The comfort and luxury speak for themselves but the maintenance cost is really higher than expected. An oil change is $110; only uses premium fuel; new wipers are $58; replace brake fluid $165; replace air filter $134; routine automatic transmission service $478...the list is endless.
Worst decision ever by buying a Mercedes at Carmax
I would not recommend this car. Two months after purchase, the car left me stranded. Turns out, the EIS sensor in the steering column went out. I had the car towed to a Mercedes Dealer, and had to pay $1300 to replace the sensor.
Now, 14 months after the purchase, another sensor goes out, and it is related to Safety Restraint System. It will cost between $2200 to replace.
Worst decision ever.
We sold a fully loaded 2015 Honda Accord because of our poor experience with the cheap build quality & poor dealer service. I had on my list of cars to try BMW, Lexus, Mercedes, & Audi. I wanted the following: 4 doors, V6, All wheel drive, able to fit in my garage, good acceleration, great handling, solid "feel" & a backup cam. The Lexus was a little too small, the Audi just didn't do it for me & I could only afford the 4 cyl., and last, my wife has a negative view of BMW drivers (so that was a non-starter.). The Mercedes really impressed from the beginning. It felt solid, it didn't sream "look at me", handled fantastic, it was quick, and is very stable driving in snow. I would take a 1 year old C300 over a new Accord any day.
