"from spring operated cup holder,to leather seats and seamless acceleration, this car is a true pleasure to drive.
The added bonus of being a station wagon only adds to this experience.
Bought used and it has kept its value well.
This is the car you look forward to doing road trips in. Bring them on!"
"My Third E-class ,1995 best quality of the the 3 but unfortunately not a 4matic, the 2002 not impressive at all - the 2008 much a much better car.
The 4matic works flawlessly - rain or snow.
Only problem is cost of dealer service - have found a local MB shop that does great work at a reasonable price.
Biggest down side is the re-sale value. Need to keep these cars for a long time to justify the purchase.
BTW - bought this car CPO with 9000 miles -"
"I've had my E class for just over a year, I bought it used and was told by several people not to buy this car because they can be expensive to repair. I love it more now than I did the day I got it! Yes, it is not cheap to maintain, however, proper maintenance will prevent problems."
Pros: "A Pleasure to drive, especially on long road trips"
Cons: "No center arm rest, not much rear leg room."

"I purchased this 08 E320 Bluetec used with 60,000. I drive 45-50k per year and already have 110,000 on this, my first MB. I tend to buy used 20k-50k mileage cars and put the next 100k on them, but I already plan on keeping this much longer. My first 50k has been an excellent experience. After owning everything from Toyota, Volkswagen, Acura, Audi and BMW, this is my favorite. Currently getting 42+ in straight highway driving @ 55-60 mph. It drops to around 35-37 at 65-70. Overall mpg (70% highway) I'm at 35.
This car has proven to be reliable (even in cold winter start ups)durable, excellent fit and finish, comfortable and a pleasure to drive. No problem getting through our Northern Indiana winter snow with regular all-season tires even though it's rear wheel drive.
Would buy definitely buy this car again."
