Great car fun to drive. Lots of electrical problems, can't remember how many times I have had the radio repaired or replaced, still not fixed. Don't waste your money on this one.

2004 Mercedes-Benz E-Class E320 Rwd 4dr Sedan (3.2L 6cyl 5A)


Review

This is an amazing car. Consistently returns 30 mpg, while delivering great performance, safety, and comfort. The trunk is huge - our family of four has taken 2 vacations in it with no problems. Traded in a big SUV for it, a little worried about the downsizing. We have had absolutely no problems - this car is a perfect size for a family.


Best Features

Rain sensing wipers. Great radio.


Worst Features

Cup holders are too complicated. Just simple holes will do.

2004 Mercedes-Benz E-Class E55 AMG 4dr Sedan (5.4L 8cyl S/C 5A)


Review

Nanananana... I've got one & the rest of the world is jealous. This is the real zoom zoom. Fastest car I've ever driven. Passengers noice the speed. Steering is as good as an EVO. Acceleration is somewhat violent and obnoxious as is the speed leveling, but still worth the effort & the money.


Best Features

Torque with speed.


Worst Features

Send over at least a 50 mile strip of autobahn with puchase of any AMG.

Review

This is a great car - when it runs. The engine is very strong but the electrical system is very unreliable. You will get to know the MB service dept. well. Moreover, this is a fancy car and many mechanics are not trained to fix it's problems. Find a good mechanic and get the extended warranty!


Best Features

It's fast!


Worst Features

Needs to be much more reliable. Too many features means too many breakdowns.

Review

There is nothing like a Mercedes-Benz. Here is the bottom line. Mercedes-Benz, like all cars, must be properly maintained inside and out for it to perform and be relied upon during its long life. These are highly advanced vehicles which deserve much respect, and that means no cutting corners when it comes to maintenance and repairs. Most people complaining about their Benz either obtained it from poor care or have not been providing the proper care . I will admit, it does take a financial commitment to make this happen, but so does the proper care for a Honda Civic if you wish to have it running like new at 120K miles. I am blessed to have my 04 E320 Sport and its simply a great car.


Best Features

Pneumonic suspension, ABS, stereo/navi, high intensity projector lamps, torque and its ability to go exactly wherever you want it, regardless of your speed.


Worst Features

Do not like a plastic grille, some interior components have cheap feel, like steering wheel color rubbs off, and other plastic bits like to detach for no apparent reason.
