2007 Mercedes-Benz E-Class E550 4dr Sedan (5.5L 8cyl 7A)
I bought this car with only 13K miles off a lease return. The 382 HP makes this car a rocket sedan. It rides like a luxury car but peforms like a sports car. The most pleasant surprise has been the gas mileage. On my first major highway trip I got an astounding 32 MPG while averaging 75 MPH! It takes a lot of restraint to hold back the reins on this thoroughbred. On my commute I normally get 26 MPG. The only problem has been the low profile tires. I've ruined two tires and bent two rims on pot holes. This is without a doubt the most fun I've had driving a car in the past 35 years.
The engine's 382 ponies.
Needs an extra power outlet. Stay away from pot holes.
