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


Review

Let's face it, the reason why we consider this car is for the status symbol. For the price, this vehicle delivers quality, styling, and great features all packed into an entry level luxury vehicle. The best features of this car are the multimedia package, build quality, and performance. The Multimedia boasts a 7.1 surround sound system, DVD, navi, voice command, bluetooth connectivity, and a 6 disc cd changer. It's always conversational piece with every passenger. As for build quality, try standing on another car's door panel, and say goodbye to the hinges. This car will hold a 400lb person with no problem. Styling? Ask everyone who stares. The best looking luxury sedan on the market.


Best Features

Multimedia package. 18 inch AMG rims and tires. The small details. Like how the hand rest doesn't bang against the interior roof, but retracts softly. How the 5 holes in rear tail lights control airflow around the car to a flow into a nice stream behind the car.


Worst Features

Memory seats, child locks, sunglasses holder.

2008 Mercedes-Benz C-Class C63 AMG 4dr Sedan (6.2L 8cyl 7A)


Review

I was looking for a new car for a good while. I was about to get the new Lexus ISF but then I came across the C63. Daammmmmm. First of all it has a very clean look. The exterior has a good blend of sporty and luxurious. The interior is also very nice. A very clean and luxurious look. However I'm not too sure about the bucket seats. Though the leather is absolutely gorgeous, I feel the seats could have been more comfortable. There ok though, some people really like them. The best part is the engine. It has superpowers.


Best Features

Manual mode; fun to play around the 5000 rpms. Harmon kardon sound system is good. Leather is beautiful. Navigation is easy to understand and cool to look at as you drive. The engine isnt a feature, but I can't stress how much I like the acceleration.


Worst Features

I would improve the gas mileage. I understand It has a huge engine and it requires a lot of gas, but i wish it had a higher MPG. The bucket seats could have been more comfortable but if your used to bucket seats they'll be ok. Overall I would recommend this luxurious racecar.

2008 Mercedes-Benz C-Class C300 Luxury 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 7A)


Review

Picked it up at the factory in Germany and drove it around Europe on the autobahn and back count ry roads. Fun to drive and very responsive on the short on and off-ramps of Europe. Did not get many add-ons (P 1 package only), but it is great. I love my car! Found that the folding mirrors were a godsend in medieval towns where a few streets were unbelievably narrow. The bellhops in every town loved the arctic white--most cars of that model in Europe were black, grey or silver--and I really like the Savannah/cashmere interior. Get the all weather mats though. Could see that the carpet would get dirty rather quickly without them. Especially love the steering.


Best Features

Love the steering radius, the seats and the outside appearance of the design. Enjoyed the pick up when needed. On the highway the mileage was better than I expected.


Worst Features

Some of the controls are not as easy to set as they could be.

2008 Mercedes-Benz C-Class C350 Sport 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 7A)


Review

Owned 2 months, excellent vehicle. Looks and drives very well, well proportioned inside and out. Interior color scheme almost perfect. Stable and quiet at high speeds. Much less noise than BMW 335i tested. Makes previous generation C-class look plain


Best Features

Exterior design, interior design, ergonomics, power, brakes, handling, color, sat radio/nav, dials very easy to read, COMAND system, rear seat/trunk access, large trunk for car size


Worst Features

Automatic transmission kicks down hard on hard driving. Acceleration not linear and responsive to 20 mph unless foot planted to floor. Front bumper too low - scraped first week. iPod connector should be in console - not in glove box. Needs small rear mudflaps

Review

My C350 Sport is almost perfect. Its ride is so smooth yet this cars sporty suspension has very quick reflexes. It also gets 30 MPG cruising over 80 mph! The styling is unbeatable, the car is drop dead gorgeous and the rims are so sporty I didn't even have to upgrade to the AMGs. However where this car falls short is performance. I test drove a Lexus IS350 and BMW 335i both had the same size engine, and same MPGs yet they were much quicker and more powerful. About a full second faster 0-60. Also the interior styling is bland and not as impressive as the exterior. However the fact the this car has Mercedes craftmenship and rock solid engineering made me pick the C350 over the Bimmer and Lexus


Best Features

Love the Sirius, and Harmon Kardon premium sound. P2 package comes with everything! Great gas mileage and a composed ride quality


Worst Features

More power please! the car is wicked fast but could be faster! My friends 08 Accord coupe is faster and the Lexus and BMW are way faster
