2009 Mercedes-Benz C-Class C300 Sport 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 6M)


Review

Have had for almost a year now-still unusually ecstatic. Granted only driven it 3000 miles but have had absolutely no issues at all(other than the signal lever/cruise lever are too close together). MB Tex is much better than leather (although others can't tell the difference). Fold down rear seats have proved wonderful. Just loaned it to friends for the past week and they don't want to give it back now-it is a sports, luxury car and love the sporty look and drive.


Best Features

Pop up navigation screen - just looks cool. Incredible sound system. Look/drive/all around package.


Worst Features

a little more space between signal/cruise levers.

2009 Mercedes-Benz C-Class C300 Sport 4MATIC 4dr Sedan AWD (3.0L 6cyl 7A)


Review

I live up at Lake Tahoe, the C300 has performed flawlessly at altitude in snow, ice, hot weather, cold weather... Better ride and quieter than my 03 BMW XI 3-series. Solid handling and no maintenance issues to date.


Best Features

Sunroof and Ipod jack included in base model. Good sounding base model stereo system.

Review

Traded my 2000 BMW 323ci for this car about 6 weeks ago. Have to say I am very impressed. From the moment you walk up to this car, it says, "I mean business." Outstanding exterior styling - mine is Mars Red and has the 18" AMG wheels. Can't tell you how many comments I've gotten from total strangers at the gas pump or grocery store. Inside, things are well- organized and comfortable. Not sure why they put two control stalks on the left side of the steering wheel and none on the right, but you get used to it. Great manual tranny - shifter at least as precise as the Bimmer's. Excellent stability in braking and cornering, good power. Overall great car!


Best Features

Exterior styling and transmission are as good as any I have seen or driven.


Worst Features

Fuel mileage is not good at all - I get only about 18-19 in town after years of 23-25 with my BMW. Back seat is TIGHT.

2009 Mercedes-Benz C-Class C63 AMG 4dr Sedan (6.2L 8cyl 7A)


Review

Drove the CTS-V before the C63 AMG. Got such a great deal, never bothered to drive the M3. CTS-V was a boat compared to the C63. Such great responsiveness and a feeling of complete control with the AMG. A friend of mine put it perfectly: This car feels like you are driving a go cart. Hard to pass somebody without getting close to 100. So much faster than my Lexus GS 430. Can't wait to fire it up to hear the great exhaust sound. Sounds more like a lamborghini. Also like the fact that it is a sports car with four doors so can put the kids or cargo in the back. Would definitely buy this car again without hesitation! Simply AWESOME!


Best Features

Engine, exhaust growl, handling, AMG seats, navigation and great sound system


Worst Features

Keyless entry and ignition (understand this is available on the 2010 model), windshield washers at front of car so causes water spots on my metallic black paint when I use them

Review

This is my 3rd C class Mercedes, following a 2001 C240 and a 2005 C230 Kompressor, and is easily the best of the lot. It is faster than any of my previous ones, more luxurious and far better built. The only area where it fails to live up, at least to my 2005, is in its aggression-factor. The 2005 C230 Sport was simply a far more aggressive car, with much stiffer springs, deeper and firmer bolstering on the seats and a loud and sporty exhaust. Of course, the new car is far more luxurious and still adequately sporty.


Best Features

FIRM MERCEDES SEATS!!!!! Excellent balance of ride and handling No squeaks or rattles


Worst Features

Steering wheel (3 spoke) looks a little cheaper than the one in the 2005.
