Pros

Drives in a heavy rain better than a Lexus does when it is dry. Best time to test drive it is during a heavy rain and on the worst road you can find. Then test drive the so called competition and you will see that it has no competition except BMW. Stops on a dime. Fantastic accident avoidance maneuverability. Great acceleration, handling and a blast to drive.

Cons

None.

Awesome — Like other cars, get it serviced by a specialist - not at the dealer and it is cheap to keep. Unless you abuse it - like any other car. Average service with Mobil 1 oil change with filter, new cabin filter, tires rotated and safety checked costs about $205 all in. Does not break down like other cars. Built like a tank and handles like a Porsche at the same time getting excellent fuel mileage.

Excellent Car! — I love my Mercedes E-320! Purchased it used and it's been very reliable. Handles smoothly, easy ride, gorgeous interior, has all the accessories I could want. Car heats up quickly in the winter. Has low wind noise on the highway.

Benz Is Better — This is my 2nd one looking to upgrade to a "S" in the near future. I can't say enough good things about my "E320". It's taken me where ever I've wanted to go without any problems. Rooming and comfortable in every way.

Pros

The car has a special order with the split folding rear seats. The color is great. Looks jade in the daylight and black at night. Heated stearing wheel  and seats are great in the winter or chilly days. Car has great acceleration and brakes.

Cons

Leather seats have some cracks.

Owner — I loved the split fold seats when going to business meetings with supplies. The sun roof help cool me off when the air conditioner was too much. The speed and handling is there when getting on the beltway. The car was very dependable and was on towed two or three times and once was from a flat tire on 295. I love the color and size of the car.

I Love This Car But I Know I Am Going To Miss My Hummer Come Winter '11 — The car boogies when you need it but you'll pay for punching it when you get to the pump. About 70 and change to fill it up. But it is definitely fun to drive especially in the Sport with the suspension button stiffened.

Very Good — I love this car. I bought brand new and i keep it until now. Never had major problem. I try to save money to trade it for a new model. I normally bring this car to dealer for maintainance. I am trying to look for a good Mercedes shop for repair in the future. In the past, i brought my car to the European imports car repair shop, they gave me an estimate and i checked with the dealer. It turns out it costs a lot cheaper than that shop. I was really surprise.

I'll Buy A Lexus Ls Next — Very expensive to maintain (ball joint, door solenoid, cheap interior chrome, etc.); but, great milage, excellent acceleration & handling. Paint on roof can't handle the California sun - its fading - BAD (2003) and the rubber components are of poor quality. BUT, my wife loves the thing, so want can I say.......?

Mercedes Benz E270 Is The Best Car I've Owned So Far — 500,000 km driven and still going strong! Has had it's problems (it had a problem where it just stopped accelerating when it felt like it, for an example) but they've all been fixable. Currently works just fine and it's a fun car to drive, especially when I'm with friends and we're just driving around for fun purposes. So far everyone I've let behind the wheel have been very satisfied with how the car drives and feels like.

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