Love my C43! You'll most appreciate
this car highway commuting. Engine is
superb. In general MB lets their
engines average higher revs than BMW
giving the car a more responsive
feel. Fuel economy is not bad at 22
m/gl with spirited, 60% highway
driving. Transmission feels tough and
has a sporty kick when pushed. Interior
offers room for even the tallest
people, is modern but not very techy.
Climate control works great.
So far I've had no major problems.
Problems arising with the car sitting
in heavy rain are a myth - I've had no
electrical issues. If you’re more of a
BMW fan, do yourself a favor and try
MB before deciding. You may be
surprised like I was.

Best Features

Solid, sporty look. Jet-like engine smoothness.

Worst Features

More gadgets! Actually Mercedes has begun to include onboard computers in their newer models... just too bad they didn't note the demand earlier.
