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

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.

Review

Bought my 2003 E320 with 35,000 in August 2007.
Also bought an extended warranty through Mercury Insurance out of Oklahoma City for up to 5 additional years or 100,000 miles for $3,000.
The warranty paid off.
Parkplace Motorcars in Dallas maitained it and I never had to spend any money on it for 5 years other than normal wear and tear.
Its been a great car and now has 101,000 miles.
Ready to put new Michelin tires now.
I intend to keep it unless someone who appreciate a well maintained/documents car and offers me what I can't refuse.
My wife drives it like her own baby.


Best Features

Ride, Comfort, Reliability, Braking, Ease of Working on the Engine, Accelaration, and no road noise with Michelin tires.


Worst Features

The sun visor could have made to function better. Also, could have used less plastic in the interior.

Review

Boy, did I get a lemon!
I have had the car for almost 5 years now, bought it used at 3 years and have spent thousands of dollars to keep it on the road.
In the last 6 months, I have only driven 3,000 kms due to not trusting its reliability and now when it needs it's snowtires off, the repairs of $2,880 shocks me yet again.
Every time I take it for service it costs me thousands.
Will be dumping it for something reliable = perhaps a Toyota - anything has got to be better than this.
Talk about mis-advertising because this baby sure does not prove German engineering.
Must have been a Monday or Friday car or when MB was associated with Chrysler, used Chrysler parts and charged MB prices.


Best Features

Smooth quiet ride.


Worst Features

Use parts made from something other than plastic and warranty your cars to represent the price you charge.
