Our Fleet Test Drive: Mercedes E-class - 4th Report

Date: 01 April 2010   |   Author:

Washer fluid

The E-class has arrived when I've been on the road even more than normal, handing out BusinessCar Awards to the companies the readers of the publication have chosen as the best in the business.

And racking up the miles has shown what a quality long-distance machine the E-class is, carrying me in serene comfort across the country. It's also highlighted quite how much grime and slime there is on the roads, because I seem to be getting through screen wash at a similar rate to fuel. It'll be nice when winter finally gives up and we head towards the warmer, lighter weather.
