2003 Mercedes-Benz E-Class E55 AMG Rwd 4dr Sedan (5.5L 8cyl S/C 5A)


Review

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 handler.


Best Features

Are you kidding? Acceleration.


Worst Features

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)


Review

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!


Best Features

Nice ride and look! Real head turner!


Worst Features

Better quality!

Review

Generally pleased but having wheel alignment problems that could be tire problems after two balances and two alignments. Otherwise ride is not as smooth as I would like but can't tell until I get this alignment thing cured. Watch the Continental tires!


Best Features

Love the "sport" package styling and Sport accents inside.


Worst Features

More back seat leg room - my two prior Passats are the best in class here.
