Review

I bought this used in October 2014. Only thing I have done to it is oil change, Gas to ac unit and it has been running great.

Yes maintenance is higher than other cars, but other cars don't compare.

Do your own research, but I used to have a 1990 420 SEL back in 1998, and it had over 100,000 miles on it. Loved it until I sold it.

These cars are great, luxury wise and ride wise. Creature comforts. I can go on..I have 162,000 miles on my E-Class now.

Review

The E500 sport is a great looking car and when it's working, performs well. However, the frequent costly repairs have been a complete turn off. The car is inferior, price of parts and labor for fixes absolutely ridiculous. Built to last? I say built to break and keep you paying. Mercedes couldn't pay me to buy another one of its cars.

Review

I purchased this car from a dealer that had it sitting for 4 years. It had a few minor problems that I have repaired myself. This car is the family favorite by far, its very fun to drive. We just took a 2000 mile round trip at 75-80 MPH and got 30 MPG !!!. I have never ridden or driven a vehicle that rides or handles like this car. My wife LOVES this car. The problems we've had are minor and easily repaired by myself and the prices for parts are not any different than my Ford diesel truck or my Jeep. Just shop around, google is your friend.

Ride Quality Engineering comfort safety breaks way ahead of the safety / technology curve. My 2003 E320 Avantguarde has features that haven't come on other vehicles till recently. Fuel economy at 80 MPH, (yes the speed limit in my state is 80 MPH in places. Handling Looks


Worst Features

none

Review

Nothing but failures, suspension, AC/Heat, computer, sensors, on and on.
When running the car is a joy to drive. However, the maintenance expense before and after the warranty is the worst I have ever experienced in all my years of owning cars.

The experienced has been nothing but a let down of my expectations of owning a certified pre-owned vehicle with less than 20,000 miles when I purchased it.
Definitely has lowered my opinion of the franchise.


Best Features

Ride and drive was great, when running.


Worst Features

No many to mention. Better parts would be a definite start.
