I purchased a CPO 280 instead of a new C class, cost was not the issue thought the 2007 drove better. After 1 year and 15,000 I really like everything about this car. Ride is superb in all weather and it holds the road perfectly. Quiet, comfort, very good MPG and zero problems.
Ride, comfort make this car a joy to own and drive. The interior is nothing but high quality and the outside classic Mercedes
The new C-Class was in my opinion a step backward. The steering lost the German feel and appears more like a Chrysler.
