A vibration felt through the center floor of the vehicle can be caused by driveshaft flex discs, which crack and shred, causing excessive driveshaft movement. Not repairing these can cause damage to the driveshaft center support bearing, or, in the worst case scenario, damage to the transmission or differential.

2008 Mercedes-Benz C300 Problems
It is not uncommon to encounter premature failure of the anti-lock brake system (ABS) modulator assembly due to dirty brake fluid. Our technicians recommend flushing the brake fluid every two years in order to help prevent this problem.
Due to the size and material used on the brakes of these vehicles, the brakes may start to squeak around the 50 percent wear point. The brake rotor surfaces become uneven, causing a lip to form at the outer edge of the rotor. Because of this, the rotors are usually replaced when the pads are worn (pad life varies depending on driving style and terrain).

2008 Mercedes-Benz C300 Reviews
Wish I had bought a Ford. This thing is never in working order. Never out of the shop. Now having check engine lights constantly. Dealership charges $121.00 to do what O'Reilly's does for free. Every day I pray a Ford drops in my lap.
Wonderful car not one single problem. All I have done is the regular maintenace.
A great driving car and dependable, initially had trouble with Sirius Sat reception, but it was repaired by installing a new sat module, attenae. I also installed all season tires by Michelin rather than the stock summer continentals
Over 2 years now and over 32000 miles. Not even the smallest problem. This my 4th MB and it is the best. Previous cars, all C models, were not relaible at all and I had my share of problems with them but not this baby. Knocking unpainted wood now.
The Mercedes C300 is a solid, comfortable, and capable car. Hate the tire pressure monitor, but only because it's accurate. I have had problems with the lights that I shouldn't, so that's not great reliability for a new car. The interior trim does look and feel cheap in places, and I'm not convinced it's well made.
