2010 2SS Camaro, 2012 2lt Camaro, or 2013 Mercedes c250

I'm deciding between these 3 cars. I love the newer interior of the 2012 v6 Camaro, and there's only 40,000 miles on it. It also has better mpg. (Around $18,000)

The 2010 2SS Camaro has a much uglier interior in my opinion, and it's not as comfortable, but it's a v8 and is much more powerful, but has less mpg. It also has 80,000 miles on it, which is quite a lot. ( I also don't really want to buy premium fuel) ($19,000)

I absolutely hate the view out of the windshield in both of those cars, as I can hardly see out of them, that's the only problem I have with them, but it's a pretty big one.

My third option is a fully stocked 2013 C250 Mercedes benz c class. It's a few grand more expensive than the Camaros, but it has MUCH better viewing, as I can see out of it, and MUCH better miles per galon, along with the other benefits of it being fully stocked. The problem I have with it however, is that It only has 201 horsepower, and I don't like the look of it nearly as much. ($23,000) ( fully stocked ) (60,000 miles)

What do you guys suggest I do? I'm going to decide tomorrow, and I need help ASAP.

PS: my choice is confined only to these 3 cars

I'd go with the 2012 V6 considering the low mileage. MPG will be same or better than the Benz. Nobody here will tell you to buy the Benz.

Ugh, I love my V8 but I think in your case, I'd have to go with the V6. Not familiar with Mercedes and I don't wanna be.

Huh?40k miles is low on a 2012 but 8k is high on a 2010? Also, asking a Camaro forum which car to get is going to get you a biased answer. Sounds like you already made up your mind on what car to get you just want to be talked into it.

Let's not attack the guy ladies and gents. As for miles, I assume your comma is misplaced, you meant 80k on the SS. I've owed a benz, lexus and bmw. These choices are not in the same universe. The SS is brute, kick your ass around type of a car. The RS, because it's newer and lower mileage and a V6, will feel more refined (I had a 12 RS), but if you get into the Camaro lifestyle and get punks challenging you at the lights, you may kick youself for not buying the 8.
As for the benz, it may impress Muffie and Buffy at your country club (doubt it, it's a C class), but God help you if its not under warranty. Luckily, My benz and BMW were CPO. My Lexus had 160k miles on it and it was bullit proof.
If you're truly asking for opinions, based on your post, the 6 is your answer

Get the SS!!!! Have you ever seen a repair bill for a Mercedes??? It took me maybe a day to get used to the visibility in the Camaro. Now, I couldn't be happier. Well, faster, but, you get the point

Looking for fun? The most fun of all 3 is the SS. Looking for reliability, same. Looking for a car you'll love to drive every single day of your life? Get the SS. Grin Factor? 10 - The SS.

From my perspective, the choice is simple.

Hope this is a real post .. there is little doubt on a Camaro forum to ask such questions.. Seriously though I would keep looking for a lower milage SS even if it were a 1SS for that price.. they are out there. You will want the V8 with M6 for fun factor.. do it right the first time if you can.

Do you want speed and fun or luxury? That simple I think
