2005 Mercedes-Benz E-Class E55 AMG 4dr Wagon (5.4L 8cyl S/C 5A)


When I first heard about the wagon, I ordered it immediately. I had hoped Mercedes would bring a high performance wagon to the U.S. but never had before, only the rest of the world had a performance estate wagon. While it is rather expensive for a wagon, approaching the price of an S55 (which I also have), I think the exclusivity and performance make the price acceptable. I was unable to order a power liftgate or parking sensors (two options the wife wanted) so she is less likely to use the wagon (ok with me) and cannot figure out why since both options are available on the E55 sedan but those options will probably be offered soon (the power liftgate should be standard). It handles like a sedan

Best Features

Enjoy the power luggage area cover which keeps the junk out of sight

Worst Features

Mercedes has not figured out how to deliver its cars with factory optioned phones that work properly. My last 3 Mercedes cars with phones all took 4 to 5 trips to the dealer before the phone worked acceptably, and still not as good as some after-market phones. The integration with the car is too good to pass
