Review

Have owned this car since it was brand new (10 years) and the only time it needs attention is the once a year servicing. The ride is so comfortable that I have always arrived feeling no stress from driving whether it is 2 hours, 4 hours or 8 hours of driving. It has been simply the very best and is so economical to operate. I get 34mpg to 38mpg on road trips.

Review

I love the car but since the warranty expired it has been a nightmare. Maintenance is astronomical and repairs under $1000 are unknown. Oil cooler seals ($10 parts and $2000 labour, turbocharger ($4000!!!) are well known poor designs. If you buy one go ahead and buy a warranty. If not you’ll be up to your neck in horrendously expensive repair bills!

Review

Bought an '08 Bluetec with 15,500 miles in March 2010. Excellent vehicle. Smooth, quiet, excellent mileage, plenty of power. Very smooth shifting vehicle. This is my 3rd Mercedes, by far the best (previous was an '83 300td (junk), e300 (pretty good). I have owed Lexus (IS300) and 5 series BMW and like this better. Many other vehicles along the way and this is the best. Package 2 with keyless go, fold down rear seat and the full moon roof. 19 miles one way to work, mostly freeway with some stop and go downtown and I see 36 mpg routinely. Not a big NAV user but have found this nav system to be a challenge. Logic is not intuitive but you do figure it out with some focused effort.


Best Features

Keyless go. Overall ride quality (excellent suspension for everyday driving on our crumbling infrastructure). Full length moonroof. Fold down seats (my road bike fits nicely when you remove the front wheel). Scale / dimensions of the car is right for me. Stereo is pretty good too.


Worst Features

Nav is a bit weak. Rest of the car is sterling. This is a luxury sedan, not a sports car but I would like a little better cornering capability (tends to be a little ponderous in hard cornering). Having said that, overall daily driving ride quality is superb.
