Baby Blue by Jo in Indy on 03/24/2011. Trim: 1995 Mercedes-Benz E-Class E320, Owned more than 10 years.
Pros: Quality is the best way I can sum up this machine. I purchased it new in 1995 and she is STILL going strong at 15 years old and 155,000 miles (only owner). It's good on gas and I am amazed by her still turning heads. People always ask if I want to sell her! Keeping up on routine maintainance has paid off. Friends have purchased 3 cars since I've had this one. She has been well worth it and the maintainance has been much less than having a car note (average $1800-2000 per year including tires/oil changes; about $3500 total the one year I replaced oil gasket and other items recommended at 100,000 miles). Performs well on road and a smooth ride.
Cons: No cup holders which I was able to come up with other options for; steering wheel doesn't tilt.
Overall review: It's a classic! I would buy this same car over and over again. I purchased her when Mercedes was changing the model/body style so this one was the last of the 1995 E-320 Special Edition

Perfection by Eric from SLC on 03/24/2006. Trim: 1995 Mercedes-Benz E-Class E320, Owned 1 year.
Pros: Everything is great about this car. Excellent build quality. Purchased a used E320 Special Edition with only 84,000 miles on it. Looks and acts showroom new.
Cons: Lack of cup holders. Other than that, this car is perfect. It's the last of the "real" Mercedes and feels every inch a top quality product designed to go 1,000,000 miles.
Overall review: If you can find a low mile example with all the books and records, don't hesitate to purchase. You won't regret it.

Classic Benz by Tony on 09/17/2005. Trim: 1995 Mercedes-Benz E-Class E320, Owned less than 1 year.
Pros: -- Classic styling -- Extremely comfortable and supportive seats -- Quiet luxurious ride that isolates you from the outside while allowing you ro feel the road
Cons: No cup holder!
Overall review: I bought this car used and am the third owner. There are a few well documented issues that you should look out for if you are in the market for this vehicle, including the following: -- Head gaskets will start to leak oil around 90-100K - if replaced there is no problems -- The wiring harness was made of bio-degradable material and guess what?? Over time, it "bio-degrades" so ensure your car has had the wiring harness replaced and it will be fine -- The tranny is a little clunky when cold but is silky smooth once it has warmed up These cars are built like tanks and some say they were the last real Mercedes, since they were built before Chrysler got involved. The ride is quiet and firm and although you can sense the road and feel what's there, it seems distant and far away. The seats are probably the most comfortable car seats I have ever sat in, with firm lateral support and a back that just works. The controls are laid out in a logical, albeit quirky fashion, but once
