2003 Mercedes-Benz E-Class E500 Rwd 4dr Sedan (5.0L 8cyl 5A)
This is a wonderful machine in terms of
handling. It is eye pleasing and
driving fatigue on long trips is zero.
But, it is an electrical NIGHTMARE.
Don't waste your money underwriting
mercedez R&D. I know the company knows
of the drastic electrical problems yet
they keep offering the cars for sell
without warning. This is not like the
Mercedez of old. Hey...who owns this
company these days...certainly not a
company that cares about the consumer.
In 16 months my car has been in the
shop more than 10 times for major
electrical problems. I think more
consumers aren't complaining because
they are embarassed to tell that a car
with this reputation is soo poor.
Everything is awesome. But, everything
keeps breaking and malfunctioning.
This car is a rolling computer. Fix the
whole dog-gone system before selling
