Best Of The Best — Car overall is amazing, drives well & personally is more than just a car, its a lifestyle. Once you drive a Mercedes Benz and realize how well assembled this German beauty is, there is no going back to BMW or AUDI and not even a PORSCHE. Benz beats the competition and owns Europe.

I Love The Way This Car Drives And Handles. I Had Acuras For 15 Yrs But Im Now A Mercedes Fan. — i traded in my acura for a mercedes and was immediately impressed. german engineering is superior. the sticker price is well worth the product. awesome in the snow. fun to drive and sporty. very comfortable on long road trips. i felt tired after driving my old car but i felt great even after a 6 hr trip. very reliable, low maintenance. just a solid great car all around. its a head turner too. people always check me out when im driving.

Beautiful Car. Excellant Drive. — Car is great looking well designed car. handles great and has lots of power. Features are convenient once learned though they can be abstract if your used to American vehicles and their layout for things like cruise control and radio controls. no real complaints other than maintenance and repair costs due to car make pricing.

Great Family Sedan — very well put together. German engineering. impeccable road manners. Car is rock steady while braking and cornering. Adequate gas mileage . Affordable entry level luxury. Great sleek looks enhanced by difficult to get steel gray. Dependable. 4 matic adds peace of mind in poor weather conditions.

The Beast — Car is very great overall. I call it a luxury/race car. Great power and torque. Never tried racing it but sometimes I go fast on the highway. Loves the handling. All in all this car is the beast. Will definitely buy the coupe one.

Excellent — This car is an excellent Sports Car. Very great handling and Breaking system. This car is great on gas and has the power of the bigger models. The C 300 is a car for sport driven minded people. Mercedes Benz One great German Car.

Pros

Nice car to drive but it is a little under powered for me, but my wife loves it, and that is all that matters. Handling is not bad, it is pretty tight steering but not enough feedback. The sound system is phenominal.

Cons

Entering destinations into the Nav is bt far the worst I have ever used. I was test driving another Mercedes with the same version nav and told her to try to find the closest Cumberland Farms and she couldn't. If you use the spelling feature, it won't give you the closest one. I used it to find a post office and the first one it brought up was in PR. Yes Puerto Rico. And you cant even drive there

Great Design, Good Space For The Size, Horrible Navigation — This is my wifes car. That said, this review is from her pespective. She owned a 2008 M35 and a 2007 Lexus ES350 before we bought the C300 4matic. The other cars were OK in hr mind but not anything special. The only thing she liked better was, you guessed it, the nav system. She loves the ride, the visibility, the color and comfort.

Pros

Love my car, Luxury and Sporty at the same time!
Beautiful leather interior
Sunroof
Technology all over the place-

Cons

I havent found any yet--other than the cost of parts is steep, but it is what I expected- it's a Mercedes!

Thrilled — I never thought I would want to own a "luxury car" But this car is sporty and luxurious at the same time. It has plenty of techno bells and whistles to keep me satisfied (MP3 player for my Ipod, steering wheel controls for radio, bluetooth hookup for cell phone etc.) It is so comfortable and quiet. I just love the ride.

Awesome Car — Love the styling of the car, very sleek and sexy! It handles very well and has good power. The interior of the car is very well thought out and I just love to be in it. Driving around town becomes less of a chore in this car!
