2009 Mercedes-Benz C-Class C350 Sport 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 7A)
I bought a mercedes C350 brand new in 09 hoping that buying a new car would save me any car trouble. Unfortunately, I returned the next day to the dealer ship with a fuel engine issue. The car stayed over night to get some engine part replaced. A month later, I had break lights turn on due to corrosion. Another issue was a delay with car taking off, as i would press down on the accelerator the RPM would shoot up but the car wouldnt go. I took the car several times the first year, the dealer ship wasnt able to fix a few things until i escalated the issue to the dealer ship manager at Beshoff in San jose.I have taken in my car over 15 times due to repeating problems. BMW quality is much better
I like how the Monitor screen how it flips open. I like the style of the front grill. I love the tough out appearance.
The car performance needs major improvement:
delay when accelerating, the monitor screen should be touch screen and no joy stick, needs cool air for the seats, need to significantly reduce outside noise, GPS needs to work while driving, voice activation sucks, the bottom fog lights need to both stay on when turning...there are so many issues that a lot of improvements are needed.
