Im Quite Happy — Performance is not the best. Is very slow to accelerate unless you are driving in the s setting. Had some issues with the electronics. When is too hot. The automatic windshield wipper turn on. Gas mileage is good. No major mechanical issues. Fun car to own and to drive on the highway.

It's The Best — It has the best performance, acceleration, braking, handling and all. It as needed some repairs like battery changing, oil changing, etc. I love its interior and exterior appearance. It's a lot of fun to drive because it's fast. I think everyone should get one

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Civic Wouldve Been Better — Acceleration is awesome, 9.9s 0-62 mph, handling is awesome, i dnt like the appearance, maintenence is way toooo expensive and eats a lot of fuel, the cars really really very comfy, interior is pretty, black interior. rear wheel drive and trip tronic gear shift. i would recommend this car if u have da paper for the cost of "ownership"! civic would be better to buy.

C240 4matic — Best sedan i've owned.Rides like a large car,plenty of power for a 6 cyl. engine.handles well and is roomy enough inside.Trunk is also spacious for a small sedan.Held value well and sold private for top dollar.Some maintenance pricey as far as the filters but only called for oil change and services every 13000 miles so it kind of evened out

I Love My Ride — Overall I love this car to core, this is a perfect reliable style machine that you can own to get attention from your friends and neighbors. You will not be deep in pockets as per assumptions of others, simply you spend a little extra on oil changes but that is after every 13000 miles unlike every 5000 miles in other cars.

Pros

Nice size car, with good space inside. This is a great little hauler. Excellent handling with four-wheel drive. Handles snow and ice well. Durable interior with comfortable seats. Rides great for a car this size, and super solid build quality, even after 100,000 miles.

Cons

Flimsy cupholder is the only real negative. Could use more power, though it is quick enough for its small V-6. Fuel economy is middling at 21-26 mpg. No 3rd-row seating.

A Very Practical Small Wagon For All Seasons — When I was in the market for a new car, I chose this over others. I had driven one as a loaner car and was amazed at the ride and handling. Since then we moved a household 300 miles with many trips and no issues. It also looks great, with lovely lines. Overall this has been a terrific car

A Safe Way To Go. — Safety & Reliability and AWD to get me to across the mountains in the winter to visit family in Ohio! You can not go wrong with the quality of a Mercedes Benz; It's too bad I get bored with cars so quickly because it will likely last for dozens more.

I Expected Much More From Mercedes In Terms Of Quality Construction. This Area Is A Major Failure. — I thought I was buying a finely tuned automobile in the MB C240. What I have now is a money pit. The problems, such as the rear sun shade that won't retract, deteriorating steering wheel cover, and now a cracked sun roof drain pan ($2,000 repair) are never ending. I had a Honda Accord that lasted 18 years with no MAJOR repairs. It would run circles around the headaches the C240 are creating. For me, this car is soon to be traded. Maybe for a Toyota!

Awesome — Awesome! Fun to drive, very dependable. Lots of power when you need it. great gas mileage for this powerful car. Inexpensive to maintain for a German sportscar. Awesome inside and out, D is always worried about the salt buildup on the car, thats why I get to wash and wax it! Not that I mind >;-P
