HIgh Mileage Review - Buyer Beware
By Paul L. on


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


I'm starting the seventh year of ownership of my E-class. So far I've replaced: Front passenger seat belt buckle Both catalytic converters Front wheel bushings Instrument panel Rear Shocks Steering wheel switches Three audio speakers Both sun visors Car has 210K miles, I feel too much has gone wrong with the car for it being a MB. I also have an undiagnosed mystery noise in the back seat. Front end vibrates at high speed.

Best Features

The car handles well on the freeway and the six cylinder engine provides plenty of torque. Ride is smooth and cabin is relatively quiet. I am never unhappy driving the car, just bailing it out of the dealership. Almost nine model years later the car still turns heads.

Worst Features

Better build quality, i.e., less frequent maintenance. Reduce road noise even more. In dash CD player. Electronics were archaic even for 2001.
