The 2009 C300 Luxury RWD is the perfect blend of comfort, luxury, and quality in a small luxury vehicle. It has all the creature comforts of an E Class and S Class at a much more affordable price and size. It has a very solid feel without being to large to drive.
Pros: quiet and smooth
Cons: outlook and smooth engine....
Advice: should select V6 engine.Powerful engine, shifting is smooth but, not all the time under control, I mean the gear box system control itself...., overall, the car is good to excellent. I drove BMW 525 and VW Golf R32 before..., driving seat of the C300 W204 is the smallest....., don't know why? Yes, 525i is one size bigger, but, R32 is not......
Cons: Constant little defects/problems.
Advice: Wait for 2011Great looks, and handling. Comfort is lacking, seats less than comfortable. After two months I had to have the seat belt assembly completely replaced. A squeak/rattle was coming from the door pillar. More rattles and squeaks from the rear window deck. Whistle/rattle from the sunroof that rarely gets used. All are being corrected but in less than 8 months to have this many issues is a strong indication that this car is going to have constant problems. Got a call today from service that a trunk recall was issued and they will address it since they have the car. Even the loaner I have has rattles and squeaks in the same places mine is having issues.
