2011 Mercedes-Benz E-Class E350 BlueTEC 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl Turbodiesel 7A)


This vehicle replaces our 2008 E320 Blue-Tec and what an improvement. Mercedes has made great improvements in cabin design and layout, improved the voice command control and greatly improved the navigation and radio manual controls. To top it off we're getting 38 to 40 mpg for combined city/highway driving (much better than EPA estimates and better than our 2008) and there's more than enough power to pass anything on the highway. This is a really great vehicle.

Best Features

Diesel power and fuel economy, its way better than EPA estimates. Improvements in radio and navigation control, real rotary buttons that work, and driver's side seat.

Worst Features

Provide same seating options available for the drivers seat to the passenger's side of the car an bring back the trunk closure button.

No big deal. The AdBlue is nothing more than standard DEF fluid (Diesel Exhaust Fluid) available at any truck stop, many gas stations and car parts stores. I buy 2.5gal containers for about $12 and it's easy to add. Just pop the trunk, unscrew the cap to the tank and insert included nozzle and fill. In 15000 miles I think I've added 5 or 7.5 gals with the last being a week ago.

Would you comment on the cost and frequency of replenishment of the AdBlue fluid?
