2009 Mercedes-Benz C-Class C300 Sport 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 6M)
This is my second review after 10 months and 10,800 miles. Please, see the very first review in the series. I am overall very happy with the car. The ride is solid, well controlled, and the steering is light, which I personally like. Surprised to read others' horror stories about gas consumption as I get 17-18 mpg in the city and 28-30 on the highway at 65 mpg. The manual shifter is not the slickest on the market (Acura TSX is better, I tried), but pretty short throw and works without failure. The car isn't super fast from the start, but enough power for me (after all it's 228 hp, not 300 like some others). Like how quiet the car is. The electronics are great (got P2 package).
Ride quality, exterior looks, interior (may not be super luxurious, but very functional)
