2009 Mercedes-Benz E-Class E350 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 7A)


Review

We bought one certified pre-owned 2009 E350 at MB Encino, California on 3/27/2010. Only drive about one month and 860 miles, there is a front tire pressure problem that was caused by a crack inside of the wheel (rim). We drive this new car very carefully, never hit anything since there is no damage on the outside wheel, also how to we hit or damage inside of the wheel? That is a parts quality problem. MB's warranty should cover it but they don't. Please think about MB's wheel quality, before you plan to purchase a MB, since we found couple cases report about it already. Also, MB's customer service is not friendly, do not answer customer phone call, and do not care customer concern.


Suggested Improvements

Please take this bad wheel of MB E350 back to MB's manufacture, try to find why this happy, and improve it.

2009 Mercedes-Benz E-Class E350 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 7A)


Review

Bought car because of incentives (with premium I package paid only $39k AND got 2.9% financing for 5.5 years, plus sales tax write-off)! The car feels extremely solid and stable and has a remarkable balance of comfort and sporty driving characteristics that few other cars can match. Interior and exterior design are very nice and materials and assembly are first rate. However, vinyl seats are totally out of place in car with MSRP of 57k. They are extremely uncomfortable (sweat inducing and sticky when less than 40 degrees F). Navigation system is a nightmare, too. Nothing is intuitive or easy and even after studying manual for hours the system is still fury inducing.


Favorite Features

Very solid feel, good comfort/handling balance, state of the art safety technology. Sound system has great audio quality. Psychologically, the car imparts a sense of relaxed superiority and induces very conservative, if not slow, driving. I have rarely been so relaxed in a car psychologically.


Suggested Improvements

Navigation system is a nightmare. Voice recognition doesn't work reliably and there is no touch screen, either. Commands are totally unintuitive. Vinyl seats. High cost of upkeep ($300 for glorified oil change every 10k miles, vs. free oil change q15k with BMW), so so fuel economy with gas engine.

Review

Since purchasing my E350 in June 2009, the engine has failed twice. The interior rattles causing annoyance. The car has been back into the garage for noises coming from rear and still has not been resolved by the garage. To be honest with you I am totally fed up with this car as it has caused me so much inconvenience in time and money. Furthermore this car is totally useless in snow conditions because it is rear wheel drive. I strongly recommend consumers not to buy this model. If the garage i bought this vehicle from does not do anything soon then i will be taking further action against mercedes. They certainly do not live up to their name.


Favorite Features

nothing that other vehicles don't have


Suggested Improvements

Needs to improve its mechanics and performance level in wintry conditions

Review

I bought a new 2009 E350 due to the massive incentives, both dealer and financing subsidies in July 2009. If the subsidies did not decrease the price by over 33%, I would not have bought the vehicle. Also, the 2009 fixed a lot of the prior model year issues (e.g., COMMAND problems), and a lot of options (iPod, bluetooth, DVD) were now free. At this price point, the deal was a steal. Coming from an Infiniti G (more hp and faster), I like my change.


Favorite Features

Pros: Timeless exterior design, SOLID on the road, the safety measures to protect occupants, thoughtful touches like ability to change vehicle setup (exterior/interior lights-no dealer help needed), all the cool technology items (CD/DVD changer, SD reader, iPod/MP3 connectivity), AMG package free!


Suggested Improvements

Cons: Xenon is an option, "where is the beef?"-leather is not standard, expensive to maintain.
