2008 Mercedes-Benz E-Class Wagon E350 4MATIC 4dr Wagon AWD (3.5L 6cyl 5A)


Review

I owned 2008 E-350 class. I have maintain this car perfectly. Since purchasing the car I had several annoying problems which where fixed at the MB dealer ship at inflated prices. However the last episode was the Break down of the car REAR DIFFERENTIAL AT$4300.- COST.This is an extreme case of part breakdown which can not be justified especially when buying "fine engineering car....."

Review

My E350 wagon was just broken in and it is such a smooth and refined family vehicle. The suspension is stiff, however the ride remains composed and luxurious. The car handles so well you forget the car weighs over 4000 lbs and it is actually fun to drive for a station wagon. It's not fast, however it has plenty of power for easy around town and highway driving. The driver's seat is so comfortable and piloting this Benz is truly a pleasure and a big step up from my previous Audi A6 Avant. It also gets decent 25 mpg while crusing at about 75-80 mph.(much better than EPA's 21 mpg estimate)


Favorite Features

Build quality, refinement, luxury, standard 4MATIC AWD for excellent handling and grip in dry and wet weather


Suggested Improvements

A little more power for a V6 wouldnt hurt, and why no sport package for the wagon?

Review

This was a perfect buy even though the 65k total cost is excessively priced. The car has utility, style, power, comfort, safety and AWD making it the most practical car my family has ever ridden in. The E350 wagon is one of the very few cars that has utility for a whole family w/ luggage and the ride quality of a sport sedan. 4MATIC is very grippy and 3.5L V6 is powerful and sounds very classy when revved up. While it's no gas guzzler, I average 18 mpg wherever I go and that's not exactly great considering premium fuel can cost over $4 a gallon. But the car is so comfortable and the driver's post is excellent. Piloting this car is truly a pleasure. Styling is gorgeous!


Favorite Features

4matic is flawless in any weather condition. COMAND navi system works great when you get the hang of it. The suspension is tuned sharply enough for good handling, yet soft enough for a smooth cruise. Feels very solid and tank like also.


Suggested Improvements

A little expensive, but I understand its worth it. Low mpg in both city and highway

Review

Braking noise & quirks have been completely resolved from earlier E models. In fact,braking is excellent in terms of both "feel' & response at any speed including into curves. Steering has now a really nice degree of response at both high/low speed. Fit & finish just beautiful. Although car not broken in yet, I'm getting 10.8L/100km (about 27 mpg) highway without using cruise-control @ 120kph (75 mph). Extra power available through all speeds. Seat comfort very good. Paint & exterior fit integrity excellent. Quiet interior. Cargo area large & usable. Audio/phone/car computer controls on steering wheel easy to learn. Heat/cool systems accurate. 5 speed transmission nice. Road feel is there, but not harsh.


Favorite Features

Great ride quality. Steering/braking excellent. Fit & finish both inside & out 2nd to none. Good power available through all speeds. Better cargo-area than most competitor's wagons .Rational layout & features, no quirky "why did they do that?" aspects.


Suggested Improvements

Locate park-brake pedal further back into footwell (to reduce driver scuffing shoes upon exiting). Improve visability rearward out cargo window (enlarge window).
