2010 Mercedes-Benz C-Class C300 Sport 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 6M)
Purchased in Dec09 was finally delivered Feb10 but NOT AS SPECIFIED, no HK stereo, no iPod interface, no 5-spoke rims. Dealer Automotriz Stuttgart refuses any adjustment. After only 2,400 miles the paint had flaked off the hood medallion, seats are horribly wrinkled, Bluetooth faulty, Stereo 20 system so distorted it is unusable besides missing a speaker. Worst is performance, takes a full 2-3 seconds after accelerator is fully depressed to get ANY reaction from the engine. When purchasing, make sure you take YOUR C class out for an extensive test drive and QC check BEFORE signing, as many MB dealers are famous to send their customers to hell after taking your money. Buyer beware.
Best looking sedan period. Performance supposed to be OK. Bluetooth and iPod interface. Rear seat room. Front pass. seat adjustments. Engine so quiet at idle one has to check the tach, impressive. Get the HK sound system, the Audio 20 is horrible. Headlight illumination. Build quality of FORD better
Ergonomics worst compared to BMW, Audi or Yugo. Int. illumination 7 buttons none logically located or identified. 27 buttons on stereo. Auto speed control constantly confused with turn signal. Wiper control in turn signal is stupid. Air cond. system forgets settings. Steering vague. Noisy on highway
