2009 Mercedes-Benz C-Class Sedan C350 Sport 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 7A)

Review

I picked my C350W at the Sindelfingen factory as part of the European Delivery Alps/Black Forest rally trip. The level of comfort, quiet, and road performance is simply outstanding. As an engineer I really appreciate all of the hidden details and overall sophistication in the design features. I have driven stretches of autobahn at 110 MPH and the car is serenely quiet and rock solid at this speed. This is combined with strong brakes, effortless tracking on winding country roads, and unexpectdly good mileage on this trip 24.9 MPG overall. Firm seating comfortable for long stretches, awesome HK Logic 7 sound system, smart HID lights, and great instrumentation and controls.

Not impressed after just 5 months

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.

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

Review

I have owned many cars over my lifetime and I have not had a car as quality crafted, as well thought out, as sensuously feeling and as nice looking as this new C300 model. I owned an S500 in 2000 and a Porsche Cayenne, so I am used to quality cars. This car is better. It's quiet (big deal to me) and it's fast enough. It's not as fast as others in this price range, but it's not a high priority to have super fast pick-up. The electronics are the best I have seen and I shopped for a year. My small list of complaints is that it doesn't have a place for sunglasses and the iPod contents are visible on the dash screen, not on the console screen, it should be. Test drive this car, fantastic!

Review

Car seems to have much more HP than advertised. Engine lot of torque at low RPM, transmission always find best gear. It's a great car for normal driving, it's only when you floor it that you realize it has only 220hp. Very solid chassis, good handling, nice ride. Interior is very high quality. Lumbar adjustment and center console opener bit hard to reach. 09 has pelvic airbags, memory seats, power adjust. steering wheel, but no power fold in mirrors. Tech. in car is very advanced and very easy to use. Stereo is excellent. Ipod works great. Navi will give street names in center of speedometer. voice contrl.Front end low, easy to scrape. Car needs very little maintenance, interval is 10k.

Review

I have a C300 Luxury 4 Matic, Premium 1 & Multimedia packages, IPod Integration Kit. I have test driven Lexus ES and BMW 3 series sedan and found that this car is by far more enjoyable to drive. The C300 Luxury sedan easily wins in value and prestige for the money. 2009 model has 40GB hard drive and 3 memory settings for the driver seat, which includes the power wheel, and mirrors settings.

2009 Mercedes-Benz C-Class Sedan C300 Sport 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 6M)

Review

2009 Mercedes-Benz C-Class C300 Sport Sedan has met all of my expectations for a sport sedan. The performance and look of this car is terrific. I have a C300 Sport with the 6 speed manual transmission, Premium 1 & Multimedia packages, IPod Integration Kit, and the 18” AMG wheels. I have driven many cars of different make, model and price range. The C300 Sport Sedan easily wins in value and prestige for the money.

A awesome car

Review

Got the Mercedes after having being a happy driver of two Honda Accords since 1994. Then carefully planned a new purchase after having tried many similar size, entry level, luxury sedans, both German and Japanese. Went for the Mercedes for its optimal combination of smooth ride quality, plenty of power (last Honda was around 140 hp), quality built, and of course the looks. Mine came manual (still love the thrill of shifting gears), with all the "high end packages", so came to about 42,000 $, pretty similar to other cars in that category. So far driven it for a week, with a good combo of city and highway mileage, and love it. And any manual car only gets better with time!
