2006 Mercedes-Benz E-Class E320 CDI 4dr Sedan (3.2L 6cyl Turbodiesel 5A)


Review

Have owned BWM, Volkswagen, and Volvo vehicles. This MB is by far the best in terms of build qulity, ride, and engineering. This is my first diesel, so I'm hoping for a huge improvement over my current SUV (16 mpg). The design is timeless and the car feels like it will go hundreds of thousands of miles.


Favorite Features

CDI engine (power!), keyless go, bi- xenons (they light up the night!), ambient lighting, summer opening feature (windows/sunroof), electronic trunk closer, sensuous body lines, MPG, steering wheel entry/exit feature, MFD that lights up when using cruise control, jealous stares from strangers :)


Suggested Improvements

Navigation is too complex/too many buttons. Remove key chime w/keyless go. Ability to scan preset radio stations from steering wheel. Can't add MB SAT radio unless you order it from the factory :(

2006 Mercedes-Benz E-Class E350 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 7A)


Review

I looked at MBW, Lexus, and Infinity. However, MB E350 proved to be the better choice. Great car! It turns heads, all over. The dual moon roof is a big plus. The ability to choose between comfort or sport suspension at the click of a button makes it more appealing. The sound system is superb.


Favorite Features

Sound system, dual moon roof, and the looks of it. Gas mileage is great. Avg. 24.5 mpg, not bad.


Suggested Improvements

For the price, 18" wheels should be standard, DVD Navigation system should come with TV capability and game console connections.

2006 Mercedes-Benz E-Class E350 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 7A)


Review

This is the first Mercedes I have purchased. Safety is a must and this car has it all. Comfort is 2nd. Well built, very impressive. Don't ever make it cheap. The buyer will never come back.


Favorite Features

Seats. For anyone that likes to drive in comfort, this is great. Road handling, feel great. Night driving safety. Navigation is a real kick


Suggested Improvements

If you do not have to make it cheaper, do not do anything.

2006 Mercedes-Benz E-Class E55 AMG 4dr Sedan (5.4L 8cyl S/C 5A)


Review

Although a push financially, the E55 is a monster swaddled in Armani. An understated, elegant, every day driver that will dust anything that challenges the "55" nameplate. And they will challenge it. Think of a brand new Aston Martin Vanquish pulling up hard on your right, the light changes and the Vanquish is "Vanquished" three car lengths behind. Hard to put a price tag on that moment. I couldn't. The E55 has cult status. Everyone asks,"Can it really do what they say it can". Yes. Yes it can. And then some. If you're throwing your hat in the super performance car ring, the E55 has to be considered. It can haul kids, signifcant others, friends to dinner, as well as plain out "haul".


Favorite Features

Mind blowing torque with the suspension to handle it.


Suggested Improvements

Although not enough miles to call the car home I would think MB could make the NAV more intuitive, and improve the sound system above that of an entry level vehicle.

2006 Mercedes-Benz E-Class E350 4dr Wagon (3.5L 6cyl 7A)


Review

We decided we needed seating for 6-7, but didn't want an SUV. That left the E series and the Volvo V70. The E350 is beautiful, well-appointed and comfortable/luxurious. The suspension and steering, however, are softer than they should be, especially if you are used to driving a BMW with sports suspension (or even an Audi). The Volvo V70 R was sportier in power and handling, and had WAY better front seats (the most comfortable seats I have ever sat in, in fact), but was too stark/dark in the cockpit. Probably, upgrading to the E55 Wagon solves the problem, but for $35k more, that's insane. Come on Mercedes, make it handle more like a German driving machine!


Favorite Features

Rear facing third row seat and automatic power liftgate.


Suggested Improvements

Tighter steering, better road feel and stiffer suspension.
