2008 Mercedes-Benz E-Class E550 4dr Sedan (5.5L 8cyl 7A)


My first MB and I now understand all the hype surrounding German engineering. The attention to details, the technology, brute performance, and respectable handling and braking for a luxury sports sedan. It will take a top of the line S600 or E65 to pass you and cost a whole lot less. I really enjoy all the conveniences and I am quickly getting a handle on the voice activated Command System. Keyless Go really is a nice feature. The AMG sport package really adds a nice touch. Operating the 7 speed auto via FI style paddle shifters really makes it feel like a performance vehicle. The safety features are not to be ignored. A fun car to drive!

Best Features

Classy MB looks, acceleration, comfort, keyless go, voice control, Pre Safe, seven speed transmission, Harman Kardon sound system, iPod, satellite radio, blue tooth phone, Xenon headlights with corner tracking fog lamps, all leather interior, 4 zone AC, ventilated and heated seats, auto wipers.

Worst Features

For this money, it should have a rear view camera, telescoping brake\gas pedals, folding side view mirrors, and remote start.
