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


Review

After comparing similar entry-level luxury sedans, the car was competitive in every category. My buying decision came down to styling. Despite the Edmunds editors review, i found the styling lines and the aggressively designed and low front end as final decision maker.


Best Features

The ride is superb. This alone will make you want to buy this vehicle. I gave this car 10 for build quality.


Worst Features

The powerplant is perfectly capable for its class, however, I would want to have few more horses under the hood. I also saw another review of having a place for sunglasses, that would be a nice detail

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


Review

Much improved in every way over my '04 C-240AWD. Beautifully and solidly put together like any M-B should. Smooth power but no hot rod, Though not striking, stylish and functional interior. Sport model has nice balance between ride/comfort and sporty handling. The C-Class is not dazzling in any one area but the sum of the parts equals one fine, substantial all around car.


Best Features

Sound System, Suspension, build Quality


Worst Features

better throttle response. more supple dash and door textures.

Review

Last Mercedes was a 1986e. Awful. Switched to Saabs and then two Bmw 5's and finally a Bmw 330x. Cabin too small on the Bmw 3 and the run flat tires are awful. The C300 Sport 4 matic,( don't laugh,) performs like the 5 series only more nimble. Plenty of power and stability. Interior is a little austere and the trunk is just too small. Close call over the Audi 4 but on balance a more solid feel without those silly led headlights.


Best Features

Ride and handling


Worst Features

larger trunk. Better gas mileage.

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


Review

This is my second review after 10 months and 10,800 miles. Please, see the very first review in the series. I am overall very happy with the car. The ride is solid, well controlled, and the steering is light, which I personally like. Surprised to read others' horror stories about gas consumption as I get 17-18 mpg in the city and 28-30 on the highway at 65 mpg. The manual shifter is not the slickest on the market (Acura TSX is better, I tried), but pretty short throw and works without failure. The car isn't super fast from the start, but enough power for me (after all it's 228 hp, not 300 like some others). Like how quiet the car is. The electronics are great (got P2 package).


Best Features

Ride quality, exterior looks, interior (may not be super luxurious, but very functional)


Worst Features

Interior storage space.

Review

I don't think you are going to believe what my wife and I just experienced this afternoon: Just bought a brand-new C300 from Smythe Europeans about 5 hours ago. Very nice, short experience with the sales manager: Nice guy, very good deal. We got home, noticed that a bigger chunk of rubber was sticking out in the corner of the driver's door. Also inside, a little piece of carpet between passenger's seat and the middle was missing. We drove back "Sorry, can't do anything, you need to come back on Monday." 2nd time coming home, the long rubber piece below the driver's door CAME OFF - literally! Can you believe it? Nice design, but my wife can't even enjoy the first day with her new car now...

Quality, quality, quality. A Mercedes should not fall apart on the way home. Thank god, we didn't loose that long rubber piece on the freeway. Boy, this kills the excitement of a new car. Sorry, but I am really disappointed. Tough to see that my wife being sad on the first day with her new car.
