"I bought my E320 certified used at 28,000 a little over a year ago. I put another 18k in that time. One minor electric glitch (if I pressed door unlock button for back seat person to get out the multi cd player compartment would open) but that was fixed. Other than that Ive had a terrific time. My seats massage and hold onto you when you do corners etc which is really nice. Wife, who wasnt sold on MB before, finds excuses to drive my car. Youre paying for luxury in terms of cushiness inside/gizmos galore and really smoothe drive. This is my second - last MB was an 02 C320 Wagon. That was zippier/tighter feel but probably since it was a smaller body on same engine."
"My 5th MBenz. This E550 is outstanding. It will get 29mpg at 70 mph and average 20 in town. But the performance is unreal. Realize this car will do the 1/4 mile in 13.4 which is what a C-5 vette will do. Amazing.
Nav, heated and cooled seats are great. Almost the same performance as an AMG.
No problems at 16k miles. Entry cost is pretty sporty, but no one does it like the Germans."
