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: Surprising performance for a station wagon
Cons: We didnt get the Nav System
Advice: It becomes very functional & user friendly every day !Couldnt believe the performance of our Grocery Getter ! We had 2 (2005 King Ranch Diesel,2005 LR3 HSE) gas hogs in the garage so we wanted to get something with better MPG. Averaging 23 mpg. Typical Mercedes quality.
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.
Pros: Memory seats and and auto placement of seat and sterring while getting in or out
Cons: Squeaks rom the seat
Advice: Just feel and buyApart from squeaks from teh leather seat, it drives and lokks great
Cons: Slow off the line
Advice: Test drive it, and take it out on the freewayI love this car! It is a little slow off the line, but everything else about it is fantastic! The styling is goregous, the seats are comfortable, and the stereo is great--I can't think of anything bad about it!
Pros: The styling and performance.
Cons: No dip stick to check engine oil, I'm just 'old school'. The computer takes care of everything.
Advice: Buy this car, for the same price as a common asian luxury car you can have a Mecerdes-Benz.Purchased for my wife, her first M/B. She loves it, with the tight suspension it really feels like a sport car. Supercharged 4 cyl engine has plenty of low end torque and the 5 speed auto with manual select option is great. Car has options like leather, sun roof, 6 disc cd changer power driver/pass seats, mirrors settings and other items programed in the driver's 'key'. There were no defects upon delivery and at 7500 miles it is still free of any problems.
Pros: the entire car! It's hard to pick favorite - it's 'so me'
Cons: heated seats are optional
Advice: Test drive a variety of vehicles to determine the feel you like. I like the German cars best.Just love it! Different look for MB - not the boxy type you're used to seeing. Acceleration is responsive, nimble handling, brakes well. Quality for a nice intro level to MB! Good safety features included as standard.
