The Mercedes-Benz 2008 C-Class wins Best New Luxury Car Award in Canada (AJAC)...

See Dec. 4th article @

Note the base price mentioned in the article! No wonder they get keyless go, memory steering wheel, memory seats & mirrors... they be paying for it! (-and then some, considering that the Canadian "dollar" is now worth more than the U.S. "dollar")

One of the reasons we jumped on buying one here, it is really a bargain currently @ U.S. prices... considering the plunging value of the dollar. I suspect a large price adjustment here won't be too far off, ...those waiting until next year to pull the trigger because of being hesitant of buying the 1st year of a redesign, may very well find that turning out to be a rather expensive caution delay! Just compare base prices for cars even like the VW 6 cyl Passat, or Acura TL, etc. the C-Class here now! True "luxury" class cars can't stay this cheap (C-Class) much longer here with the value declined U.S. dollar. Hmm, unless a future MB China factory? LOL

...and Best New Luxury Car Value in the U.S. (IMHO)
