The E500 is a great pre-owned choice....V8 performance when you want it and when conservatively driven equal MPG to the V6. A quality classic piece as soild as a vault.
an excellent family car
Cons: headresti have had this car for 5 years and it has performed .It is comfortable,luxurious and a joy to drive.Maintenance is expensive.I intend to keep this car for a long time.
Pros: Mercedes is the safest automobile on the road!
Cons: The navigation systemFast, agiile, comfortabe, economical, handsome styling with every ergonomic creature comfort available. That sums up the E-350 Mercedes. Combined with the 4matic transmission it becomes the perfect car for the Pacific Northwest. A consistent 26 mpg on the road and 19-21 around town makes this luxury car competitive with the Accord and similar models. The nimble feel and smooth ride combine to make this a viable sports-sedan for drivers like me. The 4matic never lets me down in winter driving, and provides tiger-like grip on rain soaked roads or patches of gravel. The interior is perhaps the most attractive passenger cabin in all of automotive history. The silver exterior is complemented by the dove gray leather of the interior. Heated and cooled seats is a touch of pampering not found in earlier Mercedes automobiles and is most appreciated. The navigation system is a bit more complex that those found on some other makes of automobiles, but with a short course on the MB system is is both useful and accurate. In sum, the E350 is the perfect balance in automotive engineering.
MB E320 CDI
Pros: Diesel power, fuel mileage, excellent handling, ride.
Cons: Expense to maintain, otherwise nothing.Purchased this E320 used from a dealer in Virginia. No regrets. Best car we have owned. The only reason I did not give it 5 stars was the fact that it is not owner serviceable and no oil dipstick; otherwise it is perfect. Got used to the navigation and love it.
Pros: Comfort and performance
Cons: Better sound system - does not come standard with a CD changer
Advice: NoneHave owned now for about one year. Had a few problems within the first month, fuel leak and faulty stop lamp switch. Has been great ever since. I have driven both the 350 and 500, the performance that you get out of the 350 along with the better fuel mileage and lower price is a better deal.
Pros: Looks, the way it handles, safety, cost...... everything!
Cons: not applicable, I like it all.
Advice: Just do it!!!Have driven Mercedes for years and they just keep getting better! I think this year they have hit an all time high....... better looks and performance than ever before! Keep it up Guys.... and gals.
Pros: Navi system
Advice: Test drive one and you will be hooked.This car is very comfortable and the drive is enjoyable. Very responsive to change of speed and manual shifting. Acceleration is great.
