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

Beautiful Dependable Sporty Car. — This car rides and drives great. The look of this car is very family spotty. The average family can finally afford a Mercedes . This car is getting 29 mpg. The only reason I'm getting rid of thus car is I need something with more space. The front seats are spacious but for adults the backseat is not spacious.

Pros

A big motor in a little sedan, is all I ever wanted from a daily driver.  Six years and 62k miles, best car I have ever owned.  

Cons

There is nothing that I hate about the car beyond some minor issues...  The ugly black Satellite radio antenna wart on the trunk lid, smaller and body colored the next model year.  And I guess maybe the lack of leg room for rear seat passengers, but again I did not buy the car to use as a limo

Still The Best Performance Value Out There, Tons Of The Best German Engineering For Very Little Coin — With 362 brake horse power my C55 can be scary fast! Taking the car onto the track for a full weekend of driving proved to be easy, the brakes never faded, the handling was great, predictable and confidence inspiring. Build quality is way up there of course, a very solid well made car. The car is a Q ship, does not scream attention, but those who know what AMG means, it says volumes. Gas mileage is not great, about 17 mpg, but I did not buy it for fuel economy! The extended warranty has been great to cover the things that wear out and break, maintenance is no greater then any other high end car. The Fun Factor is why I got the car, and on the road or track the grins and smiles never fade or get old.

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.

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

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
