Took the 2006 C230 in for some service repairs. This is the loaner Mercedes-Benz of Boerne gave us. So far, it’s a powerful and peppy little ride. Seems much bigger than the older C-Class and very comfortable. While our 2006 is a sport package and older, you can still tell this 2012 isn’t very sporty right off the bat. While the power distribution is hard and smooth, the suspension is luxury soft and has a light roll in turns. It’s not sluggish by any means, but nowhere near as stiff and responsive as our 2006 sport suspension. We’ll be sad to give it back, but happy to enjoy our little ride again, in her newly renewed life!
