#88 of 1300 New 2005 C230 Kompressor Owner
Oct 12, 2004 (5:55 pm)
I just purchased my first Mercedes a couple weeks ago (end of Sept). The dealership experience (at MB of Knoxville, TN) was one of the best I have ever experienced. They really took care of me there. MSRP on my car was $33,570.00 (sunroof pkg. and CD changer with black paint and ash interior). I got a couple thousand off and some help on a 2002 Mercury Mountaineer I was driving. The people at the dealership really sold the deal for me, though. Real straight-forward, no B.S., no pressure, showed genuine desire to make me a MB owner for life. Great experience and I didn't leave there thinking I got screwed on some part of the deal.
If anyone is in the southeast area, the sales manager told me that my local dealer is in the Jacksonville, FL region. Nearly 50% of the Mercedes sold in this region are sold in Florida. Since the back-to-back-to-back hurricanes, Florida M-B sales are WAY off (practically non-existent at end of Sept). All other dealers in this region were being begged to step up and sell more cars than ever. It gave my dealer more room than normal to negotiate and it may help one of you (who live in the same area) to know about that.
Oh yeah..., and the CAR is spectacular!!!

I got a quote in Dallas area on a new '04 C240 wagon with only 6-cd and sunroof options, it's about $500 over invoice - about $32888 before TTL etc.
Is this a good deal?

Well, it's a couple thousand less than you would have to pay for a 2005 model, but I believe the dealer got a $3,000 incentive from MB on this car so, in that light, that $500 over invoice is $3500 over the dealer's true invoice and remember invoice is 3 percent or so over the dealer's true cost.

Congratulations to your new C230K sport sedan.
I am looking at the 04 325i or the 05 C230K
did u get the 05 model or the 04 from Penske? Is that a demo? $5000 off MSRP seems unbelievable. I've purchased by previous 3 vehicles from Penske (Not Mercedes tho) do you think they could offer the same deal to me. Pls email me hpoohhuiyahoo.com, i might want u to hook me up.

Thanks for the reply and details.
I decide to take the offer tomorrow with out of the door price $35,000
It seems that the current market incentive of $2,500 (on '04 C240 model btwn 10/4 - 11/1) was applied already.

Hi everyone....just bought a 2004 C230 coupe RWD today. I went in to see the 2005 model but the price was too high and the dealer said he had a 2004 model that had 0 miles on the odometer. The price I paid was $24882/- Albaster white+Oyster leather+Moonroof package+6 CD changer+heated seats plus $250 destination charges and taxes. I feel very happy as I think thought this was a great price. The dealer is in Greenwich Connecticut and the service was excellent.
Also does anyone have experience driving in the C class Rear Wheel Drive in light/moderate snow. I hear a lot about FWD being better in slippery conditions vs. RWD, but am not sure with Traction control. Would you advise snow tires or other precautions ? Thanks

Wow! That may be a record low price for a new C-class. You should be very happy!
As for your questions, I think you need to ask them in the main C-class forum. Or better, use the search function in that forum as these questions have been asked and answered before.

Yes, let's reserve this discussion for pricing/buying info exchange only. If you use the search tools at the left, you'll easily find some C-class discussions, where other members will give you feedback about the vehicle's performance.
