2011 Mercedes-Benz E-Class E350 4MATIC 4dr Wagon AWD (3.5L 6cyl 7A)


Review

Late August pick-up (2k miles so far) - luxury, obsidian black, almond/mocha leather, P1, wood steering wheel. Beautifully built, highly refined. Standout interior w/ excellent stereo, very comfortable seats, good noise insulation. Very smooth at highway speeds, yet holds well on sharp on/off ramps. However, MB misses in two areas. 1st, engine is a bit underpowered for car's size. 2nd, mediocre 7-speed trans. Specifically, shifting keeps RPMs too low when accelerating unless peddle to the floor (so much for 2 overdrives), sport mode does nothing, does not adapt to driving style (contrary to advertising). A very good car, but needs some work. A shame BMW no longer makes the 5 wagon.


Favorite Features

Stereo, seats, overall interior design / layout, and materials (except as noted below)


Suggested Improvements

Needs a 300 hp engine, a transmission that performs as advertised, and replace a few componets that are downright cheap such as gas tank access door (plastic).

Review

We were happy to welcome the 2011 wagon into our family. We owned a 2000 wagon, and contemplated purchasing the body style that came in between, but found it too small for our taste. The 2011 wagon, while not as quite as large as its predecessor 2 generations ago, is much roomier inside than the model that launched in 2004. Wagons seem to attract a dedicated audience, and deservedly so. This model is beautiful to look inside and out. It offers the utility of an SUV and the drive of a car. The third row remains one of our favorite features, not only for its ability to carry two (small)l people but also for its ability to hold grocery bags upright. More luxurious, more powerful. Winner.


Favorite Features

We love the panoramic sun roof, the remote controlled rear hatch, the comfort of the seats, the utility of the car with seats up or down. Ours also has the sport package with larger wheels and a front air dam that gives this family car some pizzaz. The engine is also top notch. Fast, quiet, smooth.


Suggested Improvements

I still wish there was a bit more headroom in the back. The wagon we purchased in 2000 comfortably held two adults. The new wagon is roomier than the model that came just before it, but the third row is really only suitable for small children. Sometimes the seatbelts in back get stuck on the cover.

Review

I picked up my new wagon on Saturday, and drove it from Philly to Baltimore and back on Sunday. Overall, a very good ride. Incredibly comfortable and great stereo. Decent cornering, but the engine could use another 40 hp.


Favorite Features

Build quality, seats, and stereo.


Suggested Improvements

More powerful engine.
