Looks good but stays in the shop

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

Review

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?

Best Features

Active seats, drive and looks.

Worst Features

RELIABILITY! A great looking and a great driving car does me no good in the shop. The navigation needs improvement - touch screen/voice recog.
