Pros smooth 7speed, HK 7.1 surroud sound, GPS, Ipod intergration
Cons xenons not stock...
Summary After having many mercedes i was about to give up buying another mercedes and went to look at lexus but i couldnt find anything that drove like a mercedes. Personally i love the looks of the E class, It drives and rides as good as it looks. The new 7speed transmission is ultra smooth and a good match to the V6 engine which is quite peppy. The only thing that upset me about this car was not having xenon lights as standard option every lexus and bmw i looked at had xenon lights and out of 12 E classes my dealer had only 1 of them had xenons.
Pros AWD system is best of the best, even better than Audi
Driver headroom far superior to most others in class
Active head restraints are phenomenal at decreasing risk of whiplash
Excellent solid, quiet feel
Cons EPA economy in city is only 17 in AWD model, although this is very driver dependent
Summary End of 2008 produced phenomenal values on this model: less than $25K for certified pre-owned models, and with 4.9% financing available for normal mortals (less than 700 credit scores and 66 month financing, for example). Absolutely outstanding car for the money.
Cons none at all
Summary This is the best car for the money!!!!!!
"Just awesome!"on by Ron Denhaan
Pros Great looks, details, finish, it's a Mercedes
Cons None that I know of
Summary Finished up with my '99 E320 and bought the new E350. Picked mine in Platinum Blue metalic with a light tan interior. Few cars look and drive this nice. You get what you pay for. Don't buy Nippon pretenders to the throne (Lexus, Infinity - Blah). Stick with the best - MB!
"E500 and E63"on by writer24
Pros Beautiful design, luxurious
Cons Horrible engine, alumnium parts.
Summary The E series mercedes is great but not the E350. I own the E55 AMG and it blows this car away. What people don't realize is the 240, 320, and 350 engines are appaling proformance. If you spend 10,000 more you geat a world of difference in the E500, 380 something horses vs. 268. Don't buy the 350 it has a lot of bugs and your alot better off buying a camry.
