The 2007, M - B - C 350 - Deep Power, Crisp Handling, Great Appearance - As Advertised! — I picked up my 2007 (the review parameter allowed only 2006), C 350 Sports Sedan (U.S. Spec.) from the Stuttgart factory in November. As I pulled away from the factory and entered the Autobahn, I realized that I was driving my dream. Deep power and crisp handling kept me in the fast lane where one needs to generate at least 110+mph - the C 350 readily lead the pack easily cruising at 125mph. The 7 speed automatic was silky, shifting smoothly up and down the gear range. Comfortable sport seating and excellent vision in all directions enabled exceptional road condition management. Heavy rain as I approached my destination was easily managed by the rain sensing wiper system and tires that were sure-footed on all surfaces at speed. The 350 continues to deliver the performance, comfort and reliability that made it a clear choice over the Audi A4 and 3 Series BMW.

Amazing Car For A Driving Enthusiast — The handling is second to none for its price. It will put your gentleman's bits in your throat when you push it through a tight corner. Turn the traction control off and hit the high revs if you want to get squirrely. Once you master the timing of the 7-speed semi-automatic transmission it is fantastic. Avoid potholes at all costs or you may need to see a dentist to have your fillings replaced. This is a true driver's car. Find a twisty road and push it. You'll find it will hold grip far beyond what you would expect. If you want a super-smooth ride, buy a Cadillac... then watch me blow your doors off in the corners.

Great For Around Town And Highway, And Picking Up Your Dates, And Its Fast. — Acceleration- pretty quick off the line. Braking- very nice. Handling- put this baby in sport, and you ain't slipping off the road. Very nice build. It comfortable and very fun to drive. Looks stunning and has class. It's okay on the gas mileage. About 20mpg city and 23-26mpg on highway. Has had no maintenanace problems thus far. Its has about 36,000 miles on it. Once again, great car to drive.

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

Pros

looks and performance. very rare car.

Cons

mileage and small gas tank. but who really buys this car for the mileage?

My Car — awesome car. i would prefer an AMG to anyone who would want both excellent performance and awesome styling. the 5.5 liter v-8 roars as you accelerate and the exceleration is not comparable to other luxury makers. maintenance is very low to none as well.

C230 Review — Solid Built Car. Put a car up on a lift to get a true picture of quality. Performs great for what it is. Maintenance would be costly if actually taken to dealer, but do it yourself and get a hookup on parts. Styling is classic benz, the new C class is too cookie cutter Import. The turning radius is ridiculous also :)

2006 Mercedes-benz C230 Sport — I liked most everything about the car and even moreso when I customized it. However, purchasing a vehicle with a rebuilt title is something I will most likely never do again. Mechanically it performs like a dream but there are some small things cosmetically that I am not fond of. Call me picky but I take good care of my cars and something like that makes it seem otherwise.

Its Like A Coupe With 4 Doors — This car literally gets me where I wanna go with time to spear; I would call it " time traveling" it's really cool the reaction i get when barely hit the gas pedal, so unbelievable such a small cars has a big v8 engine in it, you would never expect it .

Pros

I loved that car!

Cons

The thing I hate most about it is that all that was left is the license plate.

Awesome Car — Loved everything about that car except that it was an automatic transmission but there were only two for sale in the country and neither one had a stick shift. Didn't really matter though, favorite car I ever owned, the Audi was cool too.

Value For Money — Sleek handy elegant car with sufficient power although more would be welcome. Fun to drive especially with the 7gear automatic box. Steering not razor sharp but still way above average. Spacious in front, less in the back. Still goodlooking after years of satisfactory driving: value for money!
