Why the 2005 Mercedes-Benz C-Class?

Exterior styling

I personally think the C Class exterior is best in its class. The design is well thought out, unique, and flows together very well.

Powertrain performance

I like the variety of powertrains available. The choices give you the right control over the vehicle and all choices are responsive enough for safety.


The handling really is unique. Only a Mercedes Benz has the unique mix of both luxury and sport handling that makes you feel like you are both hugging the road and gliding at the same time.

Safety & braking

Mercedes has long been an innovater in safety. Being the first company to introduce many safety features into its cars such as the airbag. Having been thru a minor ice caused accident, I can really attest to how safe I felt.

Materials & workmanship

The materials used are luxury with well attention to detail. The interior leather & controls age well and do not feel cheap. The engine is well laid out and does not feel cluttered as some engines do.

Why Not the 2005 Mercedes-Benz C-Class?

Insurance cost

Obviously the price of insurance for a C Class is higher due to the high cost or repairs. So beyond the price, one should expect a life of higher prices due to the high quality materials in a Mercedes Benz.

Price or payments

One would always prefer lower prices, but its still a great buy for the price compartively.
