2009 Mercedes-Benz E-Class Sedan E350 4MATIC 4dr Sedan AWD (3.5L 6cyl 5A)


Review

Sold my 04 BMW 325 conv. and got this as my upgrade. I bought it from Rallye Motors in L.I. from Marianne. Great dealer and she was great. My other car is a 08 G35. This Benz is beautiful. It rides and drives like a dream. So smooth. Quiet. Comfortable. It's a pure pleasure to drive. Only owned it 3 months but it's thus far the best car I ever owned. They did a nice job with this car.


Best Features

Design - it's black with the AMG 5 star wheels, a spoiler on the trunk and and tinted windows. Love the wood steering wheel. The braking is the finest I've ever tried. It's comfortable, smooth, etc.


Worst Features

Cup holders suck but the Germans insist you shouldn't be drinking anything while driving so it's not a big issue with them. Gas mileage isn't that great either. Stereo could be better for such an expesnive car. Have a better one in my Infiniti G35.

Review

This car is a Teutonic Masterpiece! I have owned them all...BMW, Porsche,Ferrari...and absolutely nothing...nothing... compares to this BLACK 09 E350 4MATIC w/AMG SPORT PACKAGE. Pure panache. Outstanding comfort, ride and performance. Bullet proof buid quaklity. If you have the means...go out today and buy an 09. The 56K price tag new has now depreciated to 35K. Pick a ,low mileage version and your at auto nirvana. Then, go buy a black mock turtleneck, add jeans and your favorite shoes and start cruising. You'll feel and look like a 1percenter...make no apologiZes to anyone. You earned it.

2009 Mercedes-Benz E-Class Sedan 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.


Worst Features

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

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.


Best 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.


Worst Features

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.
