2005 Mercedes-Benz C-Class C55 AMG 4dr Sedan (5.4L 8cyl 5A)


Although a little pricey, this car is worth every cent. After owning other Mercedes, a BMW, a Corvette and a Ferrari, I can honestly say that this car is the most fun and the most practical to drive. It has excellent road manners whether in the city or out on the highway. Even after opening it up on the road, it still gets around 20 mpg. The engine is a masterpiece in sound, speed and appearance. The suspension is fantastic and the tires work very hard. I can only begin to imagine what the C63 will be like.

Best Features

The sound, the power, the handling and the ability to leave almost everything else on the road in the mirror. The sound system is excellent.

Worst Features

The driver's seat could provide a little more support on the sides. The COMAND system was not available; I miss it from my last Benz. The navigation needs to be improved up to the level of the Japanese luxury imports. Parktronic would also be helpful.
