Nice Car But Not the Mercedes of Years Gone By. by Bill on 02/05/2007. Trim: 2005 Mercedes-Benz C-Class C240 Luxury Sedan, Owned 1 year.
Pros: This car has great lines and is very good looking car. The performance is excellent and the fuel mileage is surprisingly good given the size and power of the car
Cons: This is my second Mercedes and the level of quality has dropped significantly from my 1995 C220. I have had the car into the shop 10 times in the past 8000 miles for issues related to quality including peeling finish on the grill and internal fixtures, failure of gas door lock, failure of driver door mechanism (fell apart!) and a front end that can't seem to hold an alignment for more than 1000 miles. Luckily I don't depend on it for my daily driver or it would be gone already. The car looks good but it seems that Chrysler quality? is sneaking into the Mercedes product line
Overall review: I like the performance and looks of the car but am very disappointed in the quality of components. It appears that the Chrysler effect is spreading into the Mercedes product line and corners are beginning to be cut. Hopefully Mercedes will realize this and go back to their "legendary quality." Sadly, this will be my last Mercedes as there are now so many better made luxury cars on the market for the same or less money.

Great car at a nice price! by Matt on 04/18/2005. Trim: 2005 Mercedes-Benz C-Class C230 K Sport Sedan, Owned less than 1 year.
Pros: Great looking car! Good gas economy! Nice $35,000 car that looks like it's at least a $75,000 car.
Cons: Mine is black so it's very hard to keep clean. But looks amazing when it's clean and even dirty!
Overall review: Good car!

Great Car by An MSN Autos Consumer on 05/13/2013. Trim: 2005 Mercedes-Benz C-Class C230 K Sport Sedan, Owned 7 years.
Pros: Mercedes offers many great services for you vehicle free. Mine came with lifetime 24 7 roadside assistance as long as I owned the car. Another benefit at the dealer is the replacement of lights around the exterior of the car free by Mercedes Benz dealers. This car dirves a smooth comfortable ride. There is power when power is needed.
Cons: This vehicle has inherent problems like most vehicles. About 50,000 to 90,000 miles a problem with a conductor in the trans mission is known to go bad. It is a $1,200 fix. No recall has been issued for this yet.
Overall review: Fun fast comfortable and safe car.

I DON'T RECCOMMEND by hilton on 06/23/2012. Trim: 2005 Mercedes-Benz C-Class C230 K Sport Sedan, Owned 7 years.
Pros: not really any
Cons: Had to replace airconditioner twice. $5000+once $2000 the second time. Service cost is averaging over $2000 per year. Don't know where you get your prices for parts/labor. Labor at least $125/hour.
Overall review: Good size. Fair mileage. VERY EXPENSIVE TO OWN.
