2005 Mercedes-Benz C-Class 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.


Best 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.


Worst Features

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

Other than the radio needing to be replaced, the car has been flawless to date. Fun, quick, respectable, efficient. Everything you could want out of a car.


Best Features

Aggressive look and handling.


Worst Features

Leather extended to the entire face of the seat (only middle section is without full leather option). Radio performance is below average.

2005 Mercedes-Benz C-Class C240 Rwd 4dr Luxury Sedan (2.6L 6cyl 5A)


Review

I love every aspect of this car. From the stylish design to the pounce of the 2.8ltr motor. Mercedes Benz has continued to excede our high standards in every way.


Best Features

I love the contour of the interior, the way it looks and flows. It wraps everything you need close to your finger tips. It's well designed, oversized, power plant is responsive, yet exceptionally quiet. The style and overall concept of the car has brought countless praise. We can't say enough.


Worst Features

None
