2004 Mercedes-Benz E-Class E500 Rwd 4dr Sedan (5.0L 8cyl 7A)


I attended an investment seminar held on the dealership's showroom floor with no intention of changing cars. It was love at first sight. Upon returning 2 days later, it was being delivered as I drove up. Had one trucked in for me. I have gotten many compliments on its appearance, and the ownership experience thus far has been positive. It has power far in excess of ordinary driving demands, but that reserve is there in case of an emergency. The service department has been very helpful when called upon. Had to replace a strut early on, and the Pirelli's (all 4) feathered around the tread edges creating road noise. Rotated right-left hoping that reversing the rotation will smooth out the feathering

Best Features

Keyless Go. Ventilated seats. 4 zone climate control. Solidity, and safety features resulting in good crash test results. TeleAid. Programmability of the car's many features to suit driver preference. Long oil change interval.

Worst Features

C and S model's headlight styling is better looking. Add a compass. Use a soil resistant material in the door sill area. Move the cruise controls to the wheel. Provide enough trunk width so a set of golf clubs can lie crosswise. Move the HomeLink buttons to the visor. Use different composition brake pads.
