2008 Mercedes-Benz C-Class

- Fit, finish, and fine touches of a much more expensive upscale Benz.
- Miss the memory seat option, but with all else it has, I can live without it.
I chose the C 300 Luxury version this time for ride and comfort. I took the P2 and Multimedia packages and do not regret the cost one minute for what they give back to me. I added AMG 5-spoke wheels and high performance tires for a very fine ride and handleing pack. Added chrome door incerts & spoiler to finish it off as an impressive car (and one I'll keep). Many complements.
Beautiful interior and exterior lighting. Cornering fog lamps are a plus that I wanted too. More room in this C Class than in the last 4 I've had for sure. Absolutley everyone has been impressed with this car and borrowed the Mercedes brochure to read.
Fine touches throughout. The only reason for an E Class would be interior room that I can see....read morehide

- Luxury at an affordable price
- Don't like the location of the cruise control
Great riding car. Luxury at an affordable price. Not a big car. Easy to drive. Has adequate power for a small car. Is a luxury sedan...not so much a sports sedan.

- Super smooth ride, great looking car!
- I love this car I can't say a con in particular
Is such a nice car drive, very smooth ride, not as sporty as the BMW or even the previous version, but in my case that's what I was looking for having kids in the back seat.
I love all the gadges and the joystick to check out the options in the radio and CD player.
This is my first mercedes and I don't see me buying any other car later on....read morehide

- Smooth ride, handles well and looks sporty with the panorama rf
- sport model without wood trim, desirable options cost extra
roomy interior for small car, large nav screen folds into dash, great handling/fun to drive, 4matic model option is great! drove it in a heavy snowstorm in a hilly area and it grabbed like a heavy 4wd truck - great control.
Controls for GPS/command system well placed/intuitive - no touch screen, but controlled with right hand at end of armrest, so comfortable to operate.
expected fuel econ. to be better - break in period?
Harmon Kardon sound is great but extra, the standard speakers in demo sounded tinny
You can get the Luxury model with the sport grille as an option for those who like the look of the sport but the wood trim interior of the luxury...read morehide

It handled very well, it was comfortable to ride in the back seat, I already own a slk and went back to M.B. on LaPalma, due to the service I have received over the years. This is where I would buy it front. The car is also, just the right size for four adults. The sound system is great.

- Solid feel, comfortable, controlled and quiet ride, interesting and useful gadgets.
- Could be a bit more fuel efficient
After nearly 25 years I purchased my second Mercedes-Benz and it was delivered to me only last week. It comes with the 4-Matic, P2 and multimedia options. This one is smaller in size from my last car and does not have all the gadgets in it namely memory for seats, etc. But it makes up very well in every other way. It has excellent ride characteristics with superb control. Blissfully quiet interior letting me enjoy my music and conversation with my passengers riding in the front or back seats. It may be a bit early to comment about the lack of fuel efficiency but I think it could be better. I am begining to learn some of the advanced features of the multimedia system and enjoying them throughly. Hope it is as reliable as my old (1981) MB 240D in the long run....read morehide

- WOW...a homerun all of the way! MB has truly outdone themselves
MB has thoroughly thought everything out on the c300 Luxury Sedan. The basic c300 have everything that one could ask for at a price that is less than 33k.

- Longer and wider than previous model. Smooth ride and great handling. Quiet.
- No seat memory. Small glove compartment. No power in outlets unless ingition is on.
Very pleased with new C-300 Luxury Sedan RWD 7-Speed Automatic. (Purchased 11/23/07). Previous car was a BMW 325CiC. C-300 is roomier, both up front and in the rear seats, although that's expected moving from a coupe to a sedan. BMW had more power, but that's do to the new C-300 being longer and wider, and as a result, heavier. But that translates into a nice, smooth ride (at least from my perspective), and the C-300 handles a whole lot better than the BMW (again, from my experience) Obviously the sedan has less road noise than the convertable, but with the sunroof option, I don't miss being able to put the top down. The instrument control panel is very user-friendly on the C-300, with nice "bells and whistles" in the multi-media package. Although the P-1 package is well equipped, the P-2 might be worth the extra money if ammenities are high on your "need to have" list. Cons: the power seat buttons are on the side of the seat (S-Class and E-Class are on the door), and there is no seat memory button, which is a nice option when you have multiple drivers. The glove compartment looks roomy, but when you put items on the lower shelf, you realize that the door won't close, as objects on that shelf will hit the upper shelf. There are three power outlets (ashtray, glovebox, rear seat) but none have power when the ignition is off, so you're unable to charge anything unless the car is running. The cruise control and the wiper/turn signal contols are on the same side (easy to hit the cruise control when you're trying to use the directional signals) However, that being said, this vehicle is a very luxurious ride for the low 30's price range. Elegant looks. Good power. Nice option packages. Smooth and comfortable ride with great handling....read morehide

- For the price of a Toyota AWD van you can have a really great car.
Bought C300 4Matic on11-13-07, from Dealership in Denver. Great looking car, a little cramped in the back seat when using car seats, but nothing to complain about. Really good looks and quiet ride. We got the P1 Package and entertainment set up w/ nav. Very easy to use, the car has card readers, i-pod cable and all have standard bluetooth. My wife loves it and the price was under $39,000....read morehide

- Holds the road, Quiet ride, smooth over rough & bumpy roads
- no memory seat settings
If this is what you get for the low end Mercedes vehicle my dream now is to own the more expensive models. Luxury is a minor statement in this vehicle. It drives with strength and has a "hold" on the road like no other sedan I have driven. The cabin is so quiet that we can't even hear the frequent 50-60 mile an hour wind gusts between Boulder and Denver. It almost feels like you have an electric retarder braking system. THe car "senses" your driving style, braking action and the roadway to make it effortless for you to respond to a stop or accelerate into highway traffic. I simply love this car.......yes it has a plastic composite dash..... but who's looking at the dash when you feel like your in a $100,000 vehicle for less than half that much....read morehide
