2007 Mercedes-Benz C-Class Reviews from North America
2007 Mercedes-Benz C-Class C230 Sport 2.5L V6
I love this car
The car is still beautiful, my friends would have thought it was brand new if Mercedes hadn't done a redesign.
This was my first car, and like my parents I was pretty excited to be a Mercedes owner. I do realize the badge is a huge selling factor of the car.
But, the styling looks really nice for an old generation, and it looks just as sporty and modern if not more so than my friend's new cars.
The performance is solid, a 2.5L V6 isn't a speed demon, but the car won't "drag" along.
That being said, the mileage is ridiculously poor, I get around 19-21mpg.
Inside, the seats are very comfortable, I got a car with genuine leather seats, not MB-TEX.
The interior does feel a bit dated, as this model doesn't have an LCD screen like newer cars, but it looks nice.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

2007 Mercedes-Benz C-Class C280 4 Matic Elegance
High Priced Tire Eater
Flat tire 9000 KM.
Light bulb burnout in drivers' sunshade mirror at 18,000 KM.
Change 3 remaining tires at 20,000 KM because of bubbles forming on sidewall.
Repaired one mag at 20,000 KM.
New bubbles forming on sidewall at 20,000 KM.
Gas mileage that manufacturer states is misleadingly low.
It's a tire eater. I have 225/45R17 XL Michelin Alpin PA2 Winter tires. Because of the low profile on the tires, every time you hit a pothole you will get bubbles forming on the sidewall. If you hit a really big one, you will also scratch/damage the wheel. Mercedes does not offer 17 inch black winter rims so I'm slowly destroying my wheels. They only offer steel rims up to 16 inches. I have no idea why Mercedes would not make any Winter Steel Rims for 17 inch and bigger. I know they're ugly but it's better than destroying your tires and wheels.
Montreal's roads are terrible year round and they have plenty of potholes. If you live in a climate that does not have potholes, I would highly recommend this vehicle. The driving is smooth and the handling is exceptional.
It's convenient that oil changes are every 20,000 KM but the cost is terrible. 350 US$ to get an oil and filter change and someone to measure the windshield washer fluid level is not what I was expecting from Mercedes.

You can actually use 16" steel wheels for winter motoring - all you have to do is get a set of tyres with the same rolling diameter as the 17" items you have on the alloys on your car. Any good tyre professional would be able to assist.

"It's convenient that oil changes are every 20,000 KM but the cost is terrible. 350 US$ to get an oil and filter change and someone to measure the windshield washer fluid level is not what I was expecting from Mercedes."
But you wouldn't complain paying $175 US to do it every 10,000km...
Windhield washer level can be done yourself... not rocket surgery.

I also have a 2007 C280 and have had to replace 2-tyres at under 15,000km and they are not cheap. Mercedes should cover the cost of problems like this and find a solution.
Would I buy this vehicle again - NO!!
