#382 of 391 2006 Mercedes-Benz - C350 4matic Pricing
Sep 07, 2006 (6:38 pm)
While shopping for a C230, I found a dealership in Maryland willing to see me a C350 AWD (2006-Iridium SIlver) with
-6 CD Changer
for a final price of 34,980 + Tax& Tags. I find the offer too good to be true but it indeed seems to be true given the $5K incentive being offered by the manufacturer to the dealers.In this case, looks like the dealer is willing to pass it on to the customer.I am trying to decide on this one in the next day or two and would like to hear your opinion on the pricing and also if I should watch out for potential pitfalls in this process other than the trade-in pricing for my old car and also the financing deals (I have them both covered). Thanks in advance!

I also test drove an 06 3 series and thought it to be far inferior to the Mercedes c280, interior was cheap and ugly, handling and ride very stiff. In my opinion choosing the BMW over the Mercedes, Lexus, Acura or Infiniti was "insane"..............."I just had to say it..."

I bought a 2006 C280 10 months ago... so far the car has been a dream to drive. I got the 4Matic, and in the ice and snow of Chicago, I've been frustrated by the other drivers as I can weather the elements much better than they can. Smooth ride, good handling, great car for the price point.
#386 of 391 06 C280 18 miles advise needed for purchase
Nov 01, 2008 (10:32 am)
I have driven other German cars and not MB till now. I have an offer for
2006 C280: $20K, AWD and 18k miles on it.
1. Is it a good deal?
2. How is the reliability? I want to keep it for 2/3 yrs and I drive at least 15k miles per year.
3. Is 4matic similar to Quatro in Audi? I have drive in snow and ice - 60 miles everyday.
4. Is there any road noise and does it ride smooth?
Any advise will be highly appreciated.

The thing I really want to know is the myth that they cost so much to maintain a myth or truth. I was looking at a 2006 C280, certified pre-owned of course, and seems like a really nice car, well within my budget, but want to know if I'm going to be out alot of money trying to keep it maintained. I had a friend that told me it was $75 for oil change. So, hopefully some of you loyal, longtime owners could shed some light on what its really like to own a mercedes. Thanks

DEAR bbrand. I am so happy to hear of your positive reactions from your C280. I recently purchased a 2007 C280 4matic, took it on a 7 hour trip, and I must say the car performed well. I am delighted to have this chance to compare, and share our success and or complaints with others...

Sir, the cost of an oil change is cheap at 75.00 because you must use synthetic oil, howerve do as I do...purhase your oil from an aftermarket store, take it to the dealer they will be more than glad to use your own oil. Of course the filter you should purchase from them....

I need some help. I am looking to purchase a c350. The car has 24k miles on it, nav package, black exterior, black interior, and in excellent condition.
Euromotors quoted me 34k. At first I thought that was a good idea but no I am not so sure. Can anyone give me some insight into this? This would be much appreciated.
