Help with choosing between '05 E320 and '09 c230
I am newbie to mercs (in that I have never owned one).
After much research, have narrowed down to two cars:
1. '05 E320 4 matic, has 60,000 kms on it, one year of factory warranty left and 2 years of Star warranty (it's an MB certified pre-owned).
2. New '09 C230 4 matic (with a couple of options)
I know I am not comparing apples with apples here - when I test drove, the E class felt considerably superior, but the C did not dissappoint at all.
While I am inclined towards the E230, I am a bit anxious about maintenance of this car vs. a new (albeit smaller) C230.
In terms of lease costs, the new c230 is expensive by about $90 a months (3 year lease).
I need a 4matic for sure (Canada eh!)
