Monster of a car but well balanced
By oldstocks on
Vehicle2007 Mercedes-Benz E-Class E550 4dr Sedan (5.5L 8cyl 7A)
ReviewI bought a used E550 and it is the best car I have ever had - balanced, powerful, smooth, ergonomic, roomy .... love that V8 and cannot ever go back! I have had 3 Mercedes, a Volvo, a BMW (M3), Saab, and several Fords. I have also driven my parents 4 Mercedes. The E550 tops all of them combined. It has 382 horsepower but I get 28 mpg on the highway (25 if I goose it). It looks sedate but keeps up with unwary Porsche and Corvette drivers. Fantastically smooth driver on the interstate with fantastic response for passing. Right now, I am shopping for an convertible (for fun) but cannot find anything as great as my current E550. Maybe an SL550?
Best FeaturesPowerful engine, decent V8 gas mileage, luxury comfort, smooth ride, perfect controls, roomy
Worst FeaturesMakes people jealous when they see it, heavy for high speed turns but that is not it's purpose
