2008 Mercedes-Benz C-Class C300 Luxury 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 7A)


...and I agree! Got fully loaded Luxury one Oct. 24th, but waited to really know car before review. Amazed how much more impressed with it after the purchase than anticipated. Great ride & maneuverability, rapid passing & breaking, much quicker than the numbers would have you believe... guess because the 7 spd. tranny gets optimal use of power at any speed. One reviewer here wanted backup sensors to be available, they already are... we got the "QuickPark" option on ours. Love sending google & yahoo map entries to car from any computer via "Search & Send" feature with the TeleAid & MultiMedia options. Great interior & exterior lighting, actually enjoy night driving again. Highly recommend!

Best Features

Quiet ride, appearance & 2 tone grey/black interior, sunroof in up vented position somehow doesn't let one drop of water in while driving in downpours, automatic self-leveling head lights, automatic wipers, great ergonomics & comfortable heated seats, decent mpg for such nimbleness, ashtrays, all good

Worst Features

Everything's great as is in our belief, especially all the details like venting trapped air under the car at high speed thru holes around tail lights, keeping a couple of steaks cool in the air-conditioned glove box from butcher to home, etc. Would be nice for 2 driver memory seats/mirrors though
