Mercedes-Benz E320 4MATIC Reviews
My pre-owned E320 is beautiful but with only 76k mi I have had major repair in '11 and 2 more to come i.e valve cover gasket replacement and what sounds like a brake boot so I've been told. I've had it for 5yrs, a light driver and keep on top of my maintenance but these problems are huge and getting costly and they say it's not even broken in! Bah! I feel these issues are too early in the life of this vehicle. My recommendation, buy new.
why is the ride so rough
super car 120k
I owned a e300 before my e320 and I would not own anything else if I can afford it. It has the best ride, offers great dependability and safety as well as perforance of any car I have ever owned. I want to keep it as long as possible.....see no reason to change or upgrade. If I should need another car, I would buy a Mercedes Benz...best value for your money by far. I hope that has not changed in the new models...that does worry me.
I've owned my 2002 E320 4Matic wagon for almost two years now. I bought it with 116k, it now has just turned over to 150k. The ONLY issue I've had with this car is oil consumption. I've read dreadful stories about the issue Mercedes had with that engine consuming excessive oil. Besides that, I love it and will not part with it. Like I've read before, the car is great, nothing like having the confidence in heavy rain. (Must have good tires)!! I expected the mileage to be horrible, I can get 26.7 mpg cruising 80 loaded with a/c going. Quite impressive.
