C240 4matic — Best sedan i've owned.Rides like a large car,plenty of power for a 6 cyl. engine.handles well and is roomy enough inside.Trunk is also spacious for a small sedan.Held value well and sold private for top dollar.Some maintenance pricey as far as the filters but only called for oil change and services every 13000 miles so it kind of evened out

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: good mileage  spacious for small sedan  reliable

Cons: service pricey at the B service intervals which came at 26000 mile intervals

Stealth — I love a sedan that behaves like a true sports car. With the C55, I have just enough power, I feel connected to the road and yet it's comfortable enough that I can take it for long drives. The build is solid. Nothing about this car is looks cheap. The sound system is great though I must say most of the sounds are in the front of the cabin. I don't like the fact the steering is too heavy. The brakes are great. It's sits an inch lower and an inch wider than the other C-Class models I believe. The front end slopes down sharper than the other models as well.

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

Pros: Love the Interior. Seats are wide and comfortable. Nothing looks cheap. Powerful V8 with 363 hp. It's a STEALTH-looks like a family car but it behaves like a true sports car!!!

Cons: Heavy Steering, wish they designed it way different from other C-class cars considering the price

I Love My Ride — Overall I love this car to core, this is a perfect reliable style machine that you can own to get attention from your friends and neighbors. You will not be deep in pockets as per assumptions of others, simply you spend a little extra on oil changes but that is after every 13000 miles unlike every 5000 miles in other cars.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Great commuter car that always catches people attention, perfect for a first time premium car buyer with low maintenance.

Cons: i dint see anything till now

Sport And Luxury, Combined With Fuel Efficiency. What Not To Like? — Great, powerful, sporty, comfortable car. Leather sits, huge sunroof, Bose stereo, power everything, smooth and fun ride. Goes easily up the very steep hill, great for commute and pleasure. Large enough for a family. Very safe, with front and side airbags.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Sport and luxury, combined with fuel efficiency. What not to like?

Cons: does not qualify for HOV stickers (that hwy I am selling it)

A Very Practical Small Wagon For All Seasons — When I was in the market for a new car, I chose this over others. I had driven one as a loaner car and was amazed at the ride and handling. Since then we moved a household 300 miles with many trips and no issues. It also looks great, with lovely lines. Overall this has been a terrific car

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Nice size car, with good space inside. This is a great little hauler. Excellent handling with four-wheel drive. Handles snow and ice well. Durable interior with comfortable seats. Rides great for a car this size, and super solid build quality, even after 100,000 miles.

Cons: Flimsy cupholder is the only real negative. Could use more power, though it is quick enough for its small V-6. Fuel economy is middling at 21-26 mpg. No 3rd-row seating.
