2003 Mercedes-Benz E-Class E500 Rwd 4dr Sedan (5.0L 8cyl 5A)
Wait for Mercedes to work out the
bugs. As of March 2003, Mercedes was
unable to install the navigation
system, voice activated telephone, or
massage seating they had advertised.
(Mercedes is buying back some of these
cars, but only if customers pre-paid
for the features.) I had problems with
my radio and dash lighting; the shop
said this was "common."
Panoramic sunroof and "keyless go"
Work out the bugs and deliver the
advertised product, or let buyers know
in advance that the car can't be
delivered as ordered.
The first time you dip your toe into
the accelerator on this E55, you know
you made the right choice. The engine
howls and, if there is sufficient
traction available, the car rockets
forward. Leather quality is supreme.
This is my third E55 and exceeds my
expectations. I also drive an SL55 and
the E55 feels tighter and a better
Are you kidding? Acceleration.
How about a get out of jail free card
to show the police?

2003 Mercedes-Benz E-Class E320 Rwd 4dr Sedan (3.2L 6cyl 5A)
Love the look and drive of my E320
sports package. First MB however very
disappointed with the quality of car.
Had to bring car in shop after 1st week
because radio/cd went dead. Took 3 hrs
to fix. Waited whole time! Glove
compartment rattles, had problems with
A/C turning on about 5+ times, seatbelt
in driver's side lockes up sometimes
when push seat memory button to re-
adjust seat. Alignment already bad with
only 4300 miles. Not looking forward to
bringing it in the shop to get all this
fixed. Bought MB verses BMW b/c heard
BMW had problems. What a
disappointment. Had Honda Accord before
this car and had noooo problems!
