Good car

by from New York on October 23, 2011

Very good handling, good gas milage, you can hear your watch tick at 90mph. 4-wheel-drive gets you everywhere. There is no better car in this size. I bought a 2006 with 66K miles and have it now 3 mon...
Very good handling, good gas milage, you can hear your watch tick at 90mph. 4-wheel-drive gets you everywhere. There is no better car in this size. I bought a 2006 with 66K miles and have it now 3 month-love, love it.

we wanted a bmw but the dealer had this 280-4matic for a great price of 17k with 55k miles. After test driving in Chicago on winter roads decision was made quickly that this is our car. Have it now for 3 month and we love, love love it. Great performance, extremely good winter car (all-wheel-drive) and boy what a smooth ride. I hope this one lasts us for a long time. Try to get a model with seat heating, this is phenomenal comfortable in cold weather.

just got a used 280 4matic with 50K miles. Never had a better winter car. Here in Buffalo you need a reliable winter car and this is the best I ever had in 24 years of driving. 23 mpg , great 3.0 liter engine, very responsive and sooooo silent and smooth.

my first MB and love it

I bought a 2006 C280-4matic in January from a dealer in NJ after I was driving my friends car while he was on vacation and loved it. Now, after 5 month I have to say that I never invested my money better. Rain, Snow, Gusty Winds- no problem. The all-wheel-drive gives you this unmatched feeling of safety when you run into the large water puddles on the highway. At 24MPG for a 3.0 Liter V6 with 230HP you have nothing to complain. I had it in for an oil change and the guy checked my breaks. In the back, at 78K miles still the first rotors. Yes, they are expensive to change on a MB, but the way they last you make up for it.

bought my 2006 280 4matic in November 2009. Rain and snow never a problem, you feel really save.Traction in snow is unbelievable, this car goes always. I get 21.5 MPG in average with 70% city traffic. Highway on longer trips 28 MPG. Always take the 280 and not the 240. The 240 is to heavy and needs more gas.

Trunk is small but great car

I just bought this 2007 280matic for my wife. 20MPG in Jersey City, 25MPG Highway. Sometimes she wishes to have a bigger trunk, but that is really all that bugs her. The car is very safe, extremly good handling in snow and rain (4WD). She had a 2006 Cadillac SRX V6 which was a disaster in quality and behaviour. So this is the first Mercedes, and certainly not the last one.

This winter made the difference- buy this car!

by from Nanuet on February 11, 2014

I sold my 2009 front-wheel drive Honda Accord in October 2013 and bought my 2006 MB 280 4matic with 76,000 miles. For 12,500 the car was a steal, looks like it is maybe a year old. You can tell the MB...
I sold my 2009 front-wheel drive Honda Accord in October 2013 and bought my 2006 MB 280 4matic with 76,000 miles. For 12,500 the car was a steal, looks like it is maybe a year old. You can tell the MB quality is just so much superb to all Japanese cars. The 6 cylinder engine is very responsive and smooth, with nice acceleration, feels like a Ferrari compared to my Honda. Breaks are no joke, you can tell this thing was made for the Autobahn. But the best thing ever is this incredible relaxing all-wheel drive: No more spinning tires, no more getting stuck on a hill, no more hydroplaning. driving in winter on snow is fun now, and even my wife which is not interested in technology was wondering why the car doesn't break out on snow. I explained it and now she wonders why we waited 20 years to buy an MB with 4matic. Buy one, but make sure it has the 4matic.

The C230 is much more than I expected. I bought a pre-owned C230 Sport and am very pleased with it. From it's sporty exterior styling to the superb comfort, the car does not disappoint. I needed a bigger car but didn't want a bigger price. This was a perfect find.

I change cars very often as I drive over 40k miles per year. This one I've had for almost 2 years and do not want to let it go. This MB is perfect in every aspect. great fuel economy, easy to get around in the city and it looks awesome! with 4matic all-wheel drive for the winter - this thing goes through stuff that some truck don't! if you're thinking about it - just get it!
