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.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Has a gr8 ride and a gr8 car for the family

Cons: Light color interior not for kids

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.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Car has a great ride, very spacious inside and seats are the best. has a lot of amenities that are not available on other makes.

Cons: None

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.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Spacious, reliable and stylish family car

Cons: Parts costs are a little higher than a Toyota

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.)

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.

Nice — It is a good car that handles well and is easy on the eyes. Very fuel efficient and not a gas guzzler as people tend to say. If well maintained, the car can last you a life time. Sweet, sweet.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: We be rolling

Cons: The service firm meant to maintain it

Great Car To Get You From A To B With A Nice Bit Of Class. — The Mercedes is quite a fun car, but Mercedes should have tuned the 5.0L for more than 303 hp. Its starting to appear a little bit dated, and making me want to give it the 2007 facelift. Nice braking, 4-matic makes it easy to drive. The Airmatic and the 20s tend to make it a little numb when pushing it in the corners. The ESP inserts itself flawlessly when it is needed. Decent mileage for the engine size, good power, but like I mentioned, some V6s are being produced with more power, Mercedes Tax applied to EVERYTHING.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Its a Mercedes.

Cons: Its a Mercedes and will eventually break.

I Loved This Car!!!!! — its a great car overall an definatly a sleeper looks great runs fast and is a head turner good for driving around town or taking out to the track on the weekends and it can comfortably carry 4 people with enough trunk space to carry home the groceries

Pros: its fast off the line good in the curves and has an amazing amount of power to be a 4door sedan with a ride that can only be described as the finest benz has to offer not the stiff sports car ride but an i would drive across the country in this car feel

Cons: if your looking for gas mileage get a prius

A Classic Even If It Is A 2005. — Surprising 27mpg on highway for V8. At 85mph. Dynamic seats are superior. Nightmare maintenance. Thankful warranty for repairs. Great looking when you see me coming...and my tail lights are just as nice when you me going. Takes off like a jet - just as any Mercedes should...

Pros: Everything.

Cons: Maintenance. And it's silver.

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
