2009 Mercedes-Benz C-Class Sedan C300 Luxury 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 7A)


Review

My wife and I purchased a 2009 C300 this past May at a local dealership. We got employee pricing via a friend who works there. We read a lot of great reviews and some bad reviews and found both sides to be true. The car drives smooth and quietly on highways and backroads but is boring to drive. The suspension is soft but contolled. The engine is smooth but drinks gas like an SUV. It is also not that powerful for a $46k luxury car. The exterior look is what got us to consider it but the interior plastics are very low quality. Steering is a bit disconnected. The brakes feel squishy after long high speed stops.


Favorite Features

Exterior design. Glass roof is unique. Decent trunk size. Good front seat comfort and leg room. Good A/C.


Suggested Improvements

Must address fuel economy- what we get and what EPA states are 2 different things- EPA says 17/25, we see 13/17. Dealer said its quite normal to see 13/17 but there is nothing they can do. Reliability is poor-2 times in just 5 months it needed repairs under warranty-failed start, e-sys, emission control
