You Gotta own a Merc...
Pros: GPS, Bluetooth
Cons: I can't think of anythingThis is the second Mercedes that I have owned and is by far the better of the two...The first being a 2006 S-Class...This car has the correct balance of economy, handling and luxury an extremely comfortable road car that can corner and averages 24 mpg...I have most of the options and the sport package...I would buy another and I don't think that I will ever have anything but a Mercedes...Dick Butz
Cons: Ride is a little harshI own a E550 coupe. Traded in a CLS. I love this car, great performance, great techmology. Long wait to get it but worth it.
My favorite Benz, ever.
Pros: that Mercedes look and feel
Cons: smallish backseatThis 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.
Cons: no cooled seatsIn town we get 19-21 mpg on the road doing 65 mph we get 23-25 mpg
It was a good. Car
Wow what a vehicle
Pros: The mpg
Cons: NothingThis is a beautiful--well thought out and designed vehicle. The throttle is so smooth, you really know you are in a world class car. The ride is also smooth--drivers beware, it feels like you are going 50 when you are at 75. It's quiet with a fantastic sound system. Sirius is great--CDs are the best. All this and get 28 mpg average. No diesel smell, even with a cold start. Outside the car you can hear a muffled diesel purr. We got the Distronic also, works fantastic. Great Car
Best car in this class that I have seen.
Pros: I love the way it looks and handles. I feel safe.
Cons: My husband won't let me drive when he is with me.This car has exceeded my expectations for a small sport car. It has excellent braking and handling. The interior is super comfortable for a small car. It has been extremely comfortable for long trips and I have been able to get 25 to 27 miles per gallon. If you have never driven a Mercedes then try to make it a goal to try. You won't regret it.
