"I turned in my 2000 porsche carrera and purchase the E500. What a great car - looks, performace, ride - even reasonable gas mileage on the open road. Holds sufficient number of golf bags and luggage. I tried the LS430 - a mercedes want-a-be. Even my wife likes this and she usually likes smaller cars - its easy to handle."
"I HAVE HAD A BENZ WAGON SINCE 2001 AND I LOVE THEM. BUT THE 2005 E500 IS THE BEST ONE YET. I WOULD NEVER TRADE IT IN FOR ANYTHING ELSE, ONLY FOR A NEWER MODEL. BUT UNTIL THEN, IT IS GREAT AND GOES GREAT IN THE SNOW. I HAVE ABOUT 135,000 MILES ON MINE AND NEVER ANY PROBLEMS.
GREAT CAR FOR ANYONE."
"Great car, performs well. I've owned 2 Q45s and a LS400 - probably greater value in the slightly used Japanese cars. E320 has good fuel mileage for what you're driving. Good ride, not as quite as it should be."
"The weather in WI is terrible four months of the year, snow, ice fog and general muck. The E-4 is sure footed enough that I drive in all conditions. The skid control is hard to beat, but I can still power slide on ice when I want. The high end headlight package has saved several deer. I bought it for safety but the relaibility has been good as well with nothing breaking in 60,000 miles.
I'll buy another when they are restyled in two years."
