2008 Mercedes-Benz C-Class Sedan C300 Sport 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 6M)


Review

From the mystique of the Mercedes-Daimler-Benz corporation comes a middle-of-the-road midsize sedan that does not surprise the owner in any way. This is my 1st MBZ, I have never driven one before owning this one. Fairly comfortable, very good looking exterior, with adequate power. All of this in consideration of the $30K plus price tag. When you buy the symbol of quality and luxury, that is exactly what you get– just the symbol. Purchased CPO and added 2 yr warranty.


Favorite Features

6 speed manual transmission, Heated seats, fantastic good-looks. Added K&N filters (2) which for me has made this car bearable. Mercedes-Benz dealership has always been accomodating, always providing a new loaner car at no charge.


Suggested Improvements

In the first year, car was towed twice to dealer, once for a failed engine pulley, and then for a broken key or ignition switch. Base stereo has no midrange sound and no way to adjust for this. Performance from the 3 liter is average. Gauges look like they belong in some long-gone Chrysler product, and smaller increments are decorative only. Airbox and filters were improperly designed.

Review

Love the car. Very nice looking and fun to drive. My first MB and I'm very happy with it. I had a Saab 9-5 and a BMW 3 series, this one is better.


Favorite Features

Performance, design, class


Suggested Improvements

More comfortable seats.

Review

When you buy a C 300,or a 328, or A4, you're buying a good German engineered automobile that delivers sporty and capable driving dynamics without being a performance car, enough features to please most drivers but no luxury amenities (unless you add optionals that will shoot up the price), and comprehensive maintenance/service (every 10k miles or so). It's a very good car that makes me look forward to the E550 or E63 AMG.


Favorite Features

Design, cruise control, stereo, handling, pretty good all around.


Suggested Improvements

A little more torque and hp would be nice, look at the 328 for seat comfort (front and back)

Review

Great car... amazing exterior... turn heads all the time. Great drive and it is a lot of fun to go over 100 mph until the police stops you.


Favorite Features

Shift very nicely. Great brakes and love the satelite.


Suggested Improvements

Seats could be deeper... I'm 6'3" so a bit uncomfortable. Xenon lights should not be extra.

Review

I have driven several luxury sedans and SUVs. If you are in the market to buy a high-bred, trust me when I say that this is not a luxury car. It is peppy enough considering what it is. It feels like nothing more than a VW Jetta. The interior is very plain and honestly kind of feels cheap. There is literally what looks and feels like aluminum on the doors and dash. Yes I understand that for 30K you can't expect to get much from MBenz. The car is cute and most likely reliable in the long term, but that's about it.


Favorite Features

Exterior design is cute.


Suggested Improvements

None. There's only so much you can expect from a Benz at this price range. For a real Benz, you'll have to cough up the dough.
