2005 Mercedes-Benz E-Class E500 Rwd 4dr Sedan (5.0L 8cyl 7A)
After facing the prospect of a second
set of tires on my 2002 CLK430 in less
than 20,000 miles, I took a test drive
in an E500. I couldn't believe how
quiet, powerful and luxurious it was.
Less than two hours later, I was
driving my new E500 home. From the
6CD Bose sound system, to the
adjustable suspension, each drive
reinforces the fact that this is by
far, the best car I've ever owned.
Negatives are few, but I really don't
like the gas/temp gauges. The car is
the best looking in its class, but I
would recommend black, looks great
from any angle!
5.0 liter V-8, adjustable suspension,
4-zone climate control, 6CD Bose sound
system, and great seats.
Needs traditional gas/temp gauges and
brakes are too touchy.
