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.......?

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: acceleration

Cons: Maintenance

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.)

Pros: the looks, the acceleration, airbag suspension kit

Cons: haven't found a reason to avoid this car yet

An Understated Quality Comfortable Abe Ride. — Purschased new and optioned out this is still a great car seven years later and I have no urge to replace it. The electronic brake and throttle could have been refined better at parking speeds. The 320 V6 is just fine for 90% of the driving. For that 10% I have a Porsche Boxter, another find car.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Quality appearance and overal performance

Cons: Idiosyncracy (MILD) of electronic control of brakes and throttle at very very low speed

2003 E320 — A 2003 Cornaline Red E320 Sedan with cream beige full leather interior, located in France. 215-HP, 3.2L V6 with approx 65,000 miles (100,000km) on the clock. The car is still a joy to drive and looks stunning, even with minor scratches.

Pros: wonderful to drive, interior is top notch, panoramic roof, Airmatic DC, 4-zone AC

Cons: Airmatic DC shocks are starting to be a bit hard, carpeting is stained

E55 — Absolutely love the car. Could use more power. 500hp isnt enough. Cost of ownership is kind of high, but well worth the car. Twisties, straight line, braking, and ride performance is fantastic. My dream car. Every time i get in the car, a drive is an event.

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

Pros: Speed, build quality, performance, looks, massive brakes

Cons: cost of ownership, 7mpg, speed limiter at 155mph

My Favorite — the braking is aweasome, very beautiful car and so quiet inside. If you drive 120 km/h its the same as driving at 80 km/h. Love the sound system. But i used to have a problem with the Air Condition. Overall its a good car, and it never brokedown on me.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Elegance

Cons: Air conditioning, Computer system malfunctioning sometimes

The Best Automobile I Have Ever Owned. — We purchased our 03 E320 Certified Preowned in 2006, as it came off a lease. I cannot overstate to value-added of the MB certification process and warranty...plus the savings of letting the first owner (who put on less than 12k per/year) pay for the depreciation. The car maintains it's style even today in 2009, drives wonderfully, and our cost of operation has been very low. At 70k we needed a brake job on the front...$500+...but other than that, nothing beyond the routine maintenance. We find this to be the best family auto we've ever owned, and will replace it at some point with another E-Class. Great automobile this...not just a car!

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Performance, fuel econ, comfort, cost of operation, and safety

Cons: Have given up looking for flaws...none found

As a used car it can be great value. There are some fairly basic E Classes out there, because options are so expensive initially. I suppose an A6 Allroad or a Volvo V90 are comparable but the Merced... Read More
