Pros

The C300 feels like a magic carpet ride.  It is silky smooth with good power and handling. The cabin is quiet and all the controls have a great feel to them.

Cons

Fuel mileage could be better, but observed mileage ranging from 24-26 mpg in a performance sedan with AWD isn't all that bad.

Affordable Luxury And Performance — So far, I like everything about this car other than the low-beam headlights. They have a sharp cutoff that doesn't light up the road as far out as I'd like and there are no driving lights to augment them. Overall, given the other positives, this is a nit. The seats are comfortable, the power comes on quickly and smoothly, and the car handles very well. It's a great place to relax at the end of a long day in Corporate America.

High Performance Car — This V8 car has a lot of performance, great acceleration, but then the MPG on it very low, it usually gets about 11 miles per gallon. The different modes which are comfort, sport, sport+, manual and they are all amazing.

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

Increased Performance And Pleasure To Drive — I own the predessor C230 and I was pleased with it but now Im very pleased with my new MB. Overall I've had this vehicle for a year and it has yet to disappoint me like GM has in the past and continues to do.

It's Ok But Will Be Returning At End Of Lease — Not comfortable to take on trip of any length. Styling is ok, etc. but my new 2013 Hyundai Sonata LTD has better features, more comfortable, better ride, etc. I leased this car for 3 years to see if I really wanted another Mercedes but have since decided that other cars have better options, better styling, etc. Will probably not be purchasing another Mercedes in the near future. Interesting? Hmm..

Beautiful High Performance Ride — I love the sound of this car's engine and its performance - just a small punch of the accelerator and you are miles ahead of the pack. I feel very safe in this car - I totalled a Mercedes 350 SLK a few years ago and walked away unscratched. Car brakes on a dime and has lots of safety features to keep you in your lane and focused on the road. Highly recommend.

Solid — Frankly, this car is what I expect when purchasing German engineering. This is my second C Class--I traded a 2004 240 4-matic purchased new...I anticipate my next new car purchase will be a C350 4-matic coupe...

Overall A Great Buy — It's a great car, what you can expect from a Mercedes-Benz, has great handling, if you get the premium Hardon/Kardon speakers, they're amazing. It;s a great car with many safety features, but if you're looking for something more sporty you should turn your head to BMW.

Built quality and technology used in the car ..

Cons

If the car was ALL Wheel Drive then the handling would have been much better..

Quick 4 Door Compact Sedan — Performance - Acc : 0-100km 6.0s Braking : Dont know the figures but it's ventilated & perforated disks. Sometimes the car slips when going around corners fast, but Built quality is great and the new 2012 looks are far better than the old one ..!
