Best Kept Secret
By BK on


2001 Mercedes-Benz E-Class E320 4MATIC AWD 4dr Wagon (3.2L 6cyl 5A)


This vehicle is unique. Way better than an SUV - getting kids in and out of the rear-facing 3rd seat is a breeze. Minivans and SUVs don't have this kind of handling and fuel economy. Mine now has 87k on it and still looks new. I set the cruise at 80 and get 27 mpg with five people aboard. When it snows, we prefer the Benz to my wife's Jeep because the AWD and ESP makes any trip in snow uneventful. Only minor issues --clicking driver seat that I put up with because it's $600 (I think) for a new seat adjuster -- and burned out time & temp pixels on the Instrument Panel ($Big$). I'd buy another one of these cars in a heartbeat.

Best Features

Family express, plenty of zip, comfort, stereo, truly amazing AWD and ESP, fuel economy/comfort/passenger space tradeoff

Worst Features

I'd prefer an in-dash CD changer; I'd probably find one with heated seats when I buy another one. Cheaper seat adjusters!!
