Pros: Comfortable ride, the Mercedes badge
Cons: Not an exciting ride, comes with nothing, too expensive
Advice: If you want a sports car, keep looking. Don't buy this thing.This is not a sports car. It is a sporty luxury car. I was hoping for an exhilarating drive, but this car is very sedate. I wasn't impressed with the console either-it looked cheap to me compared to other cars that cost a lot less. And this car comes with nothing! No standard leather, CD player, or moonroof. This car is way overpriced for what you're getting, unless you just want to tell people you have a Mercedes.
Pros: The sport tunned suspension
Cons: Lack of a rear window wiper
Advice: get the manual transmissionI can sum it up in the slow purr of the car while idle, the feel on the gear nob as you get going and the inertia holding you as you shift up the gears. Excellent!
Advice: If style and handling are more important than reliability, get oneThe car is beautiful and handles very well. Comfort was below average until Goodyear tires were replaced with Michelin..at our expense. With the new tires road noise dropped dramatically and comfort improved to C+. Unscheduled service in 40,000 miles has been TWICE that needed by our Cadillac with 110,000 miles and SEVEN times our Nissan with 242,000 miles. The Nissan gave up the ghost...after being hit by a Mack truck.
Pros: Dashboard computer
Cons: The doors (swing too wide
Advice: The C2 package is usually sufficientHaving driven with 168 hp for a while, 215 hp is a marked difference especially on highway. It is slightly bigger than a BMW 3 series and smaller than a 5 series and perfect for a small family. The trunk size is impressive for small sedan. The AWD makes for great performance in winter in New York. There is no need for snowtires. The color scheme is great and the leather and stero qualities are fitting for a luxury sedan. C240 is underpowered and E320 is only sligtly bigger but with a substantial price increase. All in all, dollar for dollar, it is a great purchase.
Pros: Awsome look, great drive
Cons: back seat room
Advice: Get the premium package but forget the wheels.First of all its looks great. And its size is decieving. It drives like a sports car and handles beautifuly. the super charged engine is more than powerful enough considering its size and gas milage is well over 30 on the freeway. Back seat room is acceptable. Its not great but fine for any drive that isn't cross country. I'm 6'2' and fit just fine.
Cons: Automatic climate control fan is set too high
Advice: Get the leather, panorama sunroof and forget the wheel package, the car handles well without it and buying expensive soft tires will cost a lot.Check out European delivery; MB gives you a factory tour and two nights in a luxury hotel of your choice in many European locales for no more than the price you pay locally. Driving the car through Italy was great! Shipped over in about 3 weeks after drop-off, no hassles.
Pros: climate controlled storage.
Cons: Build Quality
Advice: Don't let your heart rule, stick with an Acura TLCar Looks Great, many annoying problems and trips to dealer. Groaning suspension, squeaky spongy seats. Pricey for a small car.
