior. One of the best cars I've ever owned."
Cons: "trunk is bigger than small back seat space"

"Excellent sporty auto; only draw back is that it is a car for 2 persons. Small back seat; minimal leg-feet space. This car needs open spaces/long rides; great open road 31 mpg. Can not ask more for comfort, stability, acceleration and elegance."
"perfect for commuting to work and back. good acceleration, pretty good gas mileage for all wheel drive model(avg about 25.1 with mostly highway). with so many seat positions, extra tall people can fit comfortably(6'5"). aside from the ridiculous cruise control lever placement, its a terrific car and would buy again."
"One of the more inexpensive cars in the luxury car industry. I'd recommend this car to anyone that doesn't live on a dirt road, which I do. These cars just were not made for anything but asphalt. I have adored it since day one and would buy another one in a heartbeat if we lived in the suburbs. It drives like a dream and looks great while it does it!"
"I own a 2008 MercedesBenz C300 with the P2 Performance package. It has the AMG wheels and suspension as well. I LOVE this car! I can be pretty picky when it comes to vehicles.. The car handles like none other.. and is very composed at very high speeds (well in excess of 115 MPH) there is virtually no over or understeer- and there is no body roll to speak of. The Harmon Kardon premium sound is among the best audio systems I have ever heard. Seriously, if you're looking for an entry level luxury sport sedan- Mercedes gives you an incredible bang for your buck! If you're lucky enough to find one with a 6-speed Manual trans. jump on it! You won't be disappointed!"
Pros: "fun to drive, enough technology not to overwhelm"

"Quiet and comfortable car. Was able to improve responsiveness by changing the tires to a Bridgestone RE760. Tak about fun to drive. Has a good balance between everyday driving and sportiness. Love the panorama roof and the overall look and design of the car. Overall I love this car and will purchase another one when i'm ready."
"I had a 1996 C-Series...I loved the body style---
I had a 2000 E-430...it was dangerously fast---
I had a 2007 C-Series...I drove it off the showroom floor---
NOW I have a 2011 Red, C-300, that is my absolute FAVORITE. It has plenty of power, comfort, quality feel, good looks, and head-turning capability. It is not too expensive. I truly LOVE this car! There is no substitution for QUALITY. You get what you pay for."
