2005 Mercedes-Benz C-Class Wagon C240 4MATIC AWD 4dr Luxury Wagon (2.6L 6cyl 5A)


Review

Perhaps it's the Michelin tires on the car, but this has to be one of the smoothest riding cars we have owned. The only drawback, if you want to call it that, is the acceleration. Once it's moving though, it's easy to find yourself doing 90. For comparative purposes I drove the sedan, and the two ride completely different. I can't see spending another $20,000 to get the E class wagon, simply to get more speed. I doubt it could be more comfortable that this one. The gas mileage is good and will only improve once it's broken in.


Favorite Features

The ride. The controls on the steering wheel, the sound system. The seats are very comfortable.


Suggested Improvements

Get rid of the sub menus and have more choices at the "main" level. It's a hassle to find the feature I want quickly and I am afraid of resetting something I don't want to touch.

2005 Mercedes-Benz C-Class Wagon C240 4MATIC AWD 4dr Luxury Wagon (2.6L 6cyl 5A)


Review

We've had this car for 7 months now, and it is our all time favorite vehicle. Elegantly designed and mechanically superb, we have driven it with pleasure and in comfort on snowy roads and in Washington's steam-bath summer. The fuel mileage is not great (about 19 mpg), but that seems to be an inevitable tradeoff for cars of this class.


Favorite Features

Beautiful styling, interior and exterior. Excellent handling on the road, with the signature Mercedes tight turning radius. We have a 10-year old C220, and most of its flaws have been ironed out in this 2005 model.


Suggested Improvements

Like its C-class predecessors, this one has a very thick center post area that makes rear/side viewing less than great.

Review

The C Wagon 4wheel drive is an excellent vehicle. Excellent engine. It's quiet, but with very good accelleration. Very good heater and A/C.Super solid feel that BMW or any Japanese brand cannot match. Only complaint is that vehicle is too low !


Favorite Features

Tremendous power and surefootedness.


Suggested Improvements

Seats could be better. Vehicle is too low.

Review

We were looking for a midsize wagon, the C-Class was the right size for our needs, the 05 changes to both interior (big improvement to the tach and speedo layout),and exterior (wheels and body work) make this one of the best looking wagons on the market. The ride is comfortable, but firm enough for good handling and control at speed through turns.


Favorite Features

Exterior design , good ride and handling, good dash layout, smooth shiftng transmission, tight turning radius


Suggested Improvements

Could use more power, engine performance is not this cars strong point
