Pros

Enough Pep in Acceleration esp on sport mode
Interior is nice and simple not to fancy
gas mileage
easy on the eye
Very Reliable

Cons

Maintenance isn't bad, but for major parts pricey, but that just German cars;
Horse Power for a V6 is to low only 200hp
Backroom seating is decent but manageable, not to big n not to little but easily beats the CLA 250 model

Mercedes C 230 — Overall, it is a beautiful car, comfortable and fast. Drives well and steady. Great for commuting to work or bigger trips. I recommend it to anyone who enjoys Mercedes brand. As always high quality car and perfect, detailed machine. Looking to buy more.

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.

Keeper — given that Ive had this car since it was new and now it has over 100K and still performing optimally. I would recommnend it for almost anyone who is looking for sportiness and dependability as well as excellent customer service from MB when needed.

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 .

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.

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.

Pros

looks and performance. very rare car.

Cons

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

55

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.

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.
