Summary:

I love this car and will again buy the same with the higher model like 2004 or 2005

Faults:

I had to replace the Mass air flow sensor. Apart from that nothing had gone wrong to the car.

The dash board is now showing little cracks and that is on account of the excessive heat in United Arab Emirates. My previous E 320 model 1995 had no issues like that. Maybe the dash board build quality is going down.

General Comments:

My Station Wagon is very comfortable and can easily carry 7 passengers with lot of loading capacity on the roof rails. Recently traveled 5600 KM with family. I had thoroughly enjoyed the tour in this merciless heat in Gulf region.

The second and third row fold able seats are a great option. They can all be folded and the car turns out to be a comfortable bed. My three kids had been lying straight during the journey and were happy with the self leveling suspension due to its comfortable ride.

Leather seats are very firm and I being the only driver had never felt tired during this long tour in terms of distance.

Air conditioner proved to be superb during my total mileage done after purchasing the car. In United Arab Emirates sometimes the mercury shoots to 50 C during the day time. Never ever we felt any heat inside the car cabin.

ABS works very fine.

Gear shifting is like silk.

Second row seat has got lot of leg space.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
