After reading the reviews here, I'm completely dismayed and think some of them are bogus. Surely they aren't talking about the same car...
I leased a new C300 less than a week ago. My previous car was a 2006 C230. So I went from the sport sedan to the luxury one - for those of you who don't know there is a difference! So while I can tell you about handling/ride/power, etc., after less than a week, I can't give an opinion re: reliability - YET. But in my personal opinion, it IS a Mercedes and that itself is quality. This coming from a girl who said she'd never buy a foreign car...
I have the P1 package in my car so I have the heated seats, etc. It feels like MORE car than my old one. It is slightly bigger. There is noticeably more room inside than in the 2006 model, it looks more aggressive, FEELS more aggressive. The increased HP is appreciated! I drive 22 miles each way from home to work & have been averaging 28 mpg. That is highway. It's closer to 20/21 mpg when I'm NOT on the highway or sitting in traffic. I haven't road tripped YET, but I did get my 2006 model up to 34 mpg on the road so I'm looking forward to breaking this one in.
The electric telescoping steering wheel is cool. I love the iPod kit - since I don't have a disc changer in this car, that makes all the difference for me. The display and menu options for that & the Sirius satellite radio are great too. There are some things that I haven't played with yet, but the car is truly a pleasure to drive.
This car has a smooth ride, handles incredibly well - I love to drive on curvy roads fast & it eats the curves up & wants more! I am still getting used to the brakes, they are a bit more touchy than on my old car. But I attribute that to it being new & me adjusting.
They added a compass to the rearview mirror which I'm glad for. The back seat is larger than in my old car. I had my Mom back there checking it out for me. She was comfortable - said the seat was a little hard, but then it was in my old one too. Up front I feel completely cradled by the seat and really hate getting out of the car because I am so comfy. I'm also glad that with this version, all 4 tires are the same size! In my old one the back 2 were larger so no rotating.
I'll modify this in a couple of weeks when I'm more used to the car and can opine re: some of the options I haven't used yet, but I don't think my opinion will change - I LOVE THIS CAR!
