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


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.

2006 Mercedes-Benz E-Class Sedan E500 4MATIC 4dr Sedan AWD (5.0L 8cyl 5A)


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!

Review

We previosly owned 4 MLs, but it was time for a change. The car is fun to drive. The car has plenty of pick up. The interior space is very generous and the ride is great


Best Features

The Navigation system is a favorite with my son. Overall, the car is just fun to drive.


Worst Features

I would like to see the service program brought back.

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


Review

Overall very good car. But has some quality issues that I would not expect in a $50k car. Driver seat squeaks (had to take twice to dealership), screws in plate holder became loose. A/C is noisy, fan in auto mode seems stuck in position 5. Had it checked, MB said it was normal. Other than that, is it a comformtable sedan with a spacious trunk. Engine is powerful with great gas mileage. You can easily get 26 MPG in freeway driving.


Best Features

Very good gas mileage. Comfortable ride. Quiet cabin.


Worst Features

Noisy A/C, takes time to cool off car. A bit complicated to operate all the gadgets.

Review

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).


Best Features

Drives good if there are no electrical problems.


Worst Features

Let Lexus make your electrical circuits and transmission.
