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


Recently purchased the E500 at several thousand under dealer invoice. This car is fantastic. It has great power, comfort, and with the adjustable suspension, a great ride for any occasion. The dynamic seats are a feature I'll never be without again. The mileage is good considering the power and my heavy foot. Better than 27 mpg highway and 22 overall per the onboard computer. Navigation makes driving in new places a breeze. Takes the guess work out of knowing where you are. The transmission is smooth, but the brakes are a bit touchy. Takes a while to get used to them. My other car is a C320 and it now feels slugish by comparison.

Best Features

Dynamic Seats are great, a must have. H/C stereo upgrade is powerful. Nav is nice, easy to learn and use (not while driving!). Cup holders are a big improvement over past models. Power, power, quiet power....a real stealth muscle car with elegant design. Way too easy to cruise at 80+.

Worst Features

Overall, I have had no problems or complaints. The ventilation could be quieter, since the car is so very quiet, you can hear it on medium and above. More choice of interior color would be nice. This one is charcoal, would like a dark, non black interior. The light colors show scuff marks easily.
