This car saved my life...literally.

In March 2010, I was at a stop light routinely waiting my turn to proceed forward. Without warning, I saw the grill of a GMC SUV for a split second before it crashed into the rear of my car. Police estimated that the vehicle was traveling between 35-40 mph. Though the Benz was totaled and I sustained injuries - I'm here to tell you that this car saved my life. The standard safety features the C300 offers speaks volumes about Benz build quality... Thank you Mercedes-Benz.

8 Years and still like new

I've enjoyed my C300 for 8 years, and the ONLY repair issue I've had in that time is replacement of a headlight switch on the dashboard. I've owned a number of "luxury" vehicles over 50 years, and this C300 has the finest engine/transmission I've driven. Smooth, powerful, and fuel efficient.

I just sold my 2009 C300 Sport after two years and 80,000 miles of driving. I bought it new, religiously followed the maintenance schedule and replaced the Continental tires with the same every 30,000 miles. This car was flawless in every way. Nothing ever broke, and it never needed anything beyond regular maintenance, which for 80,000 miles is very impressive indeed. The car was fast enough, fun to drive, and extremely comfortable, even on the two occasions when I drove 1,100 miles in a single day. Best thing to say about it is that I traded it in for a new 2012 C250 Sport sedan, and expect the same great service from the new one. I was sad to see it go.

Not impressed after just 5 months

My wife and I purchased a 2009 C300 this past May at a local dealership. We got employee pricing via a friend who works there. We read a lot of great reviews and some bad reviews and found both sides to be true. The car drives smooth and quietly on highways and backroads but is boring to drive. The suspension is soft but contolled. The engine is smooth but drinks gas like an SUV. It is also not that powerful for a $46k luxury car. The exterior look is what got us to consider it but the interior plastics are very low quality. Steering is a bit disconnected. The brakes feel squishy after long high speed stops.

This car has 162,000 miles on it. You would never know it to look at it or drive it. It is so quiet that when you stand outside it and the engine is running, you can’t tell. Almost all of themiles are hiway Miles, as I used it heavily for business travel. I got over 31mpg on the highway. The car doesn’t even have a door ding on it! I bought an extended bumper to bumper warranty for $80/mo, which lasts as long as I continue to pay the fee, and it is transferable. The interior is as clean as the exterior. The performance is beyond believe. The rate at which it accelerates can get you out of dangerous traffic situations on the freeway, or anywhere else. It has a hookup for an iPod, has Bluetooth, and plenty of room. I’m 6’6”, and can drive it with my legs fully extended. It will make a u-turn in the smallest radius I’ve ever seen, on any street without having to use reverse. It’s been judiciously maintained, no accidents, and no major repairs. I have only put Michelin tires bought at a Mercedes dealership on the car. With the offset build of the suspension, meaning the rear tires are one inch wider than the front tires, and AWD, I have driven this car through three nasty blizzards, and never lost my footing, even when cars around me were spinning into the ditch. This is one great car!
