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