"A Chrysler Seebring badged as a Benz"3.0 starson by karport
Pros: Quiet, well mannered on the road.
Cons: Lacks the sold feel of the prior C-Class. The interior looks cheap.
Summary: The bottom line is the C-Class is a luxury car and the tag of near luxury absurd. It is quiet, comfortable, drives and handles like a luxury car should. It has been my experience that they are well built and reliable and should be compared to other luxury cars. The BMW, Audi, Lexus all have their particular personalities and I do not regret my buying decision. If money was not an consideration I would likely purchase a 5 series BMW although that is much more expensive to maintain.
Again, the notion that the gas mileage of the C-Class is bad is untrue.
