"I have owned 2 other e-class. a 2002 and 2004 both were new at the time. i purchased the 2003 e-500 from a neighbor the car was in great condition. after about a year the air shocks went cost over $4000 to fix about 6 months the ABS system went $2500. went on line and found out that the 2003 e-500 is a problem all around. i will never buy a MB. ALL fluff over priced and repairs at the dealer are crazy. stay clear"

"I just purchased recently this use, low miles, well taken off E350, I've own a number of BMW's (5 & 3 series), but this vehicle is made for long trips, short trips and everything in between, in style and comfort. Great daily driver. Got a great deal based other E350's for sale in my area. Researched the vehicle and prices, which I advise everyone to do. Had my mechanic review it with two thumbs up."

Pros: "It is the Lowest cost long term med size car ever"

Cons: "Synthetic Oil changes every 15000 miles"

"Other than normal wear items, ie tires, oil, filters, brakes, mounts, I've only had one large service bill in over 300,000 miles of driving. Being the last of the non bluetec diesels, this straight 6 Mileage ranges from 33 to 41 mpg, depending on weather, tire pressure, temperature and road conditions. Changing the coolant system thermostat will increase the fuel mileage up to another 10%. Interestingly the newer blue tecs lose about 10-12% mpg. But the brand new 2015 E250 4 cyl maybe a game changer. There is no other more efficient comfortable car on the planet, I can drive for 6 hours straight and feel refreshed. My VW Jetta diesel the limit is a few hours. I'm planning on at least 500,000 miles before going to the new 4 cyl E250 bluetec (or maybe look at the dark side - BMW diesel). I wouldn't hesitate to drive across country in this well built and well maintained vehicle. Around 4 years this cruiser will retire. I have seen the E class as taxis with over a million miles in Germany. This has been the best all around Mercedes Ive ever owned, out of a total of 8. If the car has excellent service & maintenance records it can be a great buy, if not keep away...."

"Nice array of features for the driver to set at a given preference. The "500" provides great acceleration making it fun to drive and good for avoiding unwanted driving situations. The adjustable suspension and other high tech features are expensive to maintain. I purchased an extended after-market warranty, which was costly, but less expensive then being without it. Is it worth it? Yes! Love the E-500!!"
