Pros: "Comfortable; great ride"

Cons: "Placement of MP3/Ipod cords; lack of backseat pass"

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 10

"This car has all the features I required, plus many additions. The leather heated seats with the button adjustments on the door is great- no fumbling out of view to find buttons. The ride is comfortable, quiet and smooth. The only maintenance thus far has been routine. I owned 2 Volvos prior to this car and the maintenance cost, thus far, has been less. The audio system is great, including the built-in GPS. The design of the dashboard and steering wheel buttons are conveniently placed. The 4matic feature handles well in wet and snowy conditions. The moon roof (versus sunroof) is great and much appreciated by backseat passengers. The things I would change (not biggies) are adding folding back seats for trunk access and moving the MP3/IPOD cords from the glove compartment and closer to the driver."

Pros: "Reliability, comfort, low cost maint. to-date"

Cons: "Clock changing and front cup holders"

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 9

"The only issues with the car are the design of the cup holders in the front (dumb) and the process for changing the clock. I assume and hope newer models have improved both."

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 8

"I bought this car CPE with 22,000 miles on it and it now has 78,000. I've had some problems with exhaust gas sensors, the command system and with the rear sun shade all of which have been fixed by the dealer quickly and under warranty. I'm a little concerned about the maintenance cost after next year when the warranty will expire. Maintenance cost risk aside it's a great car. I have the Vl-6 Turbo Diesel and it has great power, is quiet and comfortable and I can easily travel at any speed the law allows and more even here in Texas. I have averaged about 33 mpg since I've had the car."

"Car is loaded,always garaged, never driven in inclement weather, and fully serviced by dealer. New Michelin Pilot A/S tires. All books and records. May be the best 2008 E-class on the road."

"I owend this vehicle for just over a year and have driven right at 20,000 miles. I really like it. It looks great, and handles great and it is sporty looking for a wagon. I have not had any mechanical issues at all. I have had an issue with the radio, but no other issues. No engine light has come at this point. Compared to Lexus LS460, the Mercedes is a heavier safer vehicle."

Cons: "Too many troubles for too much money"

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 1

"Owned this car for six years .it was a nice car to drive but you must be the servant to the car.when you paid higher price for the car I feel that it should serve us not the other way around. The third year the fuel pump went then the cd player got stuck needed to be replaced .the fourth year we had to keep adding one quart of oil every couple of months. Every little gilts , it s a trip to the dealer. I would recommend this car to anyone if they like eating free bagels and donuts at the dealer."
