The Ultimate Wolf In Sheeps Clothing.. — The best car I have ever owned, eats almost anything off the road.. I should never have let it go! It is an expensive car to run but not bad when you consider the power, it will get 25 mpg on long runs and otherwise is quite cheap to run. It really is such fun to drive especially when you beat little punks in their Subaru's etc.

A Great Car Used For The Money — The feel and sound of quality, the way the doors shut, the quiet ride, surprisingly good in the snow (with snow tires), only cons are the electronics are overly complicated, the maintenance reminder won't reset and the sunroof switch is a bit touchy.

One of the best Mercedes you can buy

Cons

This car is quite tedious to drive and park everyday

The Last Benz You Can Buy Without Those Fancy Electronics — A great mid size car to own and keep. Plenty of parts, surprisingly cheap to own. Build quality is very good. Not nice to drive everyday due to a heavy and slow steering. It has a very low ground clearance.

Pros

Solid, well built car that can go for MILES. 200k plus easily!

Cons

Find a good trustworthy mechanic in your area. If you go to the dealer or to a less then honest shop it will cost you $$$ to fix if anything goes wrong.

Great Car, Great Value, Built To Last And Looks Classy Even 15 Years Later — Came from a Mercedes family, have kept early model Mercedes for decades. They are solidly built cars, built to last, are very safe, look great and are less expensive then people assume. They hold their value, and this model in particular was a fantastic investment. Selling mine with 185k in miles for a decent price. Have had people on two occasions approach me in parking lots asking to sell! Great cars!

If You Love Doin 155mph On The Freeway And Still Have Room For The Whole Family, Then You'll Love It — Performance- basically a 4-door rocket on wheels Build Quality- pretty good, i've only had to replace 2 stupid censors Appearance- nice interior, outside looks pretty beastly, I hate the way the headlights look Cost of Ownership- gas mileage isnt great (especially with the way I drive :P lol..), maintenance isnt too bad as long as you dont take it to the dealer Fun Factor- Lots of fun to drive!! love goin fast!:)

Classic Style With An Expensive Side. — I like the size of this car, very much! I wished that it was less expensive to run as an everyday ride. I haven't many miles on her but she's getting some good use. I have been using it as a daily driver for a month now.

Great Great Great — Probably the best car I've ever owned. Bought it used to replace 2005 Lexus and will never go back. This thing runs every day and is just perfect in every way. Buy it used and save big money. It will last a lifetime.

Pros

One of a kind E55. My first Mercedes and man did I hit a home run with this one!  It is the weirdest thing but people ask "if they can see the inside", "what kind of car is it" and some have even wanted their picture taken with it!  Its all flattering but sometimes when your in a hurry its hard to get away, they want to look under the hood and talk about it all day!

Cons

Unfortunately I have to sell it because we have too many cars, I have too many kids and a sick wife who is not getting better soon.  It is not the right car for me at this time any longer.

The Name All The Magazines Gave It Is "the Beast" — In 1999 Car and Driver said "this is the fastest sedan ever to drive the face of the earth". It looks elegant and nobody expects it to have the massive power that it does. It is faster than a corvette and does it while hauling 5 passengers! Last car AMG built before being purchased by Daimler! Now AMG makes cosmetics and sport packages this was a the last of the true AMG's! This is classified as a SuperCar like a Ferrari or a Porsche would be. Truly amazing power and handling from a naturally aspirated engine!
