Great All Around Car by BlackHorse04 on 08/22/2012. Trim: 2012 Mercedes-Benz C-Class C300 4MATIC Sport Sedan, Owned less than 1 year.
Pros: Interior quality is great (I prefer it over the '12 3-series and A4), ride quality is firm in the Sport sedan but very well controlled, a great car to dive-bomb on-ramps and back roads, wind noise is minimal, love the sport steering wheel, love the lighting package w/active curve illumination, great value compared to BMW price-wise, looks fantastic in my eyes in sport configuration (Luxury version looks a little odd), at full throttle the V6 sings - but around town sounds a little thrummy.
Cons: 18" AMG wheels w/Continental tires have been a pain to balance and do introduce noticeable (but subdued and tolerable) tire noise, Rear view camera is garbage...no guide lines, no radar distance, and the fish eye view is way too distorted (auto tilting side view is critical to parallel park since the camera is useless), Volvo maintenance plan is much better, Mercedes should go ahead and wrap maintenance into car cost...luxury buyers sort of expect it at this point. MBTex may feel nice, but seems to retain heat more than leather.
Overall review: Wonderful car. My cons are really nit-picks, but I tried the Audi A4, BMW 3, Volvo S60, Buick Regal GS, Infiniti G... and I came back to the C-class for comfort, great cornering, rock solid build quality (I love closing the doors), and an all around competence going down the road. It's fun for attacking city corners and ramps, and very comfortable for long highway stretches. The 3-series is great as well, but easily cost $8k more configured the same. If you want a well built fun to drive compact for under 50k, this is a great option.

The Best Mercedes Bang for The Buck by New Mercedes Convert from California on 12/06/2011. Trim: 2012 Mercedes-Benz C-Class C250 Sport Sedan, Owned less than 1 year.
Pros: Very impressed with the handling, braking and acceleration of the C250 sport sedan considering it's a four-cylinder engine. It drives and handles like a six-cylinder, so smooth you can't hear or feel any wind/road noise. First time to drive and own a turbo-charged 4-cylinder car. Like the feel of 229 ft-lbs torque. Barely noticed any turbo lag. The instrumentation looks and feels very elegant.
Cons: Can only upload digital music files from CD to the 10GB Music Register.
Overall review: Excellent car. Best car purchase ever.

Great Car by Kim on 05/23/2012. Trim: 2012 Mercedes-Benz C-Class C250 Sport Sedan, Owned 1 year.
Pros: I also leased a 2004 C240 for four years. Loved that car, but because of the style and the box look, I choose not to buy the car. Just got my C250 in December. Love, love, love this car. Love the style of the car and the performance. Plan to put 200,000 on this car!!
Cons: I really like everything.
Overall review: Love this car!

Traumatic ride on concrete by Rob on 10/28/2012. Trim: 2012 Mercedes-Benz C-Class C350 Sport Sedan, Owned 1 year.
Pros: the radio
Cons: Most everything you can think of: vinly seats, hard to get in and out of front seats, The sports suspension is the worst car I've ever rode in. Full tank it fills like it has solid suspension ,no springs at all, 3/4 tank of fuel or less it bounces along like a slammed down honda civic rat rod. If you have neck or back or bladder problems do Not buy the Sports handling model . We made the $40K mistake in 2009 and its worth 23K with only 18000 miles on it. vin: 048463
Overall review: On concrete roads the car will wear you out
