2008 C300 opinions

We're trying to gather info pro and con about a 2008 C300, with 68k. Other than the obvious lack of factory warranty (I think), does anyone have any thoughts for or against this model, and any recommendations (other than "Buy a Hundai")?


Thanks, and happy flaming!

I drove one and was not that impressed. Had a hard time with the sport/comfort mode as there was a delay in the swap that caught up with me at a light and freeked me out. Really thought it would have had more power as well. The ride was not bad but it just felt like something was missing. In it's defense, I had just finished test driving a BMW 330i just prior to.

Do you have a good, fairly local independent mechanic that you will be able to use if you purchase it?
