2013 Mercedes-Benz C-Class C250 Sport 4dr Sedan (1.8L 4cyl Turbo 7A)
Emergency brake did not release, when engaged the first time I used it on my 2013 C250. The dealership told me that it has that problem when it is freezing cold. I have never experienced that problem on any of a half dozen different brands of cars I have driven in my life
2013 Mercedes-Benz C-Class C300 Sport 4MATIC 4dr Sedan AWD (3.5L 6cyl 7A)
I own a 2013 Mercedes C300 Sport 4Matic. This is my second Mercedes and I am very pleased with the car. I purchased my car CPO and got an excellent deal on it. I only paid $21,000 including taxes from Mercedes Benz of Westmont. I bought the car with 32,000 miles. It is black on black with aluminum trim inside with 17" wheels. One thing that really bothered me while looking for my car was how difficult it was to find a "luxury" model as opposed to a sport model as I thought I had preferred the hood ornament. I also could not believe how hard it was to find one withe the lighting package. I should mention that I only looked at CPO's so that made my search a little more refined. Anyway, I ended up settling on the sport model and am happy I did as it looks more aggressive on the road and has more appeal overall as a sports car. I ended up buying a car without the lighting package and had aftermarket LED projector headlights installed with a full LED low and high beam system. The headlights now look very similar to the AMG but even a little better as they have the S class LED bar below the arrow. I spent about $850 on the housings and LED system and it was the best investment I've made in the car. The car looks so much more clean as a result. Overall, I am very happy with the car. All I wanted was an AWD car with great power, handling and looks and the C Class delivers. The 249 hp engine beginning in 2013 really makes a difference in the driving experience too. You can pass on the highway very easily and have 0-60 in 6.0 capability. I have owned the car for 9 months and have had no mechanical or electrical problems whatsoever. I had my service A performed which was $200 at Mercedes and also had to replace the tires due to nails (which was annoying since they were basically new) which cost me $1100. The tires comes with 2 year warranty from Continental.
