Overall Owner Satisfaction

Consumer Reports’ Annual Owner Satisfaction Survey can improve the chances of finding a compatible car match. How? Our survey data reveals whether, all things considered, owners would buy the same car again. The answer to that question is what determines our owner-satisfaction rating, which is a powerful piece of intel because it predicts how well a particular model will satisfy other owners.

Anonymous, NJ (2018 Mercedes-Benz C-Class)

Michael B., NL (2018 Mercedes-Benz C-Class)

"The care is fun to drive. I live near curvy roads in the mountains and have pushed the curves so much that I made myself car sick! Another amazing feature is the cruise control, I tell the car to go 65 and it goes that, no matter what, up or down mountain hills, etc."

"Very quite and well made"

Anonymous, CT (2018 Mercedes-Benz C-Class)

"Very comfortable sitting and most handling, but the low profile tires make every bump very noticeable. These tires do not absorb any bump. I am constantly watching for even a manhole cover to avoid. Maybe it bothers me more because my other family car is a Suburban and those minor bumps are nothing."

Michael J., CO (2018 Mercedes-Benz C-Class)

Michael B., NL (2018 Mercedes-Benz C-Class)

"very stiff ride, in rear seat especially rough"

Anonymous, AZ (2018 Mercedes-Benz C-Class)
