2004 Mercedes-Benz E-Class E500 4MATIC AWD 4dr Wagon (5.0L 8cyl 5A)


Review

This AWD wagon is fantastic. The driver gets a choice of sporty or cushioned ride at the touch of a botton. And the V-8 engine delivers power when needed. The Nav system is also very useful. This is a definite upgrade to the 1999 E320 I used to drive and also loved. My only disappointment is the relatively low number of miles per gallon.


Favorite Features

Nav System; V-8; automatic headlights; automated rear hatch (opening & closing); in-dash CD changer


Suggested Improvements

improve that poor gas consumption, please

2004 Mercedes-Benz E-Class E55 AMG 4dr Sedan (5.4L 8cyl S/C 5A)


Review

AWESOME car. This car pulls hard like my 2001 911 TT. Exotic performance that fits 5 people with luggage. Love this car since it looks like a regular MB to most people.


Favorite Features

HP & TRQ

2004 Mercedes-Benz E-Class E500 Rwd 4dr Sedan (5.0L 8cyl 7A)


Review

I have had BMW, Porsche, Lexus, and other Mercedes in the past. My E500 Sport is almost all those cars combined into one. It is sporty, comfortable, and classy. The power is simply smooth and strong. I love this Mercedes.


Favorite Features

Absolute must: E500 with the sport package. Favorite features: 7-speed auto transmission, white guages, panoramic roof, Xenon lights, indash CD changer.


Suggested Improvements

Optional lists too long and should be included in this $62K+ car.

Review

I am loving it & it drives beautifully. The only thing they could improve is the COMMAND system, I think a touch screen would be a lot easier and safer.

Review

The car is well built with great safty features, great style, and great options (if you're willing to pay for them). The only problem I am having is with the braking system. Every time you let off the brakes a computer humming sound happens for a couple of seconds. Mercedes says that is normal. The problem is sometimes the humming is so bad that it rattles the dash. Will soon take in to service for a second time. I have noticed the computer system sometimes misreads but hopefully very minor and not too often. Other than that it is a great car.


Favorite Features

Navi-system, Prologic sound system, Dynamic seats, Xenon headlights, Super solid ride, Styling


Suggested Improvements

better braking system, a little more power, better cupholders, do not put the change/sunglasses holder on the passenger side, do not make so much of the interior in cloth - even the door thresholds. This will be an extremely hard interior to keep clean in the lighter colors.

2004 Mercedes-Benz E-Class E320 4MATIC AWD 4dr Wagon (3.2L 6cyl 5A)


Review

Excellent ride, great handling, lots of room. We are waiting for our new leased one to arrive. It handles well, is demure, but can really handle speed and curves.


Favorite Features

Pick up is very good, handles beautifully. All wheel drive a plus.


Suggested Improvements

The tires and wheels are a real problem. We have had to replace 4 tires and two wheels. The metal on the wheels is simply too soft.

2004 Mercedes-Benz E-Class E320 Rwd 4dr Sedan (3.2L 6cyl 5A)


Review

Purchased the 2003 E Class 4,000 miles ago. Came from a 2000 BMW 528i and 2002 Audi A4. The E is certainly NOT a BMW, but does not purport to be. It is quiet, very comfortable (a little too slushy, but not objectionable) and has all the necessary toys. So far, other than a very small rattle in the overhead lighting array, it is absolutely silent. Getting 27 MPG on the road to Palm Springs. The Audi was noisy and very rough riding (sport package with regular non-low profile tires). That's why I dumped the Audi after 9 months. It was a pleasure getting back to a truly luxurious and quiet automobile. Build quality is getting better and so are the interior materials.


Favorite Features

Love the quiet ride and great sound system (have the Harmon Kardon Premium System). Also, love the Xenon headlights. Good gas mileage is a plus.


Suggested Improvements

Needs an electric lumbar support. Also, can't believe the MBZ does NOT have RADIO DATA SERVICES. All other luxury cars have it, including BMW and Audi.
