Review of the 2001 Mercedes-Benz E-Class

  • The E-Class offers state-of-the-art safety and performance technology wrapped in a somber but classy body.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    Distinctive good looks, lots of standard and optional safety equipment, available all-wheel drive, refined powertrains, rock-solid engineering.

  • Cons

    Stately rather than sporty, gimmicky COMAND system option, no manual transmissions available.

  • What's New for 2001

    E320 sedans can now be ordered with the sport package, which includes AMG aerodynamic enhancements, specific foglights and 17-inch wheels and tires. E-Class sunroofs now feature one-touch opening.

Electrical nightmare

by on
Vehicle: 2001 Mercedes-Benz E-Class E320 Rwd 4dr Wagon (3.2L 6cyl 5A)

The car has been fine except for the electrical system, which has had problems off and on for my entire ownership of it. The latest issue is the electrical failing after a car wash (no lights, turn indicator, etc.). Scary. And the dealership can never figure out what is wrong. (Also the navigation system is quite poor and antiquated.) I would honestly never ever buy another Mercedes Benz.




Outstanding fun family car
