Pros Great ride, great navigation. Very good, predictable handling. Exterior styling is exceptional when viewed from the front. Command Center is very user friendly, voice activation works well.
Cons Lack of low end torque. You have to keep the revs above 4000 to make this car begin to act like its a sport model. Questionable build quality from the South African plant (poor hood alignment).
Summary We've owned our 2008 C300 for 3 months and put 4000 miles on it. It has good driving characteristics with predictable German handling. Solid feel, except when you close the trunk (sounds a little tinny). Command Center is a must. There is a little wind noise at 70+ mph. Decent MPG's: 23 around town & 29 hwy. The 230 HP V6 is under powered but fuel efficient. This car is a nice, tame ride. If this car had an extra 75 HP it would be a lot more fun. If you want heart-pounding fun, get the C63 AMG.
Pros looks and stuff
Cons mpg and room
Summary why dont car makers use hydrogen injection, and make hydrogen on board from water? ? whats wrong with that. they will sell tons of cars if they do it so why dont they? oil is killing our planet. where are we gonna go when it happens? the oil ceo will just die in 10 years, but our kids will be around for 80 more years and will have to live through the terrible things we are doing to the earth. can you test out products like hy-drive.com and make a small hydrogen injection electrolizer and tell me if it works on any car. tell the world.
Pros Great interior
Cons Poor mileage from CNET review
Summary I get 30mps on the freeway if I am careful and 25.9 if I really do not care. City mileage ranges from 19 to 23. This is on a 2001 C320. Why should a 2007 C300 have poorer gas mileage?
"MPG not good enough"on by KBhky
Pros build, handling
Cons mpg, handling
Summary Overall it sounds like a good car, but for all the engineering it has, getting 20mpg doesn't cut it with $90 a barrel oil. I consistently get mid 20's around town and low 30's highway in my 06 325...
Pros Nice media center, minimal in cabin noise, beautiful shape
Cons Average responsiveness, almost no back leg room, back seats just for 6 month olds
Summary I recently drove one. I had a G35 before, and there is no comparison in terms of engine performance and responsivenees, so comparison is not possible, however I loved the silent interior, and the navigation pannel. Rear wheel drives better than all wheel if you don't experience snow.
