After first year - BEWARE
By Jeff C. on


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 - BEWARE.

Best Features

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.

Worst Features

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"
