A Moderately Good Vehicle
By Andy on


2006 Mercedes-Benz E-Class E320 CDI 4dr Sedan (3.2L 6cyl Turbodiesel 5A)


Bought used with 28k miles on it. Was all excited about getting this car, but excitement has worn off. Radio sounds good, but controls are poor. Knows nothing of folders on MP3 CDs. Too many button presses to get from Radio to CD to other. Defrost is annoying: full fan speed, highest temp, turns A/C on. Have to use MB phone, no BlueTooth. Engine is very good, powerful, economical, driving range is excellent (near 700 miles). Yet to see 40mpg like people claim, and I drive conservatively. Steering is soft/spongy. No Oil Dipstick?! Leather is good. Overall a good car, but I expected more from a company that charged $50k+ for this car when new.

Best Features

Engine & driving range. Heated seats. Radio sound quality. Build quality seems good. Good visibility. Seats are very comfy. 13k between oil changes.

Worst Features

I've seen more complicated radios with simpler ways of using them than what this car has. Control over defroster. Dip Stick!
