A very solid car but horrible nav system
By Jan on
Vehicle
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.
