Looks Great But Will Eat All Your Money On Upkeep... — On the motorway or even on a windy country road a C220 CDI is a great drive... heavy, solid, reassuring in corners, smooths out bumps, fantastic speakers and noise proofing and looks great tearing up the country... however after about 200,000 kms everything seemed to break... and I mean everything... A/C broke, Bulbs blew constantly, air flow meters broke constantly, Engine ABS and ESP and other warnings on constantly... Paid thousands of Euros on regular repairs/replacement parts... Eventually it started losing power and ended up being dangerous... I would sooner buy a 1990 vintage MB rather than the 2001 and later models... too much computers and too much to go wrong... stay away.

Classy :) — I love this car. It suits me perfectly. Its a classy Mercedes, not quite as large as the E class so its perfect for young and old alike. It has go power, awesome stereo system (minus cd player), beautiful interior, plenty of storage space, and the ability to shift as a manual car.

Well Built Car, Comfortable And Powerful — This is the new car to the garage, it is a Mercedes Benz C320. With it's styling and V6 engine it is a comfortable and fun to drive car. It comes with all the optional extra's and conveniences. The one convenience I love is the follow me home lights, saves fumbling for the keys for the house door in the dark. The only down fall is the fuel price, but hey if you want to drive this car you must be able to pay for the fuel. :-)

A Fantastic Piece Of Automotive Style — Performance isnt great but not really a performance car more for crusing and has a slight delay when you floor it. Build quality is amazing no squeaks no rattles and no cheap parts. Interior and exterior styling are exquisite just look at it,beautiful lines. Cheap on fuel,even tho its supercharged,parts and sevicing are a whole other thing tho. The car is very fun to drive and you get a whole lot of attention, often from the law tho.

What I Like About My Car — supremely comfortable, handles well, decent power from the 2.6l engine. looks good without being overstated. purchased more for comfort and auto gearbox than because its a mercedes. economy is ok for the size of engine, i managed 33.8mpg over a 460 mile journey. it can be fun to drive if you rev the nuts off it and use the tiptronics 'box. capable of 145, but i've only taken it to 122mph according to my satnav.

Best Vehicle I Have Owned So Far, Next To My Motorcycles — Great body style, performance from the 3.2L v6 is excellent, steering/suspension is very good, not hard like my BMW but can handle corners well with a fairly plush ride, ABS/ESP system works excellent, Interior trim very well put together the rated fuel mileage of 26 mpg is spot on, drive with the active cruise control on @ 72 mph and you can get 28mpg which to me is acceptable considering your in a well built and safe vehicle that has 8 airbags in it to boot

Good Vehicle — good acceleration, reasonable handleing, comfortable to drive long distances, gets good mileage around town around 11 ltrs per 100k and down to 7.5ish on the open road. Quite a good work horse I have put 270,000 k's on it and it still runs well. Can be expensive to repair.I have had to recondition the diff which cost around 8 K services are a standard sort of cost. Overall reasonable vehichle.

Perfect — Performance - great handling. Build quality - the best build i have ever seen, handles side crashes pretty well. Appearance - Leather seats, outside silver color, super. Cost of ownership - fuel is the only down part. Fun factor - it's a sporty yet classy car.
