Great Luxury Vehicle, Drives Smooth

2011 Mercedes-Benz C-Class C 300 Sport

This vehicle drives very smoothly including during winter conditions. . It is an all-wheel drive vehicle. The car feels light and comfortable to drive. I have driven plenty of other vehicles, but this vehicle drives the smoothest for me. It accelerates and brakes very smoothly and you will not feel a 'jump' unlike other cars I have driven. Some good things about this vehicle is that it locks automatically, it has a sunroof, audio is clear, and has bright interior lights. At night, the headlights is also bright, making it easy to drive in darker roads. One disadvantage of it being an older car is the fact that it has no Bluetooth capability to play songs from your phone. It has the capability of receiving calls, but I have not been able to make it work. Every time I have tried, it cannot connect my phone. Maintenance can be expensive for this vehicle since Mercedes parts are on the high-end side. For example, to replace the front and rear brakes costs me $400 for parts and $200 for labor. I have had to change the brakes three times since 2011. With the car being 8 years old, I have come across only a few issues, but the costs of the parts and labor were expensive which is expected because of the luxury brand. I have had to change the front motor which costs $400 for a generic brand and $800 for Mercedes brand. I opted to use the generic brand and it worked fine.

Mercedes Benz is a very nice, comfortable ride, very reliable, and sport ride.

2011 Mercedes-Benz C-Class C 300 Sport

The only problem I had with the car was the tire and the dealership fix it for me with no charge. It has a good take off speed, very easy to handle, brakes stop very good. The only thing I don't like is it the gas. You have to put premium gas in the car so you can have the best performance. It is a very comfortable ride and it has the dual air, sunroof, good sound system, nice leather seats and enough space for me.

The sunroof is amazing. The color is awesome as well

2011 Mercedes-Benz C-Class C 300 Sport

I have no problems with my car. It rides very smooth. Good on gas. And is as luxury as possible. They vehicle is very reliable. The only thing is that I live in New Jersey and the pothole do a number on my tires. The washer fluid also goes fast but no other issues or problem with the vehicle. It is literally the best car I have ever purchase and I would not want to drive anything else

2011 C300 is a gorgeous, comfortable, reliable vehicle

2011 Mercedes-Benz C-Class C 300 Sport

My 2011 C300 is extremely safe, sturdy, and reliable. It is 8 years old and still looks nearly new. It has withstood several long drives, dramatic weather, and poor driving conditions with no issues. The car is fast and drives smooth with no issues. It is also extremely comfortable and has many adjustable features on the interior that can be adjusted to your personal preference.

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

2011 Mercedes-Benz C-Class C 300 Sport

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.

2011 Mercedes Benz c300 sport.

2011 Mercedes-Benz C-Class C 300 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.

One thing that's interesting about my vehicle is its very reliable.

2011 Mercedes-Benz C-Class C 300 Sport

My vehicle is very minimal but still feels like a luxury car. It also seats 5. The only major problems I've had were the taillights and headlights. But for the most part it's been reliable, at least compared to previous cars I've owned. The trunk space has a nice amount of room too.

- Rick E

I love being a Mercedes Benz owner.

2011 Mercedes-Benz C-Class C 300 Sport

It is a fun car to drive. Comfortable and quiet. Great gas mileage and handles well. Sound system is great. Repairs are expensive but it is a luxury car. However the parts are extremely high quality and last. 40,000+ miles before I had to worry about brakes. Service is excellent.

- Joe O

Love my car! Only minor problems and I've owned it 5 years

2011 Mercedes-Benz C-Class C 300 Sport

The only problem I've had is the steering lock went out not allowing my car to start. Quick fix but very spendy due to the whole dash and steering column having to be taken out. Other than that it's not a very expensive car and it's so beautiful and luxurious.
