2005 Mercedes-Benz E-Class E320 Rwd CDI 4dr Sedan (3.2L 6cyl Turbodiesel 5A)


Review

When the car is performing well, not in the shop, it is wonderful. Have had numerous major problems with the car, such as O rings having to be replaced twice, the transmission going out, numerous problems with the keyless go, and on and on. Have asked MB to extend warranty to 75K with being turned down. Will not buy another MB car, ever


Best Features

Very quick. Solid gas mileage, though it doesn't get up to what they publish. Love satellite radio


Worst Features

Better quality and willing to stand behind the car

Review

This auto is great. I drive on the road in sales, it is comfortable, and fun to drive. The pickup is outstanding, not what many think of when looking a a diesel, this one will push you back into the seat. Diesel fuel is not hard to find, one tip, carry a pair of plastic gloves to wear when refueling, keeps the diesel smell off of you and the auto.


Best Features

Diesel engine


Worst Features

Mercedes seatbelts do not retract when you exit the auto like I feel they should, tend to get caught in the door if you are not carefull.

2005 Mercedes-Benz E-Class E500 Rwd 4dr Sedan (5.0L 8cyl 7A)


Review

I love this car. After owning it for 2.5 years, it's been in the shop once, for an oil change. Absolutely nothing has gone wrong. A very fast car with just the right balance between race car performance/handling and luxury tourist. Gas mileage on the highway going 75 mph with A/C on around 27 mpg and city around 16 mpg which is amazing considering the large fast engine.


Best Features

Mileage, speed, looks and quality of both the exterior and interior.


Worst Features

Placement of the cruise control stalk (right next to the turn signal stalk), high cost of the E500 engine, funky climate controls that have a hard time maintaining the correct interior temp when set on auto. Impossible to brake smoothly, electronic brakes grab and pulse when stopping.

2005 Mercedes-Benz E-Class E500 4MATIC AWD 4dr Sedan (5.0L 8cyl 5A)


Review

A great automobile with plenty of power, excellent comfort, and good mileage on trips (22+ mpg). The drive dynamic seats, keyless go, parktronic and navigation systems are super. No failures in the 19 months/19000 miles.

Review

Having owned 7 MBZ's in total, we have finally come to where I can say this is the real deal. I like them so much, that I have two of these in my garage. A 2002 and 2005 for me. Yes, we are blessed! High maintenance cost, brakes/tires, but a once in a lifetime thrill. Everbody checks it out.


Best Features

The engine!


Worst Features

Fix the electronic seat thingy
