2001 Mercedes-Benz E-Class E55 AMG Rwd 4dr Sedan (5.4L 8cyl 5A)


Review

I've owned nine BMW, 3 Audi's and just about everything else a driving enthusiast would want in the price range of less than $60k. This car is by far the best I have ever had. Let me explain why. I'll start with the M5. Power, grace and superior handling. The E55 tops the M5 in every category except handling. The trade-off is comfort. The E55 changes gears quicker than the manual M5 so it provides the best of both worlds. I could go on, but in short, this car is great! I change cars every six months due to lack of satisfaction, but this one is a keeper. It changes gears like a Porsche, It's comfortable like a Benz should be.


Best Features

Power


Worst Features

Body roll/lean on curves could be improved. Tighter steering and better control on corners. In other words, handle more like a bimmer and keep the comfort. I can dream, you asked.

2001 Mercedes-Benz E-Class E430 Rwd 4dr Sedan (4.3L 8cyl 5A)


Review

I was looking for a timeless vehicle and found a '01 Bril Sil eClassic Sport Edition with all options in superb condition. The drive train is solid and the interior cabin is virtually sound proof. The materials used throughout are of premium quality, unlike Ford. Acceleration is swift and sporty. It's a true gentleman's car and a dream to drive. I'm very pleased.


Best Features

Sport package, Bose audio, in short, everything!


Worst Features

It's a German car. None!

2001 Mercedes-Benz E-Class E320 Rwd 4dr Wagon (3.2L 6cyl 5A)


Review

The car has been fine except for the electrical system, which has had problems off and on for my entire ownership of it. The latest issue is the electrical failing after a car wash (no lights, turn indicator, etc.). Scary. And the dealership can never figure out what is wrong. (Also the navigation system is quite poor and antiquated.) I would honestly never ever buy another Mercedes Benz.


Best Features

Love the paint color and exterior design.


Worst Features

Fix the electrical - from the audio to heated seats not working to things going off after a car wash, this car is an electrical mess.

2001 Mercedes-Benz E-Class E320 4MATIC AWD 4dr Sedan (3.2L 6cyl 5A)


Review

Looking for a AWD, E320-4matic is the only AWD in a sedan that glides through snow like hot knife in butter. It's quiet, responsive, and luxurious. I wish I had heated seats, but for the money, I can add seat heaters for a couple of hundred dollars. The Nav is a bit awkward, but does work as expected.


Best Features

Steering wheel, Bose sound system, size, ride, and turning radius.


Worst Features

Improved gas mileage and improved owner's manual. A little less plastic everything, a bit more like the solid finish of the 70's and 80's vintage. A few less buttons - more like the BMW's joy stick selector, making it easier for the driver to keep focused on the road.

2001 Mercedes-Benz E-Class E320 Rwd 4dr Sedan (3.2L 6cyl 5A)


Review

Outstanding quality. A true road car. Exceptionally "sure footed" in all conditions. After five years and 41,000 miles this vehicle still looks and runs like new, a tribute to the manufacturing process.


Best Features

Appearance, comfort, and driveability.


Worst Features

Garage door opener poorly situated on rear view mirror. Would be better placed on console somewhere.
