After looking at multiple at cars, my dad, who was helping me because I was buying my first car and had no idea what to look for, decided that this 99 E320 we happened upon was the best option for me. After test driving her I decided I liked the ride and the size. I'm using to driving army hummvees so I really wanted a bigger bodied car. Looked at several Audis that were tiny in my opinion.

I've only had her about a week and although the dealer neglected to mention some things that needed fixed, I really like her. She has more miles than I would have liked but I've been told they run forever when taken care of.

Love your name. My dad laughed at me when I presented my Hello Kitty vanity plate.

She is a beautiful car to drive..just take care of her..and she will take care of you!

Top open..music loud...Soundgarden ..singing .. Kitty's engine purring...

yep...we are happy...haaaaaa! Okay..back to reality..haaaaa!

Girls rule!

im sorry..anyone who says the E320 is a guy..has issues...shes curvy..not boxy..and i believe more ladies drive them than men...

Had a Jetta VR6 for a while. Been in need of a new car and found that a lightly used entry-level Mercedes was within my price range and I've wanted a Mercedes for a while. Love the style, performance, the class, etc. I knew a guy with a C55 AMG and he loved it.

So far, very happy with it, though still in that few days "honeymoon" phase with it.

How about "all of the above"? :P

My 190 drives and handles like a dream, looks amazing (even though it's in kinda sad shape), is almost ridiculously comfortable, and I got it for $300. Best purchase of my life.

Bought my wife a used 2009 CLK350 Vert and really like it. Had a 2011 535i BMW but no X drive so traded after 29000 miles on the new E550 with the 4.6 bi-turbo and 4-Matic. Incredible car, love everything about it...hell, it even has a dip stick!!

Post Mercedes Car Guy and Ford Truck Guy

I started driving Mercedes in 1997 as a lease vehicle E-350 and loved it, but got 3 tickets in the first 3 months. Had never had a ticket im my life...god I loved that speed and cornering. Lease was up in 99 and rolled into a 99 E-350. They had changed the engine and I had a real problem on the way home from dealer..sudden decelleration followed by sudden acceleration ...could have gotten us killed. Lucky we were on an uncrowed street. Dealer came and got car and Germany wanted Engine and Transmission pulled out... I got a new car and no problems at all. After that we owned C-230 and C-240 as wifes cars and S500 as my car. Found a deal on the 2010 S400 and love it but am currently having a small nightmare installing a Cartronic VIM control for backup camera. That is another post and has nothing to do with car. Fortunately I have my new F150 Ford and my wife has her car. The quality and craftsmanship are the best features and you get what you expect with regard to power and handling. Will probably get S550 4-MATIC for next car and wife likes to drive E-350 4-MATIC. Wish they had not gotten rid of C class Kompressor enginer.
