The c300 is a great introductory car for first time buyers! Drives great!

Performance overall is good. I do love the car but the maintenance can be very expensive. Just spent several hundreds of dollars having the alternator replaced, new drive belts, new tires, and having the headlights replaced. I purchased the car used and it seems like every week a different light is going out such as the license plate lamp, etc.

I love that it is a sports car. It goes very fast.

It is reliable. Looks good and very fast. It's a great vehicle to have. I have had the vehicle going on 3 years. Has not had any major problems. As long as you keep up the proper maintenance. The car drives smoothly and it is a nice car. Overall, the car is a great vehicle. If I decide to buy another one I would get another Mercedes.

2011 Mercedes Benz c300 sport.

Overall I love the 228 hp the v6 puts out. One of the best things about the c300 sport 4matic is how quiet the cabin is. On the highway going over 90 mph it does not seem loud at all. The large windows and sunroof are a major plus. My only complaint is the rear seat does not fold down unless a separate package was purchased.
