2005 Mercedes-Benz E-Class E320 Rwd 4dr Sedan (3.2L 6cyl 5A)
This is a warning to anyone looking for
a 2004 or 2005 E320. It is well known
in the auto world about the problems
with this model and Mercedes in general
right now. It is basically an
electronic nightmare. Since January of
2004, I have had the following
replaced - rear door lock, instrument
cluster (in speedometer), brain for the
Dynamic Seats, 2- rain sensors, Command
Center/GPS, 6 CD-player, brake issues.
All of this in 11 months! It is a
beautiful car and rides wonderfully and
has some neat extras but you really
need to think hard before buying this
car. This is my first Mercedes and
after paying $57,000 I am at a loss for
words. Please take my words to heart -
The look if great. The car rides
wonderfully and I feel very safe. I
like the Navi, In-dash 6 CD-player,
Dynamic Seats, Xenon headlights.
Fix the electronics or change your name
to Yugo. Do away with the cloth
thresholds because they are extremely
hard to keep clean. Build a car that
Mercedes used to quote - "Engineered
Like No Other Car In The World"
