This wagon got better as the miles were put on. (41,000) Very smooth and noiseless, has more power than needed, and a dream to drive. Cupholders could have been more convenient. Sound system is superb. My wife is not crazy about rear facing seats in 3rd row. I will drive it until it drops.
One of the best cars I've ever owned.
Solidly built and HUGE cargo
space...bigger than most SUVs without
the risk of rollover.
I would suggest getting an extended
warranty as repairs can be pricey. To
replace the AWD mechanism cost 4k but
the warranty covered.
I liked the car so much I bought two.
I have owned this car 1 Year, and 30,000 miles. My wife is the primary driver for her 50 mile round trip commute. It is by far the most solid feeling vehicle I have ever driven. The 4-matic, and ESP traction control give me great confidance in all weather conditions. I live in Kentuckly and it is very hilly and snow is slow to cleared on our roads. It has great cargo space and is hugely versitile. I can haul my two dogs in the back, or fold up the rear seat and roll down the cargo net for 5 Adults and 2 8th graders to ride Comfortably. I have better safety and versatility than an SUV and have taken it off road, absolutely with no wheel spin. I will drive this car for many years to come
Very comfortable, excellent turning
radius, spacious rear seating.
Sacrifice reliability and quality for
luxury. Loud brake squeak from day one
Mercedes advised would diminish with
use and it has not. By 15000 miles the
window washer pump, a/c fan, CD
changer, vanity mirror/light, cup
holder all had to be replaced. Owned a
Volvo wagon wished we had purchased
another (Volvo T5).
I just bought a 1999 E320 wagon with actual 11921 miles on it! What a dream! Within the first 2 weeks I put about 1000 miles on it because I want to drive it. Smooth handling yet sporty, a wagon that goes from 0-60 in under 9 seconds all with an average 23mpg. Luxurious, comfortable and huge! Lots of cargo room. Wish it would have been a 4-matic, yet if you know how to drive, the anti-slip control should get you safely through the winter. At 90mph it runs as it is on tracks and is incredibly quiet. Third row option allows you to go on short trips with 5 adults and two kids! This car is a dream and is as classy as it is practical. I will definitely own it for quiet a few years to come.
