320 Bluetec

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.

Quiet and Smooth

Overall a great car if smooth, quiet, and solid are what one is looking for. Not sporty, but high-quality luxury. Very good acceleration if needed from a stop although requires a long pedal to really make it move. Looking better and better as this generation evolves. Very good stock automotive HK sound system. Absolute pleasure to drive, wish I had gotten a 15k-18k lease instead of 12k. Custom- ordered, fully loaded except panoramic sunroof which is not needed in Arizona, besides the standard sunroof is pretty big!

Great under warranty, not so much after

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!

No turbo cooler

Had to replace engine at 40,000 miles at a cost of $ 23,000.00. There is no turbo cooler cooling the turbo after engine shutoff of a long drive. The turbo literally explodes while the car is parked raining its parts all over the engine. Unbelievable that MB designers could put this car into production without a cooler. As the car was out of warranty MB/Penske refused any accommodation as far as cost is concerned. Would you buy another MB product??
