Nice car to drive. Terrible car to operate! Nav. and entertainment system is old technology--small screen and tedious to operate. Must have the radio on to get backup camera. Back up camera points downward and wording on screen blocks view. Clump of levers on left side of steering wheel and nothing on right side. USB port at bottom of console compartment. Temperature controls too far down in center stack. Door lock knob protrudes too far up (hit funny bone too many times at drive through window). Terrible foot room in back seat. Humming noise after shutting off engine. Lag in engine during initial acceleration. On high speed, wipers don't move fast enough to get rid of heavy rain. Car chews up shoulders on front tires. Imitation leather is actually nice. Last Mercedes I'll ever lease/buy.
2013 Mercedes-Benz C-Class C300 Sport 4MATIC 4dr Sedan AWD (3.5L 6cyl 7A)
This little car makes getting around town a breeze. On long trips, the fuel costs are as promised by marketing literature. Handling on wet or icy roads has been reassuring due to the sturdy feel of the braking and steering systems. Great visibility throughout for safer lane changes, etc. Love the mocha/almond interior and seat warmers. Temperature zones adjust beautifully for individual comfort. Trip facts on mileage, time and distance are well laid out. Sound system suits the mood by caressing or rocking riders.
