Fastest car I ever owned

I love the car however maintenance is really expensive! But if you take care of the car it will last you a lifetime. So definitely take it for regular maintenance.


Car drives very well and is comfortable.

Very nice car. Very comfortable and sporty. I like the power. The car has blind spot assist and park assist. The car handles very well. This a great automobile! I recommend this car to anyone


Great for Money

I have owned this car for about 10 months and I have nothing bad to say about it. I kept it stock for a few months but then got into all the aftermarket parts. I have had a Stage 2 tune FBO parts for the last 7 months and there has been nothing mechanically wrong. This car is so fun to drive and would recommend it to someone who is looking to have fun with a car while at the same time would like to enjoy the luxury of a Mercedes-Benz.


Firm suspension but handles well

Build quality is outstanding- with an interior noise level on the convertible less than the coupe. Air suspension of some kind should be standard to make the ride more comfortable when not in sport mode. The quality, exterior trim and operation are excellent. Engine rumble on the stock C43 is among the best of any car, including the 911. Handling with the all wheel drive is rock solid and nimble.


What a fun AMG car!

I’m in love! My specific car is the 2017 Mercedes-Benz AMG C 43 4matic Cabriolet bi-turbo. VERY responsive, plenty of power, tons of intricate features and settings. It takes a bit of time to set up - not negative - most things worth having, to personalize, take some time to think and set up. The seats have lots of configurations, including under the legs, and head rest set up. Mercedes correctly set up the relationship of the IT environment needs, vs the car operation needs. YOU are in full control of the car. The run flat tires are awesome. I actually like them on tight mountain turns better than any other tire I’ve tried. The one button convertible top operation is pristine. Mercedes I remember had this in 1999 and it was good then. Now you can operate it from your key fob as well. I think the value is quite good, and this car model is under the radar so you won’t see too many. Be prepared to get looks, stares and a lot of “hey I like your car” comments from strangers.



This car not only looks good, but feels good to drive. Nothing but top marks for this vehicle. Coming from a mustang GT, I wanted power but also sophistication. This car definitely delivers on both.


"A fast compact sedan 0-60 in 4.0 to 4.1 seconds"

You can maximize horsepower and torque with this vehicle by during three applications: 1st is select sport + mode, 2nd is depress traction button on the center console, which will give you handling mode without traction and xxxxxxx stability control, third and final is paddle shifting after 2nd gear transmission is engaged or you can select the manual transmission also on the center console if you are a pro/experience with that mode of driving. This is my third AMG C43 , I have had two 2017 C43 coupes and now a 2020 C43 sedan that is fully loaded with 19" rims except HUD: HEADS UP DISPLAY. I wanted more hip, head, rear seat room and rear windows that let down. If you like exhaust sounds get the performance exhaust system for the strong pows and gurgle pops. I have also changed out the summer tires that come standard with 19" rims to Kenda UHP VEZDA 400 ALL SEASON PERFORMANCE non run flat tires, so when it snows I have outstanding snow traction with these Kenda tires and they have a 50,000 mile warranty and a AAA TRACTION AND A TEMPERATURE rating.


Great running, great looking car.

Great running, great looking car. This car does everything that is advertised, even more. It is a bi-turbo V6, and not only does it move really well, it gets great gas mileage. And it looks killer


C43 Sedan - Obsidian Black, Designo, Perf Package

Looking for performance luxury? The 2017 C43 delivers and the only AMG that has all wheel drive. This puppy has some serious get up and go and can also handle all weather conditions. Performance exhaust is impressive and turns heads. The only area for improvement can be with the Mercedes Me app (which has nothing to do with the car itself).
