2005 Mercedes-Benz E-Class E320 Rwd 4dr Sedan (3.2L 6cyl 5A)
We have been completely happy with our purchase. Owned it 3 years at this point, bought it 2 yrs old with 27k miles (cert preowned buy). It now has 72k. Sold my 04 C320Wagon (that we also loved) and bought the E Dont buy a Benz if you dont want to pay the premiums for servicing. This isn't a car for those who like to change their own oil. My Ford bought new and now same miles -yes cheaper to take care of but way way less of a vehicle. Changed brakes and tires at same intervel w Ford. I was warned by non Benz owners (jealous?) about alleged electronics issues but after 3 yrs haven't had any probs.
Automatic mode for most driving, but for those windy roads it lets you get your thrills by manually shifting gears (merely tapping the shift to up or down gears). Pure luxury ride. Comfort, power, mega safety for my wife and kids. Completely recommend.
Previous Benz had a Bose stereo system- prefer that to the Harmon Kardon.
