Great car. But poor engine quality

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

Review

Love this car, great cruiser, comfortable, great mileage and power. BUT, Mercedes has delivered a car with a poorly designed engine. At 62K, I got check engine light and taking to the dealer was informed that I have to replace the balance shaft of my engine for a cost of close to $6K. According to the advisor and validated by the many articles you can find on the web. Mercedes, E350 engine (this affects E350, ML350 and many other C class cars using the same engine) was built using a balance shaft that was not tempered properly. This affects 10% to 15% of the cars between 2006 and 2007 Worst of all Mercedes will not stand behind the poorly manufactured engine !!!

Best Features

Great cruiser, luxurious car.

Worst Features

Help the poor owners that are impacted by poorly manufactured engines.
