So far since owning the car it has not given me much trouble although dealer oil changes can run a bit high. The car itself is not that great on gas mileage. But I didn't buy it for that. Its hefty price tag was also an issue ($76,720)
This car is among the best I have owned yet. The engine in this car has 469 horse power which is capable of propelling it through the quarter mile in 12-seconds flat at over 114 mph now that's fast for a 4000 pound car. zero to sixty times on this car are also outstanding it scoots to 60 in 4.4 seconds. With all that power I can put on quite a burnout show and blow the doors off of almost ever car out at the local drag strip. I also managed to beat my friend who has a 911 Porshe turbo.
This car features a touch manual shift selection which allows you to manually shift which gears you would like to be in, all done though the buttons located on the back of the steering wheel. This car out on the highway has the power to pass 15 cars. Its also great for long trips, but so far it has only been on one. After previously owning a Jaguar XJR I feel that the interior is not as plush as the Jaguar, but I much prefer the E-55 over the Jag any day. If any of you are into high performance vehicles, I would recommend the E-55 AMG to everyone.
