Great Luxery Ride — This car is safe, reliable and fun. It has a strong V8 engine, but it manages to get good gas mileage. It has a smooth ride and a beautiful, classic design that never ages. Interior is comfortable and roomy and the design offers great visibility.

Bloody Great Car — A great car that was once the fastest production diesel car, it has a stonking 3 litre chain driven bullet proof engine, with a whacking great turbo! Its also sooo smooth to drive and very good on fuel for a big car.

Fuel economy, ride, drive feel.

Expensive parts

E300dt — It's a beautiful car that rides smoothly. Has lots of room and I have clearance under the sunroof, a novelty for me. Plus we get around 28 mpg. And it is still running well for a car with 197k miles.

Pros

Quiet, solid, well engineered.

Cons

Costly to maintain if you can't do the work yourself.

25

Very Happy With It! — A little on the anemic side but a super solid, quiet car that handles well when pushed. Typical MB "over" engineering, you either have to be able to afford to have them serviced or be a tinkerer yourself. Overall, a fantastic ride that virtually glides down the road. Many times, I go the long way just to be able to enjoy the car for a little longer.

My Dream Car As A Child — Power, that heavy car can move! plus it's safe, built with steal. Nothing says first class and luxury like Mercedes, arguments can be made for all models of luxury car but when it comes too class, style, speed, technology and safety as one package than mercedes-benz takes the cake period.
