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


Review

This car is indeed perfect, or at least nearly so, however I have yet to find a flaw. The car is the best all around car, and has the power to beat just about every car on the road, with the exception to a corvette or somehting of an equivelent class. The E-55 AMG is incredibly fast, all the while having a 1st class interior, althouth I would prefer burl walnut trim over the black birds eye maple trim but other than that it is perfect.


Favorite Features

The powertrain, cup holders are one of a kind, distronic, keyless go, panaroma sunroof, drive dynamic seats, illuminated door sills are very elegant.


Suggested Improvements

A Lighter interior option, burl walnut trim option, and tables in the back of the front seats for the passengers (wood of course), and the for the cruise control stalk to be moved.

2003 Mercedes-Benz E-Class E500 Rwd 4dr Sedan (5.0L 8cyl 5A)


Review

The E500 is a dream to drive. The HarmonKardon stereo was impressive until my stereo system failed. It appears that there is a bug in the "communications gateway" and it will need to be replaced. This is a known issue (see other reviews) and requires a day in service. Besides a cracked glove compartment button, I have no other complaints.


Favorite Features

Panoramic Sunroof (the openess of the convertible without the hassles). The V8 . The sleek sytling.


Suggested Improvements

Limited leg room. No upgrade path to gps system and hard to keep clean.

2003 Mercedes-Benz E-Class E320 Rwd 4dr Sedan (3.2L 6cyl 5A)


Review

Profoundly dissappointed.Worst auotmotive purchase of my life.Wind noise so loud that normal conversation is not possible. No dealership support (in fact they made the car worse) no manufacturer support. 38 days in shop in 120 days of ownership, still not fixed. Unbelievable list of problems. It's not a wonder Lexus is eating MBZ alive!


Favorite Features

Pretty but hard to love due to the lack of quality.


Suggested Improvements

Don't make the corner cutting so obvious to those of us who have spent tens of thousands of dollars for this high priced junk.

Review

It handles like nothing else...they have corrected all the things that I didn't like on earlier models. Trunk space is incredible...like no other...elegant but practical.


Favorite Features

the handling and trunk space, the hideaway compartments under the seats


Suggested Improvements

they don't have any compass feature so you don't know what direction you are headed in
