2008 Mercedes-Benz E-Class Review

More about the 2008 Mercedes-Benz E-Class
More About This Model

Mention Mercedes-Benz and a number of images could come to mind: stately sedans, dashing drop tops, self-absorbed celebrities and their tiny dogs, a bank vault. The latter has been used so many times in analogy to describe a Benz's solid construction that it wouldn't be surprising to see an S-Class door guarding the gold at Fort Knox. Give a Mercedes the old door-shut test, and you'll see what we mean. The hefty, precise and vibration-less manner in which it closes gives the feeling that the whole car is carved out of a block of solid titanium.

Of course, there are other traditional characteristics of this venerable German marque that have endeared it to the masses, such as style, luxury and effortless performance. And they're all in plentiful supply in the 2008 Mercedes-Benz E550. For many, the E550 represents the perfect middle ground in terms of performance between the six-cylinder E350 and the tire-smoking E63 AMG. And with last year's midcycle tweaks including a more powerful engine for the mainstream V8-powered E-Class (80 more horsepower versus the outgoing E500), the E550's straight-line sizzle is much closer to the AMG version than the E350.

Should I lease or buy a 2008 Mercedes-Benz E-Class?

Is it better to lease or buy a car? Ask most people and they'll probably tell you that car buying is the way to go. And from a financial perspective, it's true, provided you're willing to make higher monthly payments, pay off the loan in full and keep the car for a few years. Leasing, on the other hand, can be a less expensive option on a month-to-month basis. It's also good if you're someone who likes to drive a new car every three years or so.
