Mercedes-Benz C-250 comfort review.

2012 Mercedes-Benz C-Class C 250

The only problem I have with this car is the fact that it's 2 door. I have back problems, so the low configuration of the seats makes it slightly difficult to get in and out. I, also have 3 animals. If I have to take them somewhere, like the Vet, there's a lot of twisting and turning involved. Other than that, it's a terrific ride with just enough tech to make it interesting.

It's a great car to drive and go the distance with .

2012 Mercedes-Benz C-Class C 250

There's barely any problems with the car it runs smooth and it's quiet when driving. The car is just great the brakes are perfect the efficiency of the car performance is great. The car is reliable it always be there wherever you parked it and on good condition. It may look small but inside the car it's roomy.

It is a smooth riding car.

2012 Mercedes-Benz C-Class C 250

No key fob, or backup camera, the covering on the buttons to roll up windows and to control volume it peels a lot and the whole piece has to be replaced. It rides well, and it gets decent gas mileage, it is comfortable for long rides but it has a small armrest that the driver and passenger have to share.

The best car I have owned!

2012 Mercedes-Benz C-Class C 250

The performance of the vehicle has been great! I have had little to no problems with the vehicle. The features are great including the navigation, back camera for parking made easy, and the leather interior are all some of my favorites! I would highly recommend the vehicle and I would repurchase!

- Alexis V

Great for the price, love the smooth ride and beautiful interior

2012 Mercedes-Benz C-Class C 250

Beautiful interior, smooth ride, very reliable to drive and doesn't waste much gas. I see myself driving this car for a couple more years until I decide to get another Mercedes Benz in the future. I just wish it had a navigation system or a more modern display
