Doug DeMuro Just Bought A Used Mercedes E63 AMG Wagon For $44,000

Since buying a used AMG-powered Mercedes-Benz almost always means high maintenance costs, getting a 3-year unlimited mileage bumper-to-bumper warranty is definitely the way to go.

It’s exactly what Doug DeMuro did for his latest ride, this 2012 Mercedes-Benz E63 AMG Wagon, which will serve as his new daily driver, replacing an older Range Rover.

In the video, he reveals how he came across the car and also what he intended to buy initially, which was an SUV with boxy looks, all-wheel drive and a 360-degree camera for easy parking.

As it turns out, he couldn’t find anything convincing, even though he looked at the BMW X5 M, the 2012 Porsche Cayenne Turbo (not boxy enough), the Macan and even the GL63 AMG, which turned out to be too expensive costing at least $65,000.

In the end, he found this white E63 Wagon at a Mercedes dealer in Minneapolis, which initially cost $49,700, then $47,700 and finally $45,700. After negotiating over the phone, DeMuro bought it for $44,000 plus 2 additional year of bumper-to-bumper certified pre-owned warranty, a wise move when  you’re buying a used car that initially cost well over $100,000.

As for what the E633 can do in terms of performance, its 5.5-liter twin turbo V8 can send 520 HP (525 PS) and 515 lb-ft (700 Nm) of torque to the rear wheels. In a straight line, it will hit 62 mph (100 km/h) in 4.4 seconds and max out at an electronically-limited 155 mph (250 km/h).

    We don’t care !!! Why do you have to write an article on every video that he posts?

    • John

      the guy is mostly reviewing old car that’s been out to sell them… not sure why any of his video would be on a car “news” site..

    • Nordschleife

      I feel like he somehow contributes to this site because I’ve said the same thing.

        Well if you enjoyed it then subscribe to his YouTube channel to make him more money and to be notified when he posts a new video. But these articles have to stop. And as you can see many people share my opinion.

      I’m glad more and more people started saying what I’ve been saying for the past almost two years.

  • Kash

    All in favor of renaming the site to “Doug DeMuro Scoops” say aye!

    • europeon

      If you noticed, it’s the same “author” that keeps writing this kind of “articles” – altho, the others have also started branching into writing about the Dubai BMW showroom, horrible aftermarket rims and tasteless wraps.

      • Kash

        You know I wouldn’t really mind the Dubai showroom articles but they all seem to be from the same BMW dealership and no other brands.

        Also you’re right, it’s kind of like that other author who writes the articles that seem to be about cars but in reality they’re just articles about political issues that only faintly affect or have to deal with the automotive world.
