Mercedes Benz c300 review.

I haven't had any issues with the vehicle, tomorrow will mark 10 years I have had it. Just remember when parking it is lower in the front otherwise you'll scrape the front bumper, I did this on day 2. It is great on gas, rides smoothly even after 10 years. It only needs service once a year if you keep up on its service you should not have any problems.

Great Car. Excellent, reliable, strong engine. Fun to drive. Be careful, the AMG Sport package tires will cost you when it's time to replace them.

The car is excellent. No major problems. Runs smooth, extremely safe, and fun. My 1 and only complaint is that the 2008 did not come with memory seats. It's amazing that a Mercedes would not come with something so basic as memory seats. But outside of that complete oversight, the car really has been one of the best I have owned (Acura, Audi, BMW).

- Yos O

Body style: this vehicle is sleek with very nice champagne color.

This vehicle is very reliable, cozy and gets excellent gas mileage in the city and on the road. Very rarely have I had any mechanical problems with my vehicle. I would own another vehicle like this one if I ever have the opportunity to purchase another mercedes-benz. I use to this car for long distance travel without any problems.
