I have driven 3 Mercedes, ML320, ML65, E320 4matic. The E500 is by far the best Mercedes I have ever owned. I love the luxury which the ML lacked. The reduction in wood on the doors is, in my opinion, a loss of style. The performance is okay. I will buy a Mercedes forever.
The 6 disc CD changer. The original back seat pull-down console. Heated seats. Four-zone climate control.
The seatbelt sensors do not work properly, fix them! There is not enough storage. More wood would be nice. Cheaper design packages would be great.
