Pros: Deep power, continuously, along the engines perfomance band.
Cons: All aspects of this automobile exceed my expectations.
Advice: The C 350 is superior to the Audi A4 and BMW 300 series.I picked up my U.S. Spec., 2007, C 350 from the factory in Stuttgart. This experience alone defines the very special nature of the M-B marque. The interior is Ash, M-B Tex. The craftsmanship is superb, from the stitching to material quality, exceptional. The controls, as well as the analog and digital gauges manage and present information in a readily usable format, they are functional and easy to manage while driving. The Iridium Silver Metallic paint, 17' wheels, lowered suspension and AMG appearance components define the aggressive nature of this remarkable automobile. The C 350's performance does not disappoint. It will get to and cruise at 125 mph in short order, with much more to give when called upon. Actual gas mileage, primarily autobahn driving at 100+ mph, has been 28.5 mpg.
Cons: to many problems and i bought it brand new
Advice: buy extended warrantiesProblems with: * Cup holders * Power windows * gas gage * sunroof shade * chaeck engine light and more

Advice: Buyer Beware of this small unstable vehicleBuyer Beware of The performance The saftety features are not what they say they are in the front end
Pros: Muscular fast looking machine
Advice: Check out the stereo. Harmon/Kardon available.. sounds a little betterJust got my hot new red SLK280.. for $4,000 less than the SLK350 there is virtually no difference. Same car smaller engine with only 20 less HP. Handles great, fast, sharp looking. Stereo system is a little weak, my SLK230 has a much more ambient sounding system. This is gonna be a hot item for Mercedes.. smart marketing :)
Pros: It looks sporty.
Cons: The quality of the car is cheap.
Advice: Don't do it. Anything but Mercedes.I have had my car serviced about 10 times in 20 months. Everything that can possibly go wrong with it has. It has left me stranded, it had to be towed to dealer. They try to blame everything on the computer. Yeah right! The quality of the car is poor. Don't buy, unless you like going to the service dept. The C230 looks the same as the C320, why spend 20K more.
