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


This was my first Benz when I bought back in 06. It did pretty well for the first year, but then the car started to have numerous problems. The wind sheild wiper stopped working, the CD player broke (and still is broken today), and some various other things seemed to not work the way they should after a while. We ended up spending about $6000 overall in the past 4 years. However, I'm not really the kind of person that treats their car like a baby or even owns a garage, I also ignore regular servicing a lot. After we got all this fixed though, the car seemed to really work well and has continued to do so so far. I'm not totally sure I'd buy another Merc but I'd definitely buy another German car

Best Features

Excellent fuel economy for a car this size, very good in the snow, has some very solid touches, interior/exterior look really great especially with the xenon headlamps, the car gives you a certain feeling that makes you just want to drive it

Worst Features

Reliability is really not too great, some of the car has quirky design features (such as the cupholder), not everything is where I'd expect it to be
