2011 Mercedes-Benz C-Class C300 Sport 4MATIC 4dr Sedan AWD (3.0L 6cyl 7A)
Great car. Love the aesthetics and the red paint is a real eye-catcher. The 4Matic works great even here in the snowy North Hills of Pittsburgh. The seven-speed transmission never dissapoints, and knows when to hold a gear while descending hills or even during a pause in acceleration. Fuel economy is acceptable, but ride and comfort are outstanding.
The COMMAND interface to navigation and sound system are quite easy to use. Not to mention, my C300 is quiet and tight as a drum. Certified used means my C300 gets a full factory warranty for three years.
Couple things. I've driven the CLA and I'd rather have its 2.0L engine for the useable power band. I also think that a luxury car with a sticker of $48K when new should have leather seats, although the MBTex is decent and I am satisfied with it.
