Best C yet, though definitely no BMW

This isn't a BMW, which seems to be the source of many negative reviews. If you want a sport sedan that puts the emphasis on sport, save yourself the trouble and get a BMW 3 series. If, however, you want a luxury car that is sporty, with firm solid handling and all-day (read VERY firm) seats, then the C class Mercedes is about the best car for the money. This is a my 3rd C class, replacing a 2005 C230 K sedan, which repplaced a 2001 C240. The 2005 was the sportiest, the 2001 the most traditional, but the current C300 is undoubtedly the best. The car is fast without being difficult to control. It is extremely smooth-riding, without being floaty. The brakes are supremely powerful, without being grabby. In short, this car was designed for people who spend a lot of time driving. I drive about 55,000 miles per year, and wouldn't think of doing so in anything but a C class Mercedes. Yes, the bigger E and S class are more luxurious, but nothing is as nimble and comfortable while still giving 30 MPG in highway cruise mode (75 MPH). Love the exterior styling, but honestly, I buy these cars for the super-firm seats that are still comfortable at the end of a 10 hour day.

Purchased this vehicle with 26K miles and the dealer went the extra mile to make sure everything was in working order. After the dealer did his 127 point safety check, they replaced the brake pads, put on new tires, offered new mats etc. Very rewarding experience. Had one minor detail, the rear lamp went out and the dealer order a replacement which turns out to be a recall for a new bracket design and they replaced both the right and left bracket immediately. Very satisfied with my purchase thus far.

If you r looking for a softer, more elegant ride and above average handling, the C300 Luxury may be a consideration. The Infiniti G35 and the BMW 3 series were my other considerations. Both wonderful machines!! However, both r "sport" oriented in suspension and handling. Try going through a few pot potholes or railroad tracks with each and you will know what I mean... It all depends what type of ride and handling you r looking for. If dollars are a consideration, the Benz is the least expensive of the above. have fun and good luck !!

My 2nd one

by from vermont on March 28, 2014

These cars do not disappoint, if you want a true luxury car, this is the best one for the money. Over the years I have owned just about all of them. What a value!

The C300 is obviously a Mercedes when you look at it. It is clean looking inside. It drives solidly and feels like a larger car. The cruise control is still in the wrong place - Mercedes keeps putting it where you could mistake it for the turn signal. Also, they should have made the nav system standard not optional. Overall happy with the car.
