2008 Mercedes-Benz C-Class C300 Sport 4MATIC 4dr Sedan AWD (3.0L 6cyl 7A)
First car I've owned that didn't need to go back to the dealership for things going wrong. A very solid, well planted, highway car. We had a 06 Lexus GS300 before the MB and even though the Lexus had a better ride and fuel economy than the C300, there's no comparison to the handling and feel on the road. The Lexus was like driving your father's Buick. We love this car and enjoy every minute we have in it. Can't wait to try it in the snow.
Exterior design, best heated seats in the buisness, 3 memory power front seats with memory mirrors and auto folding with lock up. Harmon Kardon sound system. No gimmick rain sensor wipers. Smooth tranny. Great looks and performace for the price, it's nice to have a car that looks like the family.
Ride is a bit choppy, but I like the handling. A trunk a little larger would be nice. Unless you use the quick shift in "S" mode, there is a lag when you hammer the throttle. Fuel economy could be better.
