2014 Mercedes-Benz C-Class Sedan C250 Luxury 4dr Sedan (1.8L 4cyl Turbo 7A)
Have had C classes since 2009 and this is by far the best. Really like the excellent gas mileage of the C-250 four cylinder engine, often getting well over 36mpg on the oven road and always at least 25mpg in town. Beats out the C-300, though a great car, but a bite more thirsty.
Sporty yet distinguished in appearance. Great ride and handling.
Fuel efficiency, excellent ride and performance. Really like fold-down rear seats as a standard feature.

I would have never rated an MB until the C300 we just bought.
After having it for one week and less than 500 miles on it, it developed a big problem.
My wife was driving it to her office and all of the systems started shutting down.
Steering, temperature controls, radio, etc.
Turns out the main belt, the "Serpentine" belt which controls everything was broken.
I don't understand why this could ever happen on a brand new C300 (nor does the dealer).
Anyone else ever heard of this?
Was mine built during Oktoberfest or is it just a one time thing?
Dealer speculates that it wasn't installed properly at the factory.
Scares me for what else could go wrong!
Fuel saving feature which turns off engine when stopped with brake on.
Do better factory testing before sending vehicle out to consumers.
