This is an amazing car. I love the power, comfort, and style. I was lucky enough to find a relatively low-mileage car, and it is in amazing condition. The Carmax buying experience was the best that I have had.

The E-model make-over for 2010 was a really great update relative to the 2008 E550 I had before this. The 2008 was a really nice car (also from Carmax), but wasn't quite up to my expectations for how a Mercedes E-class should drive. The 2010 E550 takes it to that level.
The 2010's significant strides in vehicle stiffness, steering feel and willingness to turn, make the car a much sportier, capable and fun partner for any kind of driving. E550 powertrain is a carry-over from the previous generation, and a very nice powertrain it is. The interior make-over for 2010 is also well done and welcomed, but I personally prefer the exterior lines of the 2008 a little more.
The only item still on my improvement wish list is for less road/tire noise on grainy asphalt. The 2010 is a little quieter than the 2008, but its still not as quiet as it should or could be. Other manufacturers do this better.
That said, the 2010 E550 is a really great cruiser, daily driver, road trip car, whatever, smoothing the edges off any harshness or abruptness in the driving experience. Even acclerator and brake pedals are calibrated for very smooth application of either.
Overall, a much better than average car and one that I love to drive. Can't wait for this summer's road trips!
