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


Love drive and feel. Get 600 miles +
per tank which really saves time at the
pump (and cash). Car simply looks
classy, even when dirty. Issues
w/known quality problems with power
window mechanism. Both rear windows
became disconnected, the right side
twice. Dealer says Mercedes knows, but
they have not found fix. Car stalls
when gas is pressed to far which is an
issue for pulling into traffic. Fog
lights have an inherent fault as does
the A/C sensor on the outside. Bumber
cover for winter heater plug and tow
ring falls off and is expensive to
replace. However, no other car beats
its styling, so faults can be

Best Features

Rear seating is surprisingly comfortable for large adults w/plenty of leg room. Like the pop out cup holder. Deisel w/power is super.

Worst Features

Way too many quality problems. In addition to above, problems with seat controls and SRS are annoying. Took Dealer twice to get it right, but now the plastic cover between the seat & console keeps breaking (twice and is now rebroken). The dealer's techs perform like rookies, I leave w/problems.
