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.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

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.

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.)

Pros: Great car

Cons: too much gas

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..

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

Pros: Nice design

Cons: Navigation system and radio/etc. is really cumbersome to use.

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.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Fast, great handling, fun to drive or ride in.  Great for roadtrips

Cons: Gas mileage

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...

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Excellent car in adverse weather.  

Cons: No complaints

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.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Great feel, good brakes, nice engine, good handling

Cons: smaller than its competitors

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 ..!

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Built quality and technology used in the car ..

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

This New For 2012 Is The Best C-class Yet And Much More Attractive Than The 3 Series, Infiniti G.... — I've had 10 Luxury cars of various makes and models in recent years and this by far is my favorite. It does everything well, but I'd say the steering/handling/refinement/efficiency/power and appearance make it the best car for me.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: It's appearance is by far best in class

Cons: Paying for it.
