I have owned this car 1 Year, and 30,000 miles. My wife is the primary driver for her 50 mile round trip commute. It is by far the most solid feeling vehicle I have ever driven. The 4-matic, and ESP traction control give me great confidance in all weather conditions. I live in Kentuckly and it is very hilly and snow is slow to cleared on our roads. It has great cargo space and is hugely versitile. I can haul my two dogs in the back, or fold up the rear seat and roll down the cargo net for 5 Adults and 2 8th graders to ride Comfortably. I have better safety and versatility than an SUV and have taken it off road, absolutely with no wheel spin. I will drive this car for many years to come

Family of 6 swapped the Expedition for
the wagon. We had nothing to tow and
make up for the cargo space with a Thule
cartop carrier (when all 6 of us are in
the car). We avg 23 mpg hwy and 21 city
(10+ better than the EXP.) AWD (4matic)
is a must for us in Alaska and performed
great last winter in the snow and ice.
We used Nokian snow/alpine rated
studless tires. The kids love
it(11,9,5,6mo)it is wide enough that
there is none of the "He's touching
me!". The third row seat is big enough
for the 11 and 9 yr old to sit
comfortably. We'll drive it 'til it

One of the best cars I've ever owned.
Solidly built and HUGE cargo
space...bigger than most SUVs without
the risk of rollover.
I would suggest getting an extended
warranty as repairs can be pricey. To
replace the AWD mechanism cost 4k but
the warranty covered.
I liked the car so much I bought two.
More airbags find room in the E-Class, which now features a full curtain side airbag protection system. The E300 Turbodiesel and E320 wagon are enhanced with leather seat inserts, and all E-Class cars get fiber-optic technology in their sound system/optional telephone unit.
