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.

None

Cons

More hype than substance. Had to replace the entire transmission and transfer case at 56,000 miles with no help from Mercedes. History of transmission pump and valve body problems. Mechanically unsound design of transmission one-piece assembly. NO admission of the above issue by Mercedes dealer. Repairs cost 1/3 the price of the car. Do not buy this vehicle.

High-priced Junk. Stick With Bmw, Honda Or Toyota. — I bought the car under the Mercedes certified pre-owned plan because I believed I was getting reliability - I did not. Within a few months of purchase, a loud popping developed in the right front suspension. I took it in for repair and was told the mechanic "forgot to tighten down a bolt." A few months later, the same sound developed in the rear suspension. Diagnosed as the same problem. So much for Mercedes' expertly trained technicians. Later the transmission gaskets were leaking and had to be replaced for $1,000. The a bearing in the transfer case failed most likely due to a faulty transmission pump. I had to replace the entire transmission assembly because that is "the way it was designed." Another $7,000 for a car with 56,000 miles on the odometer. Problems with the valve body and tranny pump are well documented on this vehicle. I have heard Mercedes re-designed these units but that is no help if you aer stuck with the early design. This is not a good vehicle.

35+ U Can Buy — Its a comfortable car cant talk too much about its performance though its a car for people who enjoy easy driving not a car for an enthusiast, its not a driver driven car. No i am not too poetic but yeah some times here and there.

Once You Drive This Car, You Won't Want To Get Out — The acceleration and handling keeps a smile firmly planted on my face. The carbon fibre interior looks great and every control is right where you want it. The seats are bolstered to really hold you in place and yet they're extremely comfortable. The exhaust note is very addictive. It's a little thirsty with the gas but with this type of engine it's actually not that bad. The build quality on this car is excellent. I haven't been able to find anything I dislike about this car.

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

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.

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.

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.
