Mercedes Benz E 320 1997 — This Mercedes Benz type, is the successful E class of all time. started since 1996 until the last model 1999. It has powerful 6-cylinder 3200CC engine, very nice suspension (although you lowered it) and of course very nice handling. The appearance of this car is so luxury, just like a prince from heaven.

Fun Family Car. — I love this car!! My lead foot loves the quick and reliable acceleration from a dead stop or to pass from a nice cruising speed. Rides smoothly and quietly. The car is sturdy and big enough for my family, yet fun enough for an enthusiast. MPG is good for 8 cylinders. FUN FUN FUN.

Best Car I've Ever Owned! — Fantastic car... plenty of power,nice amenities, inconspicuous, and reliable as hell. Comfortable long-hauler. It's a sleeper.Love the heated seats! Classic body style still looks good after all these years! The Germans really know how to build a car!!! Bought this one for less than $1000, and can't imagine a better car for the money...

'97 E420 - The Best Of All Worlds... — Amazing performance, one of the very safest cars in the world (at any price), excellent visibility, extremely comfortable for long-distance trips. One of the best high-performance family cars you can possibly buy. An incredible value! Safety, luxury, power, comfort, and German sedan handling. Under 84xxx miles.

Pros

Power, braking, comfort, space, features, safety, appearance

Cons

Would benefit from sportier suspension and less weight

97 E420 Sport — The 4.2L engine is incredible, and performance only hampered by the weight of the vehicle. Surprisingly easy on tires. Great braking power. Fuel economy is around 18-20mpg mixed driving. The 5-speed automatic is very versatile and driver- adaptive. You don't get those constant upshifts-downshifts like on the earlier E320 (and ML320) models. Very roomy and comfortable. Still gets compliments!

Really A Work Of Art — this car is different from all the other e-class because it has been specified and i bought it and issued it straight from the factory whereas i didn't even go to the dealership to get it, all interior electronics are all custom fitted and seats are are really comfortable

Build To Last, Easy To Burn! — Solid build quality and presence that can't be denied. Performance was outstanding for I-6 engine. Electrical issues spoiled the day. Ownership cost though was comparable to mid size sedans. Overall, its nice to have it once in a while.

Nice Built Car — This one looks really old today... But comfort is on top. Buy E55 AMG if you want great perfomance.
