My Favorite Mb Sedan — I have owned numerous MB vehicles over the years. This has been my favorite sedan. The mpg for highway driving is an amazing 37mpg. Interior is high quality and still looks new. I always feel safe driving a MB. This is my first diesel, but will not be my last. They are durable and get great gas mileage.

Cons

Expensive to maintain.

Wife Pleaser! — Excellent vehicle for long trips. Fast, reliable car with great gas milage. But once a year it needs maintenance that usually costs $1000 per visit to the dealer if nothing is wrong. Mercedes headquarters will not back an owner if a dispute arises involving a warrantee claim.

Amazing Supercar Sedan — A powerful beast, very rare to find , the supercharged motor growls everytime you touch the gas, fully loaded tons of features. I highly recommend any one to buy an e55, only cons it has is the cost to maintain still highly recommended.

Luxury Sport — I love my E500 great power/speed. You have the luxury when needed. Great overall car. Just have to do your routine maintenance of normal wear and tear parts. If not it will break down. Certain parts are designed to eventually wear out because of the high speeds.

Best Car Ever I Own It. — This car handles great and has been very reliable compare to what others have written about it. It has very good acceleration, gas mileage is decent and the interior/exterior design is fantastic. I love it. Again Best Car so far for 2014

Pros

Totally trouble free. This car has been as reliable as my Honda (no small feat!). 36MPG on the highway at 70 mph. Quiet, passengers have no idea it is a diesel. Performance is better than the gasoline version of the same car.

Cons

Just I can say nothing bad about it.

Best Car In World — Initially , i use to be a big fan of Audi as i owned one , heavy weight and great dynamics i thought could not get better than Audi. But once i sat in E500 i just loved interior and bought it without second thought. It never turned down my expectations. Once i was driving in New England Storm i took exit for gas and got stuck in 3 foot snow. But i now my merc can handle it like nothing , i switched to Sport mode and press the pedal it jumped of the heavy snow like a tiger everybody around just baffled as they shoveling hard to get their car out of snow. I can drive 50 miles an hour on ramps like nothing

Great German Engineering — The car as a lot of torque when you need it. Handles like no other sedan and ride is by far the best out there. You can set it for a sport ride which is very tight or a soft ride that lets car float going down the road. Very roomy inside for 4 adults plenty of leg and headroom. Trunk is 1 of the biggest in this class of car.

This Is A Great Family Car And For Trips Also. — What I like about this car is its handling which is second to none in the class of cars. The car is very quick when you need to get going on freeways and such. Very quiet inside cabin at cruising speed of 70. Great sound system, and safety features are great.

2005 Mercedes-benz E-class E320 Wagon — I bought this used car as a cheap and cheerful load-lugger for shopping, baby commuting etc. It has far exceeded my expectations, with a very high level of factory options. The engine bay is as new, and just about everything on the car worked perfectly despite having lead a fairly tough life before my ownership. I have had to change engine and transmission mounts and a few bushes under the car, but otherwise it has been faultless for such a high mileage car.

Pros

Nothing handles as well as this mercedes.  Acceptionally reliable on the road in good and bad weather.  Feels like I'm driving on the autobahn every time I drive her.

Cons

With gas prices as high as they are, it only takes supreme gasoline, which can be harsh on your wallet.

I Love This Car And Would Buy Another One Soon! — I don't like the high maintenance on this car but the drive and feel is well worth the price of a $150.00 oil change. It handles well, very roomy and does not take long to accelerate on the highway through traffic.

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