Why would you settle for anything less
Have had my C63 for just under a year now and no issues to report thus far. The ride is what you’d expect from a sport tuned car, stiff for sure but not unforgivable. The interior looks fantastic from the drivers seat and everything feels and looks of quality built, I will say however that if you use the sunglasses holder it causes a most maddening rattling in the car. Other then that I wish the cup holders offered a bit more grip as I hate things moving around while driving. The rear seating area only has the 2 vents with no other accessory ports or climate control. The exterior styling is excellent and I love the aggressive stance and contours that make it stand out easily from your standard C class. The black AMG wheels look great especially like mine with the silver paint and carbon fiber trims however, be ready to spend at least once a week doing a deep clean of those wheels because the brake dust is relentless. Also I wish it was just a bit lower in the rear. Finally the performance: this car will absolutely put a smile on your face everytime, I am always surprised as to the noises I get from that AMG exhaust. The emotion start feature is great too for when you want people to know, this ain’t your aunts C250. I absolutely love the angry burbles, cracks, and rumbles of that exhaust. The engine is poised and mild mannered in comfort settings and becomes an angry high reving monster in the sport modes, I like that it has sport and sport+ also for that extra and in between rush you’re looking for. I personally like the nice heavy feel to the steering wheel and it’s extremely tempting to not want to whip the xxx around at every turn. It does take some getting used to at the corners to avoid looking crazy with unexpected wheel spin. Ive yet to do a proper launch on it since I’ve still been getting used to it, being my first RWD car. Overall this is an incredible machine that will always remind you why you bought it. I feel almost smug driving this around as it gets plenty of compliments and of course hate from your local mustang/mopar boys.
Unsure why the owner wrote a negative review.
Not sure why the previous owner wrote the negative review. I have had Mercedes Benz for over 10 years and have never had any issues. I owned previous AMG models and no issues. Perhaps he had a lemon? Nevertheless, the C63S is one of the more reliable german cars I have owned. Dont take my word for it. Do your own research and look at all the online reviews from car and driver Doug Demuro to name a few.
The problems are as varied as possible. In 4 months I have replaced rear brake pads and rotors. I have a roof that sometimes won’t retract. I’ve had 2 cel…one mysteriously just disappeared. The other is a thermostat and assembly that has been in the shop for 6 days. I’ve had my screen go blank. Trunk locking button fail to work. Check coolant pop up…no problem. This car has 16k on it. Not what I experienced in my previous 3 MB’s.
