Thanks for visiting my blog! Please contact me if you're thinking about purchasing a Mercedes-Benz in the
Yesterday I took a little road trip in a 2012 Merceded-Benz C250 courtesy car. I drove from Atlanta, GA to Columbus, GA and back before noon using about half a tank of fuel. There was heavy traffic in Atlanta that slowed me down a little but the C250 was a great vehicle for this trip - Fun to drive, plenty of space and the fuel economy was impressive! The 2012 C250 is officially rated at 31 mpg on the highway but I was able to do even better!
This beauty will be retired from our courtesy car fleet in about a year but Atlanta Classic Cars has a great selection of Certified Pre-Owned C-Classes available now. Let me know if something catches your eye!
Just added to the Future Vehicles section at MBUSA.com…
All I can say is WOW! I have purchased 3 new Mercedes-Benz automobiles previously, but this fourth one was a very special car buying experience!
I was in the market for a new car so I called my very dear friend Kim Cates. Kim and I became friends when I had my car serviced at Atlanta Classic Car before moving to Jacksonville, Florida. She always provided first class service.
Kim put me in touch with Jesse Cannon-Wallace. After speaking with Jesse by phone, she went right to work finding me the right car and the best financing. Within 30 minutes she called me back and asked me to select the exact vehicle I wanted to purchase.
I flew from Jacksonville to pick up my new car a few days later. I was met at the door by Jesse with a big smile! She offered a test drive and began demonstrating all the great features of my new car. She was gracious enough to add a stop at Fryes to purchase the iPhone 5 adaptor so I could connect my phone to the car. We arrived a little before the store opened and she respected my time by using the opportunity to complete the demonstration.
When we returned to the dealership, Jesse introduced me to Eric Palmsteen, Business Manager, to sign the paperwork. Eric went above and beyond to secure incredible financing for me. Additionally, he was so organized that it took just a few minutes to complete the transaction.
Thanks to Kim, Jesse and Eric, there is absolutely nothing more I could have expected or desired from a car buying experience. I’ve raved about my experience so much that friends in Florida plan to purchase their next vehicle from Atlanta Classic Cars! I strongly encourage anyone in the market for a new vehicle or needs service for a Mercedes-Benz to contact the amazing team at Atlanta Classic Cars! I look forward to buying all my future cars from them.
Oh, did I mention how much I love my new Mercedes? By far it’s the best of the four.
Thank you Bill – It was a pleasure!
Take a look at the gorgeous car! This is a 2013 Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG coupe that we special ordered with the Porcelain/Black Two-Tone Nappa Leather and the Carbon Fiber Trim. This car is currently available for sale!
2013 Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG
The Becker Map Pilot (Option Code 001 + Pre-Wire Code 508) is now available for the 2013 C-Class, GLK-Class and SLK-Class. I have used it a few times and find it to be much more intuitive than the Nav+4 or UMI that we used before. The Pre-Wire option is $200 and the Becker Map Pilot itself is $600 and can simply be plugged into the dock. The biggest flaw with the kit was the lack of a detailed instruction manual. Here it is!
Thanks to Nash for finding it for me!
Not bad when you check out the competition…

Our very first 2013 Cinnabar Red vehcile arrived over the weekend and I thought a little comparison was in order. From left to right you have a 2013 ML350 in Cinnabar Red, a 2013 CLS550 in Storm Red and a 2013 C250 in Mars Red. Cinnabar Red is the least red of the group. I would say it is a reddish-brown with lots of copper metallic. The Storm Red is what I would call a candy apple red. Mars Red is the traditional bright red you would expect for a color called Red. I know pictures are no substitute for seeing them in person…but I perhaps side-by-side it will help you see the scale of red-ness.
This 2013 C250 coupe just arrived at the dealership and it is something special!
2013 C250 coupe
Black with Black Dinamica Interior and Aluminum Trim
Premium 1 Package
Leather Seating Package
Sport Package Plus
Lane Tracking Package
This vehicle has just about all of the options available and is a great example of how custom the C250 can be! This car has the look of a designo package or AMG vehicle for just $2800 in the Sport Package Plus! These wheels are beautiful! We also received a Diamond Silver C250 coupe with these wheels and it was even more obvious that they were two-tone.
I included the two pictures of the COMAND screen because it seems to have changed colors. In the past it has been a retro looking yellow color. Now it appears to be black and white for a sleeker look. (This one is set to Italian. English is also an option, I checked.) Keep an eye out! These 2013 models are coming and there are some exciting new features!
The 2013 Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG Black Series Coupe will be built soon! There are a very limited number of cars available and you’ll need to reserve one soon!
The 2013 Mercedes-Benz C-Class is scheduled to arrive in July. While the 2012 model was the major refresh, there are some differences for 2013. Since most of the options and packages are the same, I am focusing on the differences in this post. As always, info can change before launch and there will be small differences from the European Spec images here.
Sport Package (code 956) Sedan and C350 Coupe – $2300
Sport Package PLUS – C250 Coupe Only – $2800
Driver Assistance Package - Sedan Only – $2950
Dymanic Handling Package – C250/C350 Sedan and Coupe $1530
Becker Map Pilot – For Sedan and Coupe with Audio 20 Head Unit (small radio) – $800
Special thanks to Mike for getting me the Sport Package pictures a few days early!
