2006 Mercedes-Benz E-Class E350 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 7A)
I bought this vehicle, having owned a 2003 BMW 530i which I loved. My wife loved the MB even more so I purchased it for her. I've come to like the MB even more than the BMW primarily because it feels more refined. Even the passenger compartment, although not much larger than the BMW, feels significantly larger. I still think the BMW handles better but the MB is no slouch. I do wish MB had the same no cost (for 4 years) maintenance package the BMW came with. In closing, I would buy the vehicle again!
The navigation system. I never thought I would use it but have done so all the time on our current 5000 mile vacation. Inga (that's what I call her) has gotten us out of some tough detour/no sign ridden locations with no problem, It's also easy to use.
Same free maintenance package as BMW. I know my oil change/oil filter bill will be at or exceed $100.00
