2000 Mercedes-Benz E-Class E320 4dr Sedan


Car had 22000 miles and manufacturer's
warranty (never wrecked, dealer
serviced, full records). Can't find a
better more solid feel in a midsize but
the reliability is horrible. Everytime
I crank it up I hope the radio works
correctly. MB uses soft plastic, not
hard, designed to break. Visor vanity
covers break off routinely. Don't pull
on seat backs, they will break off in
your hand. Catalytic converter broke.
Key system is horrible, locks are stiff
and keys are skinny. Will buy American
made Lincoln next time.

Best Features

Integrated hands free telephone. Very nice ride, free routine service under warranty.

Worst Features

Get rid of the fiber optics, too delicate for weather extremes, get rid of the infrared key with skinny mechanical keys. Make it more reliable and worthy of the price!
