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

Pros

built quality, handling, gas mileage

Cons

maintenance cost, low hp

25

Although A Bit Expensive It's A Really Good Car. — Normal car, torque from low revs really helps for powerslides and economy, top-notch build quality, amazing brakes and handling thanks to evolution pack, the exterior styling could be better in the rear section, interior is very nice looking, although the space in the back isn't enough for a tall person, gas mileage is very good(in long trips you can get below 8 L/km), maintenance cost is quite high since it's a Mercedes, the car is generally really good and after the tyres are warmed up you can have a very good drive.

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

Black Widow — I love everything besides getting pulled over constantly by the cops. Its super fast and great in handling in all surfaces besides ice. Its pretty decent in gas mileage but then again you don't buy a performance car for the mileage lol.

Lack of performance

Great Car, But Slow — Handling is good, ride is good, interior is great. The only downside.........OMG why is it so SLOW?! Also, be prepared to pay premium service fees. This car is fun to drive, but be sure to get a manual transmission, keeping the rev up is important in this car.
