2004 Mercedes-Benz E-Class E500 Rwd 4dr Sedan (5.0L 8cyl 7A)
After 3 years of owning a C320 I
decided to upgrade to a E500. My C320
visited the workshop more than any of
my cars but I thought the new models
might be better. Well within 24-hours
of delivery the car was on a tow
truck. The alternater had died within
the 1st 100 miles of the car's life.
The fact that the factory and dealer
tests did not find the bad alternater
scared the hell out of me. What can I
expect from this car?
Active seats, drive and looks.
RELIABILITY! A great looking and a
great driving car does me no good in
the shop. The navigation needs
improvement - touch screen/voice
