2005 Mercedes-Benz E-Class E320 Rwd CDI 4dr Sedan (3.2L 6cyl Turbodiesel 5A)

Review

Test drove the E320 (gasoline) and the E320 CDI. Wow, the E320 really moves and is a pleasure to drive. I was a bit nervous about the MB reputation for quality but so far my fears have been completely unfounded. I've owned a number of Lexus autos (LS, LX, ES, GS) and the MB so far is my favorite auto. I took the car for a trip to San Antonio and averaged about 34mpg (odometer was under 1000 miles). I enjoyed the lower cost of diesel too. Keep in mind that most diesel pumps are designed for "truckers" and sometimes don't have the pay-at-pump option (especially out on the highway).

Best Features

Love the nav (better than my Toyota brand), love the diesel, enjoy having control over many options in the car (e.g., through the Command feature). Great drive/ride.

Worst Features

Should have heated seats standard. Move the cruise control stalk (took me a while to stop selecting it instead of the turn signal).
