E320 — GREAT CAR! My first Benz, but won't be my last. Bought used 5 years ago, have only had 2 minor mechanical repairs and regular maintenance (brakes, tires, oil chg). Very comfortable to drive, V6 with plenty of power and 28mpg highway.

Great Performance Car, But Had Many Parts Failure Issues — I owned a 2001 E320 and drove it for four years before trading it in. the car was quick from the start and performed very well. I had to constantly replace the brake lamps and turn signal lamps about every two months which was frustrating. All parts of course are very expensive. I had to replace the right and left side catylic converter which each one was a $1,000.00 each including labor.

My First Mercedes — I bought this car from a dealer in 2004 after it came in from a 3 year lease and have been very satisfied with my purchase. Truly the best car I've ever owned. People have been asking me for the last five years when I plan on buying a new car because they want to buy this one, and I've finally decided that this is the year to upgrade. I'm still very happy with my 430, and it only has 150k miles on it, but after 9 good years it's served its purpose.

Great Benz — What makes this car different from the others is the fact that it has a body kit. Which includes, front, sides, and back. With a black roof, and HID lights it will make it stand out from any other Benz. This car is awesome to drive for relaxation or for fast and furious fun.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Mb E320 Cdi Avantgarde — Okay, okay. Anything to get back to the game. I drive a silver MB E320 cdi avantgarde which in my view is the best E class built. tremendous performance for a saloon car which when you look at it looks like an ordinary car. Next best thing to an E55 (forget the E63, too expensive and only half as fun as an E55). However for what is now considered silly money you can get my car with upto 40mpg and cracking performance.

Love, Love, Love------ — I love my vehicle, I did purchase this brand new and it had a high price tag. The is a very reliable Car and built strong. The only MAJOR issue: RUST on outside body...this is a MERCEDES and so disappointed that this company does not and is not willing to rectify this situation. This car was always GARAGE KEPT and well maintained. So Sad! Next vehicle will not be this brand.

Pros

Very smooth and luxurious; plenty of room for people and not bad for cargo. Lots of safety features before they were available on other cars.

Cons

Not as reliable as I would like and when something breaks, it usually isn't cheap to fix. Not the best gas mileage, especially for these days.

Mr Benz Is Awesome — This is my third Benz; I like it very much. While it is over a decade old, the previous owner was very good about care and maintenance so it is in very good shape. It is a high-end luxury car so the power and handling isn't what you'd expect from a sports car but it moves when it needs to and it handles very well, especially with the 4-wheel drive. I used to commute quite a ways every work day and it made that a pleasant experience; now if it could only do something about the other drivers on the road, it would be perfect! Oddly enough, it is often a boring experience; there just isn't a lot of tweaking and fiddling with controls to do. You mostly set things and they just work. Lots of nice little touches that are now standard on lesser cars (interior lights that fade out; exterior lights that stay on a bit so you can see your way, dual zone climate control, etc.). I was wary of the "new" styling but I really like it now; the current crop of Benzs look like the standard melted jelly beans.
