Pros

Comfortable, quiet, reliable, fast as hell for a 4-door sedan. AMG brakes are amazing too.

Cons

Doesn't corner as well as my BMW 5-series.  Only seats 4.

Great Car! Wish I Could Keep It Forever!! — Great daily driver car. If you are required to commute to work everyday. why not do it in a car that can make heart thump by just a simple squeeze on the gas pedal. Total blast smoking the ricers, vettes, GTOs, porsches, most BMWs, Audi's... you name it :-)

Pros

Arguably the most beautiful sedan that Mercedes ever produced.

Cons

Many people believe it is a C-Class based vehicle, but in fact it is built on the E-Class chassis, giving is substantially more room inside.

Rock Solid, Head Turner. It's Got All Of The Right Equipment, And Pedigree. — I've personally owned the equivalent running gear in an E class, but my E, was an AMG which produced amazing power. It also came with an amazing maintence cost. This is the best of both worlds, great design, with more than sufficient power and performance.

Beautiful And Powerful — Love this car. Beautiful and powerful. Valet's always put it upfront, a definite head turner. Makes driving anywhere fun and a true pleasure to drive. Have not owned a nicer ride and probably won't ever. Small back seats are the only real con about this car but rarely had 4 in there anyway.

One Of The Best Car From Germany — When i see it i was stunned.The way that car looks is very special.Actually that is a four dour saloon and it looks like coupe.I kind a like that .So i decide to buy one.Of course it cost me a lot of money.But that money gave me one of the best car ever . I was amazed how nice is the ride or from the power that is like a nuke,but the best of all is the luxury .Its like everything is made to make you happy.The Mercedes is fun to drive, but safe too. Of course it have some downsides like the fuel economy,but that is small problem if you want to buy that car. In the end i want to say that this car I think will return the old glory of Mercedes.

Cons

Would Be Better If I Had The Amg Or Black Edition. — the sunroof is interesting. and the 'manual shifting', way too delayed. The styling is awesome, kinda UFO-like. The sound sytem stock is ok, nothing to really brag about. The handling into corner isn't your standard sedan. It going to last a long time.

had to go to the shop a lot of times but the "new car" kinks are worked out in the later models.

Quick! — Real quick handles. The best was to fishtail the backend coming off of the green light.

Well, Not For Today's Gas Price — the car's got it's problems, computer bugs you for things like you've over pumped the tires, it'll have warning signs popping out while you're driving, and with beeping noise, you'll have to reset your computer to get that crap to stop, A/C on all Mercedes-Benz suck...

Pros

Beautiful lines, gorgeous over all look & design. Great power and tight
performance for car of this size. Luxury oozes from everywhere from lighting
to lights turning to stereo, back-seat, A/C adjustments, you name it, this car
has it.

Cons

None come to mind. This car is perfect. Well, except gas mileage is a bit weak
and original cost even used was not cheap. But, you get what you pay for.

Gorgeous Sports "sedan" — This is one refined luxury car. Mercedes made huge design changes starting with this car. It's quality, fit and finish are all Mercedes and are well above par. Driving this car makes you feel like a million bucks and with the after-market wheels, it definitely looks better. Both driving and luxury appointments are so well balanced and exciting, even 2 years old, it's great to drive and performance is there when you need it.
