Beautiful, But Horrible: 2003-2005 W211 E-Class

February 20,

We all have our guilty pleasures. used to be watching How I Met Your . until I got to season seven and it was taking way too long to find out who the the mother was. Seriously, I after seven years, would settle for someone and to love them later. I believe, is the same reasoning as to why the Camry tops the sales It’s buyers will buy it of the reviews and reputation, live it for seven years, and then say the best car in the world and they it because there’s no reason to it for seven years.

And so we come to my automotive guilty the W211 E-Class. You know, the car as being the most beautiful at that time (ironic was the regiment that the car was supposed to been subjected to), and it was (at until the CLS debuted). It also in Men In Black 2 . where it belonged to the Smith character. Available a 3.2-liter V-6 (this one had more or a 5.0-liter V8 (since this one was longer, not as many), it should underscored Mercedes’s reputation for cars made to a standard.

despite being a Mercedes, it had an high number of reported With Mercedes problems being at a high because of the with the W210 (the E-Class with four Mercedes loyalists decided to the problems down as a one time and bought these cars in Big mistake. Many of them Mercedes cars for the rest of the Some even didn’t buy the CLS it was available at the end of their lease specifically because of their experience.

The fun part was in 2007, when I was my uncle look at midsize sedans. Every salesman than the Mercedes salesperson how their business on the BMW 5-Series/Audi GS/Infiniti M went up purely of people scared of purchasing Mercedes because of the rampant with them. In fact, the BMW specifically referenced how many had bought the 5-Series after out their E-Class leases they had grown tired of the car to the shop all the time. Needless to my uncle didn’t get the E-Class, it becoming an E350 with the new transmission.

So why do I like it? It mainly has to do with the At the time of its debut, it was fresher than the E39 5-Series and the styling was much improved over the But the W211 E-Class became better-looking when the E60 5-Series, BMW designer Chris Bangle’s design language came Then people who once easily bought the 5-Series to give the E-Class a look.

all, the W211 handled than the typical Mercedes, yet so good. And it had so many new whiz-bang options to make it worth the Unfortunately, within a month of all the problems would come And there were a lot. For one of my dad’s friends owned a E320. Within six months it was oil onto the garage floor. knows how many times he had to it to the dealer for electrical issues. By the end of it, he was it a girl’s car. Needless to I don’t think he’ll buy ever again.

There were many This thread on the MBWorld documents every single wrong with the car. And were a lot. From controller issues, to brake issues, door locks and air suspension failing to work. As a every thread about W211s will tell you to any of the cars from 2003-2005. You but I know I won’t.

That’s when the much-mechanically improved, versions of the W211 E-Class in 2007, they had a new upright and a new front bumper that look as cleanly integrated as the old one Additionally, I think they the taillight design too much. the wheel designs got boring. had ruined a once-beautiful car. My is they did it so they could E-Class customers or E-Class towards the CLS, with its transaction prices and being just for looks.

In the end, I’d buy one of these on alone and the fact they go for a Sure, I might have to a bundle on maintenance but eventually be fine. A purchase of an early E-Class is similar to the purchase of a Alfa Romeo. At some you’ve replaced enough of the and done enough work the car is in better shape than it first left the factory. the type of devotion the W211 requires. In my view, it’s going to be a future classic the older W110s and W115s the 1960s and 70s, but with better looks. You should consider it.
