The Good, The Bad, & The Ugly

ReviewThis is a great car to cruise the highway and indeed, a pleasure in L.A. traffic. It's very comfortable, turns heads, and will hold it's own in an accident. The V6 & 4-speed are srong and reliable, with no major issues at 160,000 miles. However, the electrical problems are a nightmare. A dashboard light comes on every 3-4,000 miles. Notorious problems include faulty EGR valves, sensors, rattles, and a stereo amplifier that will eventually die. The only ugly thing about this car was the cost to maintain it. 10 months = $3,000, without a major repair.
Best FeaturesStyle, performance, comfort, & curb appeal. What a great car! I plan to buy another E-class (Starmark Certified).
Worst FeaturesChronic electrical problems, a horrible Bose stereo, and the high cost of repairs. Although I have to admit, the Benz dealer gave me all- star treatment for very reasonable rates.
