My 3rd Benz. 1990E class loved it.2000 S500,had trouble with it. Now this Eclass.So far great. I tend to go back and forth between Benz, BMW,and Lexus. I wanted good mileage, but more fun luxury and performance than a Prius, which I drove as well. I am dissapointed with the direction of the Lexus hybrids(poor mileage). It came down to the Lexus GS450h vs Benz E320 bluetec. Benz won this time around.
Bluetec. Pothole gobbling supple ride. Feels like a tank with a silk lining. Excellent luxury ride and yet solid feel. Enjoy the parktronic and P2 package. The torque is great. Why get the 350?
Looking forward to the supposed S350 Bluetec/hybrid. Too bad sports package not available in the bluetec
