2010 Mercedes-Benz C-Class C300 Sport 3.0 gas from North America

Summary:

Great luxury and performance in one car

Faults:

Power windows.

General Comments:

I traded in a Nissan Sentra that I purchased for the fuel economy, but I soon understood that to gain that fuel economy, I have to give up too much in terms of pure driving pleasure.

I decided to buy a C300 4matic. I made a great choice. The Benz combines luxury with performance. Every detail of this car screams Mercedes engineering along with safety. How many cars have pelvis and knee air bags? It is a dream to drive.

I have only two complaints: the car runs on only premium fuel, and the wind noise is a touch louder than a luxury car should be.

The other great thing is that you can find these cars selling for about one quarter of their $39.000 original selling price.

2010 Mercedes-Benz C-Class C250 1.8 from Australia and New Zealand

Summary:

Simply brilliant

Faults:

Nothing.

General Comments:

A superb everyday driver package. Good fuel economy, excellent overtaking ability; it's hard to believe it's only got four cylinders.

Handling is exceptional and the car is simply superb in heavy snow. The adaptive headlights are a great initiative that actually makes night driving a pleasure.

The sound system is superb, as is the cabin silence; no rattles or squeaks, a well built cabin made to last.

Servicing costs have been exceptionally good; cheapest car I've ever done 50,000km in. It has been considerably cheaper to run and own than a Holden Calais I once had.

A compact executive sedan that does everything you ask of it with no fuss whatsoever; the silent achiever I call it. Best car I have ever owned.

2010 Mercedes-Benz C-Class C300 from North America

Summary:

Even 1 for cent, don't take the GPS

General Comments:

The car everything is fine, but NEVER buy the GPS option, it is worse than the $100 ones in the market. It can't tell you the whole route, so you won't find it is wrong until you drive one hour or half trip. It is unbelievable that you spend $3000 or more, and you get a low end product.

I also asked them to take it away from my car, but they only said that is built in, they can't do anything.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know

Your comments regarding the GPS are simply not fact. It's a little complicated to use with the joystick, but the GPS itself is one of the best made. It will even tell you with a blue arrow what lane you should be in before an exit or turn. My only gripe is that it's too good. What I mean is that the voice command to exit or turn is given four times, which I find a bit much.
