I never thought I would own a Mercedes. I always felt they were and old person's car. This CDI as a lot of power. I drove from south Jersey to 20 miles from Georgia on one tank of fuel. I bet I could have made it to Georgia. I lease the car and the only way I will not buy it after the lease is if Mercedes puts that motor in its S class.
The fuel mileage. The ride is soft.
The Nav system. Put this engine in an S-class car. You will have a winner.
I was skeptical to buy a Mercedes, and felt it may be over priced, but it has been worth the money. Compared to other high end manufacturers, Mercedes drivers recieve the best overall performance and feel of a luxury car.
The sport version has so much room, I forget its kick other than the drive.
I would add toggle to the steering wheel for navigation like the radio feature.
2006 Mercedes-Benz E-Class E350 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 7A)
Bought it 6/29. At 1000 miles, notification of airbag malfunction. Mercedes tells me not to drive it for safety. 600 miles after it got fixed, another notification of airbag malfunction. Mercedes has too many electrical problems. Never had problems with any of my Japan made cars (Lexus, Infiniti).
Drives good if there are no electrical problems.
Let Lexus make your electrical circuits and transmission.
I don't think I will ever own anything but a Mercedes now! It's the best! Plenty of room for my family. I cannot believe the fuel economy I am getting! The dealership filled up my tank and I drove on that first tank 723 miles. This has so much power, and looks so slick!
Everything! I love this car!
The only thing I can say is that I wish some of the sedans came with a DVD player installed from the factory.
Faster than a speeding bullet. Finest ride in the world. This Mercedes truly lives up to what the Europeans say: There's Mercedes and then there's the rest. It is safe, quiet. The diesel sounds sexier and quieter than a gas engine, and the turbo makes it faster. I pay 23 cents less a gallon than I do for BMW guzzling Z4 BMW. Buy this car, it will save your soul.
DVD, navigation, compass. Stereo, satellite radio. Power everything.
