2008 Mercedes-Benz C-Class C300 4Matic 3.0 gas V6 from North America
Awesome car, I love it. Better than most cars at this price!
Nothing has gone wrong with the car. I've just done a lot of maintenance.
First, I absolutely love this car. I got this car because I was tired of driving my HD Truck. So, for a 10 year old 3 owner luxury car I had my expectations set. It had its issues when I got it, mostly cosmetic and easily and cheaply fixed. There is a small clunk from the front driver end (likely the sway bar). Now that I have fixed the cosmetic issues and got it looking right, I get many compliments, kind of funny for a 10 year old car. It runs good, thank god one of the previous owners took care of it, not likely the previous. It gets like 16 MPG on town and 27 on the highway. It’s quick not fast, the transmission is slow like the car magazines say, but it’s nothing to complain about at all. I’ve taken it on a 2200 mile trip recently and there were no issues.
Everything works as it should. The stereo with auxiliary cord sounds so quiet it’s annoying. This model didn’t come with the Harmon Kardon sound system. My ML550 has it and it’s amazing. But the radio is quite loud and nothing to balk about. Seat heaters are nice and hot, wipers are deliberate, steering is precise and it goes around corners unlike your ordinary front wheel drive sedan.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

Original poster here. All this time later and nothing going wrong. Just past 129,000 miles and it’s still going. Looking to replace the tires this next year and maybe the brake pads. Still my most favorite car I’ve ever owned.

Original poster here. The car exhibited the failing signs of a faulty front transfer case. Loud whirring noise with speed. It got really loud really fast. I got rid of the car ASAP. I did love the car, but not that much to throw money at it.
