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.

I Love This Car. — I drive about 400 miles each and every week. This car has been faultless in every way. Mileage is around 30 MPG freeway. Very comfortable and the amenities are well thought out and actually useful. I bought this as the second owner and now have about 115,00 miles on it. The TV commercial with the big baby which turns out to be the guy's car, makes complete sense to me...I really understand how someone can truly feel so good about their automobile. I Love This Car!

Wow! — So far there are no dislikes. The ride is so impressive, you really think your driving a smaller sports car not a family sedan. The power is a bit scary at first. I have driven american muscle cars before but THIS TAKES IT to the next step. It handles like no other car I have driven including the Porsche 928. MB got it right with this AMG.

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.)

Beyond Expectations — Bought my E55 AMG 2 years ago with 62K miles. Replaced all belts, fluids, spark plugs, engine mounts, a seal, etc...Since then it's only needed gas, oil and Tires. This car is a beast!! Unbelievable power, very aggressive look, Great gas mileage for what it is (drove from Houston to Florida at 80-100 mph and averaged 25.8 mpg!!! If you find one, invest in the up front preventative maintenance and enjoy!! I highly recommend this vehicle

Probably The Best — I rate E-Class as one of the best in the line up. Only problem I had was corroded engine cover (kompressor). And it's road handling is marvellous. Fuel consumption is great. Probably the best car I had in my garage.

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.
