- My wife just loves this car!
- Mercedes Benz Financial does not offer competitive rates. Cant enjoy writing car payment to BB&T
With this car you get the safety of automatic four wheel drive and the status of owning a Mercedes Benz.

- Pretty quick for an entry level Mercedes and 7 speed auto stick.
- Night and day compared to my C55
So I got a 2006 C280 loaner when I took my C55 in for service. Having much said and heard on the Mercedes Forum, the C class other than the AMGs are the less potent entry level Mercedes and they are considered slow by most members on the board. To my surprise, the feel and the control of the C280 is almost close to my beloved C55 AMG. What impressed me the most is the 7 speed auto stick on the 2006 C280. After upshift multiple gears and punching it during tight turns and going on the freeway on ramp, I am convinced that a 7 speed auto stick is a must for the new C class AMG. The car responded beautifully when I upshift, redlining and going through all gears. The pick up speed on the car is some what unexpected. Over all I really liked the C280 and I would recommend this car over BMW 325 or even the 330 any day. Not to mention it is nicely priced fully loaded....read morehide

- Feels rich , specially with the wooden panels and trims in the dashboard and doors .
- None, or maybe the cabin could have been slightly bigger.
This benz has a an italian flavor in its interior styling , which reminds me of these yachts in portofino on the italian reviera. Needless 2 say that the build is pure garman excellant ingenuity.

- The only con I can think of is that it takes a while to learn how to use the computer control system
I need a car that will perform well in the extreme weather conditions here in Salt Lake City. This is the perfect luxury car for my needs. I've had two used C series in the past, and a used E series. There were drawbacks with both, though I loved them. This is my first brand new one, and in my opinion Mercedes has really hit the bulls-eye with this C280 4Matic....read morehide

- I have the 4 matic and its pretty good, the added hp really helps, fuel is like 23 or 24, sound sys
- Brake squeeks a lil, feels weak at low speeds ie neighborhoods
The car is awesome on the highway, you have surprisingly good speed and power while the car and 4matic really grip the road...ive been near 100mph a few times w/o even knowing it...the car really is silky on the freeway. THe sound system surprised me, i had thought about putting a sub in back but turning up the bass all the way is very solid...sounds good on the freeway too, good insulation...The only knock i have (as with some mercedes) is when ur going slow on backroads or a neighborhood, the car feels weak after u brake to slow down, i have this feeling even when going 35 sometimes...also the comfort could be better especially in back...dont plan on fitting a family in there too often...Overall i like the look and the comfort features as the driver...the quality is what you expect from mercedes although they didnt exceed their rep....read morehide
