My first Diesel
By Mike S on


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


This car has so many things going for it. The diesel engine so far has been amazing. I averaged 37.5 MPG on a recent trip to Florida. I drove 722 miles on one tank. I like that! That and 0-60 in 6.6 sec. in amazing to me. The car is beautiful in every way. It has a great ride. Recently I have been hearing a whistle in the vent fan. Not sure what that is. It sounds a little more noisy than when I purchased it 4 months ago. I would buy this car again. The only complaint is that Mercedes thinks they know better than we do and automatically turn the recirculate button off when it thinks it should. I press that button a hundred times a day. It's my car, let me decide!

Best Features

Mileage, heated/adjustable seats, stereo, ride. Location of the CD Changer.

Worst Features

Fix that recirculate button to stay on for me. They put the place where you put the fuel in on the wrong side of the car! Not happy when it is raining. Key fob isn't easy to use. The keys should either be lit or colored for easy reading. Console should be softer for your elbow.
