Description: Used 2015 Mercedes-Benz C300 for sale - $19,998, 71,866 miles with 4WD/AWD, Turbo Charged Engine, Leatherette Seats, Front Seat Heaters, Panoramic Sunroof, Auxiliary Audio Input
Transmission: Automatic Color:Blue Interior Color: Tan Average Vehicle Review: (4.45 reviews) Living in the city with a tight garage, we couldn't go full SUV, so this model as well as many other compact SUVs fit the mold. We ultimately went with the Mercedes because we liked the body styling, and the interior was luxurious but simplified in a good way. You're not spending a lot of time scanning the dash for unnecessary buttons while driving. We've done some off road, but mainly highway miles which are extremely comfortable. This SUV definitely does drink the gas, which is fine for a city commute, but if we had to extend that commute it would be an expensive proposition. That and any repairs which are notoriously expensive are something to be cognizant of...

You could not call this car practical by any means. But fun--yes! And I believe is safer than one would think.It's sufficiently wide enough to make handling a dream. Love this car!

Transmission: Automatic Color:Blue Interior Color: Black Average Vehicle Review: (4.75 reviews) I traded in a newer pickup for this used car looking for better gas mileage but wanted AWD for safety in Colorado winters. I got it, sometimes 30 MPG. This car is what I would consider way above what is necessary, but WOW, what a car. Power, Style, Performance, Luxury. It Turns heads. I have now driven it in 3 or 4 decent snow storms and it sticks to the roads, even better than an Audi Q5.

Transmission: Automatic Color:Blue Interior Color: Tan Average Vehicle Review: (4.75 reviews) Had wheel alignment problems that could only be corrected at a certified Benz dealer. Also developed an annoying rattle coming from Dashboard that quickly developed after 30 day period. Unable to figure it out. Probably why the car was available in the first place.

Transmission: Automatic Color:Gray Interior Color: Black Average Vehicle Review: (0 reviews) Owned several E class Benz's before but never an AMG. This thing is a BEAST. From the engine's roar to the acceleration, its 500+ horses remind you why AMG is in a class all its own. The seats heat, cool, and massage as well as automatically flex to tighten around you during cornering. Panoramic glass roof, with dual auto sun shades. Sound system is crisp and clean. Steering is tight and precise. Traded a troublesome, high maintenance Maserati Quattroporte for this beauty and couldn't be happier. Now I pull next to Maz's at stoplights knowing there's not a thing they can do to keep up!! Love it!!

Transmission: Automatic Color:Silver Interior Color: Black Average Vehicle Review: (4 reviews) When I purchased this executive owned car, it had only 4,500 miles on it. It was priced right at $18k less than the Accura TL I traded for the Mercedes, when the Accura was new. In the 4 months I have owned the car we have traveled almost 7,000 trouble free miles in it. Our Sales Consultant, Henry Beeler III, was very helpful in making our selection of this car. Ours was an excellent purchase, one with which we are very satisfied!

Transmission: Automatic Color:Silver Interior Color: Black Average Vehicle Review: (4.625 reviews) This model 350 is loaded with features, the ride is smooth but not soft. This is the 350 sport which has eye appeal. It has great power when you need it and it's really kicked up in sport mode. It took some getting used to the 7 speed transmission. I'm getting 29 mpg highway, and 25 city. Over all a good ride.

Transmission: Automatic Color:Black Interior Color: Black Average Vehicle Review: (0 reviews) I purchased my very first mercedes-benz, in 2005; it was a 2000 E320 and I was "hooked". I had never experienced such luxury and comfort in a car before. Every complimentary comment I had ever heard about a mercedes-benz was confirmed; it is indeed a magnificent feat of automotive engineering. I went on to purchase a 2002 S430 in 2008 and this year, I passed on my 2000 E320 to my daughter and purchased the beautiful E350 I drive today. The Mercedes-Benz brand represents not only represents luxury; it also represent reliance and dependability.

Transmission: Automatic Color:Red Interior Color: Black Average Vehicle Review: (0 reviews) I did my research on luxury sedans before deciding on the Mercedes-Benz E350 over other cars in the category like the Audi A6, Cadillac CTS, and BMW 335i. After driving these modesl, my decision to purchase the E350 was simply that it brings the entire package I was looking for (performance, interior amenities, safety, and reliability) in a design that is strikingly refined yet not over the top. The ride is tremendous and the interior is extremely comfortable for my size (6'2" 220lbs).

I managed to find a GLA 250 with the features I desired, it's been a lot of fun to drive.

Engine is very powerful, yet natural and moderate in size! You get all feelings of driving a Roadster without hard sport suspension (like BMW has). I am enjoying it and recommend it to everyone!

It is spacious & holds an abundance of items from shopping with family & friends, to the market, and to the dump, which was one BIG reason for getting the SUV-I needed to make runs to the dump, then to the furniture store to pick up items!

I love the "finger touch" feature of changing gears up on the steering column; I especially enjoy the "joystick" of the entertainment center and all four tire measurements make my life easier! I also love how the screen on roof lets in natural light without having to open the roof if I don't want to.

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 ..
