2011 Mercedes-Benz E-Class E350 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 7A)
Have had two Lexus ES350 and one RX350.
All were nice, but the RX wasn't the good quality as expected, and was boring.
My wife loved the RX, so it took some prodding to change.
So far we have 900 mi on the MB E350 and it is much more fun to drive with good quality.
Will likely miss the Lexus free maintenance, but this car seems worth it.
Very quiet, great music system, nav, etc.
The panorama sunroof sold my wife, but it uses a screen to keep out sunlight instead of a solid cover.
So in Texas the screen allows some heat through.
Keep that in mind.
A/C is extremely cold though, so no worries.
The Command interface works well for me.
Transmission lever is cool but different.
Make solid cover instead of screen for panorama sunroof option.
Backup camera uses fisheye lens and is not good for safety in reverse.
Ford truck has best camera and MB needs it.
Front spoiler too low like a Corvette.
Easy to damage on curbs.
