New car

Hello All,

First post on this forum so please excuse me if I don't use correct terminology.

I'm in the process of purchasing my first Mercedes Benz within the next two months. I have been going over the different models that fit my budget and have come up with three different models within two years of each other.

I have a range of $35,000 but would really like to keep it around $32K if possible.

Here are the three models and years that I have been looking at.

2012 - C250 4-Matic
2011 - C300 - 4 Matic
2011 - C350 - RWD

Does anyone have any personal recommendations on either of the three models?

I live in Virginia and do get some (very little) snow during the winter months so having a vehicle with AWD does carry a little weight.

Thanks for your input.

For that budget why not slip into a CPO E Class? Lots more car for the money and once you drive one you will never look back. I personally would not touch another C Class ever again.

2015 Dodge Caravan (9K) NY
2012 Mercedes E350 4Matic Sport (40K) NY
2006 Mercedes CL600 (48K) NY
2005 Mercedes CLK55 AMG Coupe (28K) FL
2005 Mercedes C240 4Matic (200K) NY
2004 Mercedes CLK320 Cabriolet (45K) FL
2002 Porsche 911 C4 Coupe (69K) NY

Re: New car

I agree with 2000, at least test drive the E. All around, better and you can get a 4matic.

Why do you want a Mercedes?
