Good looking, strong, dependable
I bought my Mercedes because I needed a dependable car for winter driving. My car is an automatic and is a four-wheel drive. I like the strength and size of the engine and the fact that it still gets relatively good mileage. The car's looks and styling suit my profession which is financial advisor.
The regrets of buying a Mercedes Benz in IL
I own a Silver Mercedes Benz C230 4 door sedan. I like the look of my car and the way it drives. It has a luxury feel with great features such as, leather heated seats, a sliding sun roof, and power windows/locks. I like how my car drives smooth and fast when in sport mode. My car drives very good overall in the summer time, but it does not drive very well in the winter, which is biggest reason I dislike my car. Here in IL we get a lot of snow, and my car is lightweight/front wheel drive and does not handle well in the snow. It will slide around like crazy on days where there is snow or ice present. Another con of my Mercedes Benz is that gas is very expensive. My car uses premium gas and has a larger tank, so it a little expensive to fill it up with gas and commute to work. The last con I have about my car is that the repairs, oil changes and parts are very expensive. Comparing my Mercedes that I have now to my Honda Civic that I had before it, I feel like my costs have doubled. Everything is more expensive on this car. Repairs are the costly and parts can be hard to come by. Not all stores will have parts I need for my car, so they end up ordering them which in the end costs me even more. I have to get a the most expensive oil put in at oil changes now.
