2006 Mercedes-Benz E-Class E350 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 7A)
Recently purchased. Car was built in Stuttgart (Sindelfingen) in April '05. The new M272 engine (3.5 ltr V6) is a dream. Together with the 7 speed auto gearbox it has power to spare at any speed. Fuel economy is also good, I guess the 7 speed auto gearbox is one of the mean reasons (at 70 mph only 2100 rpm...) It also has the appearance package with airmatic DC suspension. On the roads around Houston with a lot of uneven road surfaces it just swollows it with ease, while giving excellent cornering capability due to the dynamic control. Really do not need to buy the E500, this car has it all, a dream to drive.
This car was built by engineers who succeeded in building one of the finest cars around.
