The Perfect Blend

The E550 is the perfect blend of luxury and performance. After looking for over a year it came down to the Mercedes-Benz E550 and the BMW 550. I bought an E550 with the Premium II Package which has a lot of nice technology built into it. The Mercedes is by far the definitive choice. The Benz is faster and a MUCH better ride. The BMW 550 handled corners better but on my 25 mile drive to work, I don't take corners over 100 mph (90 maybe). The MB E350 was also a very nice car, but the E550 (5.5L engine with 382 HP) is the way to go. The comfort of the E550 was far superior to the BMW 550. If you were torn like I was, go test drive an E550 Benz--you will not be disappointed

Best, most reliable, fastest Car I've Ever Owned

by from Phoenix, AZ on February 18, 2012

I've said it all in the title. This is an extraordinary car in every respect. Performance, Reliability, interior Design, Value. The only "slight" flaw is that the new E550s have a slightly different styling in the front and rear. If I could, I've rate the performance of this car as a "6" on the scale of 1 to 5!!! So if you want an absolutely great "used" car for the money, you won't regret buying a 2007 or 2008 E550.

Luxury and Power

The E550 actually feels luxurious when you sit in it. Good leather, wood, chrome. Not plastic. The engine is magnificent! The front of the car lifts when you bury the pedal. You pass everything. The ride smooth without losing road feel. The one flaw is the suspension and traction control (which can not be completely disabled.) You can't really drive this car aggressively into corners. The traction control kicks in and hits the brakes. The suspension doesn't respond how you expect... You just can't do it. But, I don't mind that much because everything else is done so well. Besides, most of the time I only really need the strait line acceleration.

The E550 is one of the best luxury car I have owned. I love the power and performance of the car. Some of the interior elements leave a bit to be desired. They could use some better material than plastic for control knobs. Other than that the car is awsome!

A true "Benz" again

As rock solid as my 1995 E class. Bluetec motor is smooth, quiet and will plant you firmly into the car's supportive seats. The Benz "feels" like a Benz for the first time in a decade. Who needs counseling, this car is my "therapy." Glad to see Mercedes back on track. 25K miles and oil changes only.

Best car

by from Eastern Shore, Md on October 20, 2010

Needed a car for the wife. Safe, stylish, not to big. Does not look like old folks even though we are.

This is a great car. IT is a 2009 E350 Avantgarde Edition. The Avantgarde Edition is when it comes with over $8000 in options which include a 510 watt Harmon Kardon stereo, COMAND, Heated front and rear seats, real leather, AMG package, and many more. It is very luxurious. tHe leather is soft and the black birdseye maple wood adds even more elegance. By far the best car I've ever owned.
