2013 Mercedes-Benz E-Class Diesel E350 Sport BlueTEC 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl Turbodiesel 7A)


Review

I have owned 3 MB diesel sedans and they were great fast efficient low maintenance bullet proof especially the 1998 E300 a rocket and 29 mpg ave :) MB with the help of the EPA has put the diesel line up in MB a liability to dive not a durable 500K mile car... For one you have to purchase 35.00 a BluTech fluid every oil change... at 7 gallons a pop... Perhaps you could put any DEF from a chain store at 12 a gallon... Why the need for an expensive exhaust system how much will it cost to replace? On the EClass a Diesel comes with RFT because of the blue tank. So a guy who drives say 50 to 200 miles a day must rely on RFT and have no spare... to make room for a Urea tank... S350 has a spare


Favorite Features

Diesel engine... Looks... Split seats, dash board... Very nice car...


Suggested Improvements

Eliminate the Adblue and put a spare in a car that the owner plans to drive 50 to 300 miles a day... By the time you add the DEF Urea extra cost of RFT your better off with the Gas E350 and you can get 4matic... 2014 4 cylinder EClass now comes with AWD but still no spare... I saw a 70K 2014 4 cylinder E250 for 70K lol are they kidding... This car may be a good lease deal but not a good purchase because once you have to ad DEF buy short life RFT your 36 mpg AWD EClass will cost you more... in the long run... The only USA Diesel is the VW Jetta platform TDI's. These are gas and go, you get a spare. The Passat you still need DEF but you have a spare and its a big as the Eclass at half the cost
