Want Speed, Get A E500! — It looks, feels and runs great! The handling is awesome and the look is very stylish. I would buy another one today if there was a need. Since the fuel cost has been low, I have had a great time with the vehicle. Performance is wonderful.

Pros

Fast and fun family car. Tons of cargo room in the trunk. Power on demand. Fits 2 baby seats, a dog and spouse comfortably and still moves without hesitation. Great sound from the Harmon/Kardon system. LED taillights and city lights.

Cons

No parking sensors

Fantastic Super Car Status In Affordable Form And Loads Of Style! — "The Beast" still holds onto its nickname with ferocity, This car is crazy fast and very comfortable. A sedan with amazing lines and great posture. The adjustable suspension is a plus and also changes dependent on the speed you are traveling. Super bright factory HID headlights are self leveling and reliable. COMAND stereo delivers great sound throughout the car. I have taken it to a reliable independent shop that does EVERYTHING that MB dealerships do for a fraction of the cost and triple the customer satisfaction and trust. Upgrades are available for the supercharger to gain more horsepower. The staggered wheels set the stance on this luxury sports sedan.

Great Car For The Price — Loved this car. I will get another one later on, probably for a better price. Great family car that can fly like a jet. Braking exceptional. The only draw back was the maintenance from the dealer was pricey, and oh yeah the tires will need to be replaced every 10 to 12,000 miles.

Good Soldier — Performance is adequate in dry, superior in rain and snow. Roomy for 5 adults, good fuel economy approaching 27+ m.p.g. on highway and 22 all-round. Have driven almost 100,000 miles, is good on tyres, is reasonable to insure and is a pleasure to drive daily.

Impresive — Power, ride, Comfort, exspesive, worth it! I as always looking at the AMG and thought there was no other car that Meceds Benz made, But I was forced in to buying any car but keeping my cost down comming off unemployment. I knew I did not want payment but I wanted a reliable car so far I got that and a nice reward.

Pros

Digituning performance, optimized Airmatic handling

Cons

About all service operations require Star Diagnosis

Mercedes-benz E320 Cdi T Automatic — Mercedes-Benz E320 CDI T Automatc 2004. Good performance with standard engine. Stunning performance combined with a great gas-mileage with Digituning. Granny style handling with standard suspension. Significantly improved handling with an optimized Airmatic. Build quality not quite on the level what the car price would let you expect. Resulting in a Cost of Ownership, which is slightly on the high side. About all service operations require Star Diagnosis, making DIY work challenging.

The Beast Runs Free!! — I'm definitely a fan of my E55 AMG. The supersharger and V8 engine are an awesome combination and I really like the way the car shifts up and down via automatic transmission. The seats are a bit worn and the black upholstry on the door pillars and rear deck faded due to sun bleaching. Other than that, the little bells and whistles are so fun. I dont particullarly care for the Command Sudio setup but it is user friendly. For the price I paid it was an amazing deal and I'll be holding onto this car for quite awhile, regardless if I buy another car or not.

Pros

Solid luxury car. Trim on outside and inside says expensive $60k car. Great looks and solid quiet ride. Wide base tires give great grip on the road, but not in the class of a BMW.

Cons

The acceleration for a $60k car isn't great. Plus the rear seating area is a bit smaller than most adults could fit in comfortably.

Great Experience — Really solid experience. Not great with fuel but does pretty well on long highway trips. The ride is great on the open road. Quiet and smooth. The acceleration isn't great but once it gets up to 40-60 it picks up steam really well, which is why it's great for long trips. The inside for the time it was built was pretty nice, the leather trim and nav are good.
