Wonderful car for a great price

My car is the C-250 with the AMG package. It drives very well. Excellent gas mileage for the size and model. Price was good. Service was very superior. Steve was wonderful and made himself available whenever i needed help

- Joy Fuller, 2013 Mercedes-Benz C250

So Happy With My Benz

For an entry level luxury sedan, this care has most of the bells and whistles, but not a lot of fluff that most don't need (Nav. in the age of the iphone). In addition, the care rides like a magic carpet. Just what you'd expect from a Benz. I am very pleased 3 months into ownership.

- Allen Brown, 2013 Mercedes-Benz C250

Almost perfect, except for turbo lag

If purchased with reasonable expectations of off-the-line acceleration, this car is enjoyable to own and operate. The car is lightweight and handles like a sports car in most driving situations. There's noticeable "turbo lag" from a dead start, which detracts from an otherwise excellent vehicle. The lag is most obvious in stop-and-go city traffic. However, driving this car is a delight when cruising freeways to reach distant destinations, especially when achieving gas mileage that exceeds 30 MPG.
