I've had the car for two weeks and love it. No issues at all. Very solid and the Nav/Command center is better than anything I've seen in other cars. This car is a winner.

Just picked up my 2008 C350. Its beautiful. Artic White with Gray MB tex. The Premium II pkg and Pano room. They said I couldn't get NAV yet?? Anyways, I love it and it was a hard sell because I have only driven Lexus and was questioning their reliability. I was right to question it. Two things, while minor but annoying have gone wrong. The glove box broke and just falls to floor (seriously I've never seen this before) and the Sirius radio only works some days and after calling Sirius and trying to reprogram the system they said the Satellite antenna built at the facory would need replacing. I really do love this car, much better styling and ride than Lexus in every way. It is very quiet as well, but these two small problems are annoying.

I was really looking forward for the new "C" class 300 .. it's a great car, looks great and drives nice.

My only issue with the car, it won't hold 2 sets of golf clubs unless you pull the rear seat down -- we play 150+ times a year .. so we had to pass.

Where can the bra be purchased? Does Mercedes-Benz carry them? Thanks

We love our C300 but have a whining noise in the front end which gets louder as speed increases.

There are terrible problems with the fuel system on the new c 300 w4. They have design flaws with the fuel pump and level indicators or they are being made of poor quality.
