2006 Mercedes-Benz E-Class E350 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 7A)


Review

Bought it 6/29. At 1000 miles, notification of airbag malfunction. Mercedes tells me not to drive it for safety. 600 miles after it got fixed, another notification of airbag malfunction. Mercedes has too many electrical problems. Never had problems with any of my Japan made cars (Lexus, Infiniti).


Best Features

Drives good if there are no electrical problems.


Worst Features

Let Lexus make your electrical circuits and transmission.

2006 Mercedes-Benz E-Class E320 CDI 4dr Sedan (3.2L 6cyl Turbodiesel 5A)


Review

I don't think I will ever own anything but a Mercedes now! It's the best! Plenty of room for my family. I cannot believe the fuel economy I am getting! The dealership filled up my tank and I drove on that first tank 723 miles. This has so much power, and looks so slick!


Best Features

Everything! I love this car!


Worst Features

The only thing I can say is that I wish some of the sedans came with a DVD player installed from the factory.

2006 Mercedes-Benz E-Class E320 CDI 4dr Sedan (3.2L 6cyl Turbodiesel 5A)


Review

Faster than a speeding bullet. Finest ride in the world. This Mercedes truly lives up to what the Europeans say: There's Mercedes and then there's the rest. It is safe, quiet. The diesel sounds sexier and quieter than a gas engine, and the turbo makes it faster. I pay 23 cents less a gallon than I do for BMW guzzling Z4 BMW. Buy this car, it will save your soul.


Best Features

DVD, navigation, compass. Stereo, satellite radio. Power everything.


Worst Features

Bluetooth. I have it in my Z4.

2006 Mercedes-Benz E-Class E320 CDI 4dr Sedan (3.2L 6cyl Turbodiesel 5A)


Review

The E320 CDI is very fuel efficient and fun to drive, but the transmission has occassional problems. Slipping during takeoff which my dealer says is normal. Styling is rather bland. Seats could stand to be a little more comfortable. The lumbar support should be power and easier to reach. My biggest complaint is the antique nav system. Somebody must have bought these on a $59 closeout. Charging $2900 for this system should be a felony. It's an unbelievably antiquated system with few features, no touch screen, and no voice command. Also there's no bluetooth unless you buy their phone. I own a 2007 Toyota Camry that blows this car away with superior luxury features. Sorry MB, you need to catch up


Best Features

The diesel engine is wonderfully built. Kudos.


Worst Features

Start providing a decent nav system and reimburse the folks that got stuck with the current one.

2006 Mercedes-Benz E-Class E55 AMG 4dr Sedan (5.4L 8cyl S/C 5A)


Review

No BMW will compare to this machine. Great performance, good looks, and not many people drive it. So it's very special.


Best Features

Incredible horsepower delivery. Great handling.


Worst Features

Bigger wheels. better sound system. Update the navigation monitor. Bluetooth is a must on next model
