2003 Mercedes-Benz E-Class Sedan E500 Rwd 4dr Sedan (5.0L 8cyl 5A)


Review

I have enjoyed driving this car except
for the electronics. Initially, I
couldn't even set my clock. The
electronics were changed, but now I get
lots of false malfunction indicators.
My dealer is terrible so next time my
$60,000 goes to BMW or Lexus. For the
money, I should have more horse power.


Best Features

It does provide a solid ride.


Worst Features

Much improved electronics and more horse power. This needs to jump from 302hp to 350 or so. Too much gap between this and the E55.

2003 Mercedes-Benz E-Class Sedan E320 Rwd 4dr Sedan (3.2L 6cyl 5A)


Review

Have had this car for only 3k miles,
but it is truly a joy to drive. I have
encountered none of the
computer/electrical problems-but it's
still early. Interior fit and finish is
remarkable and upgraded wood grained
steering wheel really dresses up the
look. Drove 700 miles straight and
instead of feeling like a whipped
puppy, I played 9 holes of golf when I
arrived!


Best Features

Cabin look, ride ,seats ,H-K stereo,


Worst Features

Even 50 more HP would be better. Wood grained steering wheel should be standard on a car of this price.

Review

simply mercedes, a driving machine. of
all the cars I have owned, 22 in my
life, this automobile is by far the
best and most fun to drive. The
smoothness of the ride is impeccable.
The horsepower, demanding. I have
accidently had the car up to 110mph and
it felt like I was going 55!!

Review

Wait for Mercedes to work out the
bugs. As of March 2003, Mercedes was
unable to install the navigation
system, voice activated telephone, or
massage seating they had advertised.
(Mercedes is buying back some of these
cars, but only if customers pre-paid
for the features.) I had problems with
my radio and dash lighting; the shop
said this was "common."


Best Features

Panoramic sunroof and "keyless go"


Worst Features

Work out the bugs and deliver the advertised product, or let buyers know in advance that the car can't be delivered as ordered.
