2010 Mercedes-Benz E-Class E350 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 7A)
Like the car, but should have more at the price, even when discounted heavily. Even the comfort suspension on E350 Luxury has too much impact harshness over most road imperfections and too little damping, especially at low speeds. Navigation and Audio are too complicated. No cover on underside of parcel shelf in trunk, making it looks cheap. Spare tire cover has to be FORCED in and out with great effort- poor design. Carpet & mats are thin, even compared to economy makes. Engine is underpowered which causes using more fuel to accelerate or go uphill. Seat heater cuts off after 10-20 minutes and has to be re-started. Storage box on front of seats hits back of legs. Hood release is hard to find.
Interior & exterior design, H&K surround sound, Music Register, Safety features, relatively quiet, ambient lighting, auto headlights w/ DRL. On demand tilt down mirror, overall comfort, Dual A/C, Rain sensor wipers, Real wood trim on dash & S/W, space, Multi-function display in speedometer.
Better suspension for impact harshness & damping. Move wiper control and cruise control. Learn from the Asians, especially electronics. Lower price or add amenities competitors include as standard. Remove box on front of seats. Deeper cupholders. Better sound proofing-can hear tires too much.
