2007 Mercedes-Benz E-Class E350 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 7A)
Coming from an '06 330i. This car is feels like it's built like a tank. It has such a heavy feeling my wife feels really secure with. I think it feels too heavy, and a bit too soft, but not like a Lexus at least. You can feel the road below you, just with a filter whereas the BMW lets you feel everything. The engine is quite good, lots of torque in low RPMs. Fuel economy is not as good as a BMW, but respectable. Dealer installed Continental ContiSport3 tires. Wish they used something else -- they are really loud. And the navigation really is terrible -- only can direct you to a number range on any given street. Welcome to the 21st century, Mercedes!!
Looks great, inside and out. Lots of torque. Great stereo.
They already fixed the navigation issues in 2009. Xenons should be standard on a car of this price.
