The C-300 was actually not the vehicle we intended to purchase .. We were looking at the C-250 sports body style .. The dealer was showing us the C-250 and in some confusion someone brought the C-300 out and that vehicle changed our minds in a hurry .. The body style is full of beautiful lines and curves anyone would like .. Its sleek design gets us many compliments from other vehicle owners .. We especially like the V-6 as it delivers the power we have been looking for for quiet a while .. We make occasional trips to the great smokey mountains and the C-300 has no problem climbing the steep grades .. Everyone wants to drive it !! There is only 1 problem we have noticed .. The rear seatbelt fits too tight ..
I drove a Audi for years and absolutely loved it, but repairs and maintenance are extremely expensive. After some research I found Mercedes has a great reputation for reliability and is much more affordable repair wise (believe it or not!) I test drove this model as well as a BMW 328i x drive (I also loved) but chose the Mercedes because of the comfort and ease of handling. I live in the city and parallel park constantly. With this car it's a breeze to get into tight spots no problem. The interior also has a bit more swank than the BMW which was another deciding factor. Overall I'm very pleased with my C300.
The car is a luxuriously smooth ride, with great get up and go. It's comfortable, has everything I need in it, minus 2 things. The doors do not auto lock if you forget to do so and drive. That is a safety feature I appreciated in previous cars. Also, if the sun is on your dash as you're driving and you cannot see your signal lights, you cannot tell that you have left them on. The clicking sound is very silent. I constantly continue driving with the signal light on, on a bright sunny day. Otherwise, this car would have been a 5 star for me.
