Not too bad
By Had since 14 k miles on


2001 Mercedes-Benz E-Class E55 AMG Rwd 4dr Sedan (5.4L 8cyl 5A)


While under the generous 4 year 50K mile warranty I had lots of problems including driver's side mirror falling off due to cheap metal. The rear door regulator, transmission leak, cup holder, power headrests (twice) motor, lug nuts rusted away, and battery. But since the warranty was over it has only been an H20 sensor and the Teleaid antenna broke off. The styling is timeless and the ride feels like in an electric car. The motor is smooth along with the ride. There are no child locks for the rear doors though. Uses synthetic oil that needs to be changed every 10,000 miles. It gets better the longer I seem to go. Expect about 18 city and 28 highway

Best Features

Ride, fuel mileage, styling, interval between oil changes, weather band on the radio, comfortable for very tall drivers, built in first aid kit, car computer is helpful. Owners manual is a hardback book, very bright lights and these are not xenon.

Worst Features

Better headrests motors. Annoying steering wheel sqeaking since new.
