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


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.


Best Features

nothing that other vehicles don't have


Worst Features

Needs to improve its mechanics and performance level in wintry conditions

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


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.


Best 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!


Worst Features

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

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


Review

This car is marvelous! The styling with the sport package is great, it drives very well, and is comfortable. The 350 V6 has as much horsepower as my old Mercedes 430 V8. It's plenty fast and I get 20 MPG. It feels as stable and strong as a bank vault, but drives quick and nimble too. The climate control system and 7-channel audio system also are great. My only gripe is with the nav system. It's a pain to use and the screen is too small.


Best Features

Exterior styling, the upgraded leather interior, iPod integration kit, stability at high speeds, sure footed 4Matic handling.


Worst Features

Touch screen nav system, larger nav screen, reduce the number of buttons on the nav system.

Review

Two and a half weeks 1800 miles. Love iy -so solid yet nimble. Last car was 528i(2008). Love the tighter turning circle and ergonomics. Memory card with 510 watts is the easiest way to listen to music. Sports package with silver color is beautiful. First brand new Merc - bought in part because our 98' E320 is still driving so well. Got it for $41.8k too!


Best Features

Memory card/stereo. Transmission. Power. Road holding.


Worst Features

Better i-pod location.

Review

Never buy a mercedes unless you want to overpay for a completely unreliable vehicle. Buying one is like losing money, and keeping one is like throwing good money after bad! I bought a brand new 2009 E350. Six months of ownership, and 3 problems, 2 trips to the shop, 1 tow, 1 battery recharge...and worse of all, tons of aggravation and frustration dealing with Mercedes Benz.
