    Nice Entry Into The Mercedes Benz World! — I purchase a dealer demo and there has been a number problems. Nice MB entry level car but, please do not plan to keep it for a long time. Yes, the car is fun to drive but, don't be fooled by the MB logo. The quality falls a little short on this model.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Can you say you drive a Mercedes

    Cons: More problems than expected.

    This Car Has Lived Up To All Expectations. — After driving my C240 for more than 70,000 miles it still handles like a new car, with a solid ride and excellent handling and cornering. The only problem was the catalytic converter failure at 60,000, which was covered under the federal warranty. It was replaced by the dealer and shortly after the other one failed (ditto warranty coverage). More than 30 mpg on the interstate, in the low to mid 20s in town. Styling conservative with no squeaks or rattles. A good, solid, reliable car that exhudes luxury to the extent I want or need.

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: Good riding qualities, good fuel economy . Reliable

    Cons: I have no real negatives

    Chill — Better performance, still standard model. good acceleration, braking and handling. Build Quality is good. Appearance is fine, leather interior, silver exterior. Costs a lot more than Ka, and is a diesel. Fun factor is pretty high, fun to drive with

    Pros: Comfort

    Cons: Price

    Love My Car !! — I love my car !!! bought it new in 2002 and runs like a charm...only a few things have had to be repaired . The first 50,000 miles all maintenance issues were covered by Mercedes. I do hate that has changed.

    Pros: Dependable

    Cons: Small

    My Style Coupe — loving the unique-ness of modding it. Performance is ok, though the car is a little heavier than other brands, the interior build quality is amazing, very comfortable. Best part probably is the sun/moon roof. Downside is that, all the euro cars are expensive on maintenance.

    Pros: unique

    Cons: Didn't mod enough

    Nicest Car I Have Owned — Solid, high-quality and dependable car. Classic good looks in keeping with MB tradition. Smoooth, powerful, and responsive. Easy to maneouvre in city traffic and a joy on the highway. At 6 years old, people still comment to me that it looks like a brand new car.

    Pros: Handling, fit and finish, front seat comfort

    Cons: Repair and service costs.

    Fast Comfortable Electrical Nightmare — Fast and comfortable, but the handling suffers. The biggest issue I have with it is the persistent electrical problems. I bought it at a time that I thought I needed a "grown up" car, but still wanted the performance. Now I miss my '93 RX-7. With the automatic transmission, and cushy ride, the only thing that keeps me from getting bored is its ability to accelerate.

    Pros: Acceleration, comfort level

    Cons: Electrical problems, boring driving

    Mb C320 — The quality is unmistakable and it performs like a dream. Repairs can be a little more expensive, but I haven't had to have many repairs. The panoramic sunroof is awesome on a sunny cool day -- even if you can't use it very often in New Orleans. Overall, it's the best car I've owned . . . thus far.

    Pros: Excellent Appearance and Performance

    Cons: Not the Best Car for a Child Seat

    Sports Sedan — Despite most models eventhough the 230 takes high octane it gets around 30mpg. Changing the oil and gerneral inpspection every 10k miles it conveniant opposed to every 3k miles stadard with most cars. For being the lowest end model MB makes its 1.8L superchardged 4 cyclinder its pretty quick, and has excellent handling. Overall I am pleased with the cars looks and features.

    Pros: Great looking, fast, lots of features

    Cons: Small interior, back seat cramped, minor electrical problems

    No Need To Pimp My Ride!! — Super sexy car. Great for drifting. Very economical on the open road. Build quality is very good and loads of fun to drive. Only negative is that it is very expensive to install a bluetooth phone kit. Sound system is fab but not ipod compatible. Definitely not a soccer moms car!

    Pros: everything

    Cons: not really a family car!
