I bought a C220 a few years ago as a beater and grew to like it. My son rolled it, didnt even break the sunroof. I am impressed with the construction of the car and its safety traits, so I just bought an 03 C230 as a driver.
Reasons for buying a Benz:
1 Value - best bang for the buck $7.5k gets a top quality compact car
2 Green - its a gas sipper, gets 600km + to a tank of fuel
3 Appearance - its a good looking car, people think its new.
4 Safety - these cars are built like tanks
5 Fun to drive - a sports sedan - has alot of zip for a four banger
6 luxury - it has lots of goodies for its cost - the one i picked up has heated seats, leather, wheel pkg, split zone ac + lots more
7 It fits me - Im 6'3" (that does bug me about the new ones - I considered a new C250, but its too small)
Theres more but you get the drift - I am pleased with Benz. If I can afford it, I will always have one from now on.
