2006 Mercedes-Benz E-Class E350 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 7A)
This new engine combined with the new 7- speed auto tranny provides brisk performance at any speed. The new tranny seem to be in the right gear at all times and pulls away without hesitation. Roomy and comfortable for long drives too. The layout of the speedo, tach and clock is a bit strange since you find yourself looking at the clock when you want the tach. There is also too much information in the middle part of the speedometer without any logical corollation. The NAV system is vastly improved and highly useful. This is our 7th Mercedes-Benz and so far so good.
Performance, great engine and transmission combo, ready to pull away at any RPM range. Comfortable seats, roomy with a well-designed interior.
The instrument panel needs change, the clock and tachometer are the same size and there is too much info in the center of speedo. Brake pedal taking a little getting used to but performs flawlessly.
