This is no doubt a beautiful, powerful, graceful vehicle with great styling without being over the top. Maintenance is expensive. A battery replacement was $450. Keep that in mind when thinking about the overall price of the vehicle and purchase the extended warranty! I had a C230 before this and new what to expect, but it seems maintenance on the E550 is more often and pricier. I am disappointed with CarMax, though, and should have been a more diligent shopper. I've had the car less than a year and have needed a new battery, new tires, and new brakes. Not something you expect to replace with a "new car". There were also two small chips in the windshield that I hadn't noticed but had been treated. Dash rattles.
