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


Review

This is an amazing car. Consistently returns 30 mpg, while delivering great performance, safety, and comfort. The trunk is huge - our family of four has taken 2 vacations in it with no problems. Traded in a big SUV for it, a little worried about the downsizing. We have had absolutely no problems - this car is a perfect size for a family.


Best Features

Rain sensing wipers. Great radio.


Worst Features

Cup holders are too complicated. Just simple holes will do.

Review

There is nothing like a Mercedes-Benz. Here is the bottom line. Mercedes-Benz, like all cars, must be properly maintained inside and out for it to perform and be relied upon during its long life. These are highly advanced vehicles which deserve much respect, and that means no cutting corners when it comes to maintenance and repairs. Most people complaining about their Benz either obtained it from poor care or have not been providing the proper care . I will admit, it does take a financial commitment to make this happen, but so does the proper care for a Honda Civic if you wish to have it running like new at 120K miles. I am blessed to have my 04 E320 Sport and its simply a great car.


Best Features

Pneumonic suspension, ABS, stereo/navi, high intensity projector lamps, torque and its ability to go exactly wherever you want it, regardless of your speed.


Worst Features

Do not like a plastic grille, some interior components have cheap feel, like steering wheel color rubbs off, and other plastic bits like to detach for no apparent reason.

Review

I have had this car for almost one year and have not had any problems with it. Great car, good power, fun to drive and definitely a head turner.


Best Features

Nav, heated massaging seats, streptronic shift.


Worst Features

Seats can be a little uncomfortable sometimes, that's just my impression

Review

I had been looking at the sport sedans such as Infinity and Acura, but although they were fast, they lacked rear seating capacity for 3 kids. Also the interiors appear to be cheap and not too appealing (especially if you like the luxurious look while still maintaining the sportiness). I fell in love with this car the moment I looked inside. It looks rich, not cheap at all, definitely has the wow factor. This car had so many really cool bells and whistles, I have never had such a comfortable ride, great handling and speed adjusters make for a great ride.I average 28mpg on hwy and around 20 in town. not bad for v6.


Best Features

Panoramic sunroof that can be opened closed with remote key along with all the windows. Braking system. Can stop on a dime at high speed. It is sensitive so takes getting used to.


Worst Features

Blue tooth capability, longer time on warranty. Not too many people hit 100,000 miles in 5 years.
