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


Review

Three major problems resulting in overnite service: Emergency brake release came completely out of dashboard; could not move vehicle. Harness for seatbags defective and had to be replaced. Starter key went "dead" after 17,000 mi. Could not reset clock for daylight time, nor could three dealer service personnel! Confusing option "sets" on steering wheel. etc etc


Worst Features

Remove significant number of items which are superflous to performance and are computer operated! My l998 E320 was perfect! Wish I had not turned it in!

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


Review

The Mercedes E350 wasn't my first choice for a midsize car. After driving a BMW 3-series for 6 yrs, my obvious choice was a 5-series. The 5-series design is ugly and I-drive is terrible, car was more nimble and fun to drive than an E350. Definitely a beautiful car that turns people's heads.


Best Features

Beautiful, moodlights at night, fast acceleration, MB star on hood :)


Worst Features

Better transmission, better fuel economy, more standard features (blutooth, touch screen navi, bigger navi screen, better navi, xenon headlights, full leather seats, valet trunk locks, puddle lights (as in the 2003-2005 e class) better radio, memory seats 1 touch, digital dual zone climate control

2006 Mercedes-Benz E-Class E500 4MATIC 4dr Sedan AWD (5.0L 8cyl 5A)


Review

This is our second Mercedes. Our other one is a 2006 CLS55 AMG. I bought this E500 this May with the Sports Package as well as the Apperance Package. I love the Sports package with the dual exhaust, sports suspension, and high performance tires. I live in a wealthy town, and I see Mercedes all the time. I wanted mine to be & look different and it does. I am yet to see another E500 with the Sports Package. From my understanding, not alot were made for the 2006 model.


Best Features

Dual exhaust, high performance tires, sports suspension, that the car can raise & lower, the look, but most of all driving it!


Worst Features

There are definitely blind spots...yikes!

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


Review

Have owned BWM, Volkswagen, and Volvo vehicles. This MB is by far the best in terms of build qulity, ride, and engineering. This is my first diesel, so I'm hoping for a huge improvement over my current SUV (16 mpg). The design is timeless and the car feels like it will go hundreds of thousands of miles.


Best Features

CDI engine (power!), keyless go, bi- xenons (they light up the night!), ambient lighting, summer opening feature (windows/sunroof), electronic trunk closer, sensuous body lines, MPG, steering wheel entry/exit feature, MFD that lights up when using cruise control, jealous stares from strangers :)


Worst Features

Navigation is too complex/too many buttons. Remove key chime w/keyless go. Ability to scan preset radio stations from steering wheel. Can't add MB SAT radio unless you order it from the factory :(

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


Review

I looked at MBW, Lexus, and Infinity. However, MB E350 proved to be the better choice. Great car! It turns heads, all over. The dual moon roof is a big plus. The ability to choose between comfort or sport suspension at the click of a button makes it more appealing. The sound system is superb.


Best Features

Sound system, dual moon roof, and the looks of it. Gas mileage is great. Avg. 24.5 mpg, not bad.


Worst Features

For the price, 18" wheels should be standard, DVD Navigation system should come with TV capability and game console connections.
