Not Quite Great
By WagonGuy2 on
Vehicle2011 Mercedes-Benz E-Class E350 4MATIC 4dr Wagon AWD (3.5L 6cyl 7A)
ReviewLate 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.
Best FeaturesStereo, seats, overall interior design / layout, and materials (except as noted below)
Worst FeaturesNeeds 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).
