Many Positive Comments
Cons: low roofline makes it a little hard to get inThis is a great car. Have gotten hundreds of positive comments. Everything is high quality. A pleasure to drive.
Baby Mercedes is worthy of the marque!
Pros: The exterior and interior design.
Cons: Navi/audion system needs to be designed by Americans.Rides a littl stiff, Navi/audio is not intuitive in the least but other than that this is one great little car.
MB E320 CDI
Pros: Diesel power, fuel mileage, excellent handling, ride.
Cons: Expense to maintain, otherwise nothing.Purchased this E320 used from a dealer in Virginia. No regrets. Best car we have owned. The only reason I did not give it 5 stars was the fact that it is not owner serviceable and no oil dipstick; otherwise it is perfect. Got used to the navigation and love it.
Pros: Command center
Cons: the rear end boat tail and tail lights styling
Advice: Great value ,finally mercedes doesn't charge a premium for it's stylish two door model .Fast , sporty , looks are great , electronics are easy to use and smart from the GPS to the on command diagnostics .Truly well engineered from bumper to bumper .
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.
Pros: Sound System is upgraded to 510 watts awesome sound in this vehicle
Cons: The engine is so quiet you could be at eighty before you look at the speedometer.
Advice: The vehicle is made for two adults and a small child in the back.Excellent choice very deceptive sports sedan gets up and goes zero to sixty in 4.6 or 4.7 seconds.
