2006 Mercedes-Benz E-Class Sedan E350 4MATIC 4dr Sedan AWD (3.5L 6cyl 5A)


Review

Sorry to say I can't agree with most of the E350-4M reviews. It has been back to the dealer 10 times mostly for electrical problems (oil level message, ESP/cruise failure but also incl 2 recalls). Nice ride, good fuel mi (27 hwy) and good performance but the reliability has been a nightmare. This was always my "one day I'll have a MB" - didn't do my normal comparison testing and am paying for it. If you want further quantification just check out the resale - dropped from $57k new to $37k in 14 mos!!


Best Features

Fuel mileage, performance and ride


Worst Features

Improve reliability - it's killing resale

2006 Mercedes-Benz E-Class Sedan E350 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 7A)


Review

Great car, except for electrical problems. Because the repair was not scheduled in advance, the dealer kept the car 1 week for repairs. I picked up the car and drove it three blocks from the dealer and the same electrical problems, lights and cruise control, ESP lights were back on showing, see the workshop for repairs. The car stayed at the dealer for 1 more week before it was fixed. I have driven it 500 miles and everything seems to be OK. I know my confidence in the car is not what it was two months ago. Not sure if I will ever purchase another Mercedes Benz.


Best Features

Great looking car!


Worst Features

Mercedes needs to work at fixing the reliablity problems. Dealer should be able to repair the car in less than 15 days.

Review

This car has made driving fun again. Great handling, firm solid feeling, and an excellent build quality. After driving BMW and Lexus, there was no comparison to the overall driving experience. Better than advertised fuel economy. Only complaint is a some what noisy HVAC system.


Best Features

Get the I-Pod interface kit. Able to control all functions from the steering wheel while charging the unit. Excellent sound quality. Nice display in the center of the instrument panel.


Worst Features

Reduce HVAC noise and improve A/C cooling.

Review

I'm used to the comfortable hohum driving experieces of Japanese cars. For a long time I've driven Lexus, but decided I wanted something fun to drive, comfortable, safe, and powerful. This car fit the description almost perfectly. I got the AWD model for Connecticut's uncertain winters. The car begs to be driven fast. You can fine tune your suspension from comfort to sport which ever you desire. A deterent for German cars seem to be its terrible reliability, so far nothing yet! We'll see how the rest of the year progesses. It's nice to have the only one , the car turns heads all over. The vehicle was equipped with the premium and appearance packages, electric trunk closer, wood steering wheel, and voice control.


Best Features

The seats are 1st class. The surplus in power, and the handling is precise. The rare appearence package defines the car and makes it look like nothing else on the road. Heated and ventialted seats, Harman Kardon audio, HID lights with curve illumination, suspension control, steering wheel. The 3 pointed star on the hood! Quietness


Worst Features

Parktronic and Bluetooth Should be standard. Fuel economy is terrible, but it's an AWD V8, what do u expect? Steering is bit heavy at low speeds!
