    2008 Mercedes-Benz C-Class

    They got it right

    Pros: Driving it

    Cons: lack of memory seats- corrected in 2009 model

    Bought the C300 Luxury edition new loaded with all options except 4matic, leather and panorama sunroof. Fantastic telematics and air conditioning. Car is a pleasure to drive and is getting 20-25 mph in town and 28-30 highway on E10 gasoline.

    2008 Mercedes-Benz C-Class

    My favorite Benz, ever.

    Pros: that Mercedes look and feel

    Cons: smallish backseat

    This is my 5th Mercedes since '84 (2E-class, 2 C-class and 1 T-class [wagon], and I keep them forever) and this one is the best all round for style, size, creature comforts, performance. It seems quite a bit bigger than the last C-class, although the back seat can be a bit snug. When I first saw the large Mecedes logo in the grill I was a little turned off, but it really grows on you and now I really love it. The AMG-ish touches are really dramatic and dare I say, cool (I'm dating myself I believe). And I got the 4-matic which is really, really a must north of the M-D line. I can't imagine a better car.
