Considering 08-09 C300

I'm looking at and considering buying an 08-09 Mercedes C300. Anyone here have any bad experiences with this car that seem to be common, or anything I should look out for? Thanks.

they are good cars. glad to hear you will be getting one soon.

personally i find them awesome looking. Very sporty and classy. Not so much conservative like the typical benz.

i guess your getting a automatic transmission? they have a 6speed manual available however they are quite rare.

Congrats and i hope you enjoy it!

nice pick. reliable motor, very comfy and pretty well equipped. i hope you didn't go with the manual though. iirc, it uses the same 6 speed from the last gen which is supposed to be pretty shitty.

No manual, I got the 7G-TRONIC automatic transmission. Picked her up last night and so far i've been absolutely loving it.

Actually I checked out the car at the dealer on the Friday morning then posted about it in the afternoon looking for opinions. I didn't buy it until the Monday after the weekend. So how can you say I asked about the car after buying it?
