I love this car, it is getting old though. I was purchased in 2004, it has had many repairs in the last 2 years. But it still runs greatly with 110,998 miles on it.
Size is perfect. Plenty of cabin room for 4 adults. Lots of head room. Only car close is the Bentley GTC for $130K more. I'll take the E350A.
I have owned many cars in my 77 years & this one is great!
I bought this car in early 2013 with only 39k miles on it. When I looked at it, it appeared to be a cream puff. Perfect example of not judging a book by it's cover. In this short time, well, I can't even remember the list of engine components that the dealership had to replace within the first two months. In July, the transmission dropped. As far as looks and performance, the car is awesome...when it works.
I love this car. Mine is silver colored, inside is dark grey leather and the dashboard has wooden panelling. It's sheer elegance. The driving comfort is superb, the automatic gear is superb, even in the mountains it reacts fast. There are two downsides: it has rear wheel drive, which is not ideal in snowy Switzerland, even with winter tires it skids on slush. And it does have its little issues from time to time - something I had not expected from Mercedez-Benz.
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.
Pros: exterior&interior styling
Cons: nav system , confusing at timesGreat price on a certified vehicle with 7500 miles ..love the look of the 2-door coupe & 4 bucket seats .. plenty of room for front and rear passengers .. exterior & interior are almost flawless in constuction ..
