E350 rides smooth, Avg. performance, OK Quality

This car drives heavy, the body is thick with good paint, looks good, steering feel is good and handles well, easy to park. However, the quality is inconsistent. The transmission shifts down can be felt, the brake feel is bland and feels fake. There is a lot of plastic used in the car and under the hood where its hot & that's where the problems start. My 10 year old car's plastic pieces cracked, plastic hoses got brittle and chipped, every connector that were touched easily broke. There are few things about Mercedes everyone should know; they deliberately make it very difficult for owners to maintain it; e.g. various types & sizes of bolts for simple things like opening up filter housing (very unnecessary). Also, MB makes it difficult to identify parts, i.e. there were 4 types of rotors for just the base trim for 2006 - no indication which ones are the correct ones. The locks pop-up like it was designed in 1980 and started malfunctioning. Occasionally, there was gas smell inside the vehicle. The AC performance was mediocre, AC smell was not healthy. My opinion is that MB E350 will require upkeeps and its better than other MB cars.

Super nice car.

I really enjoy driving this car. It does take premium gas which makes it pricey to drive but otherwise very nice ride. I'm selling because I have another vehicle and don't need 2.

The Mercedes E350: A Middle-of-the-Road Mercedes

Considering that a Mercedes E-Class of this year can be had now for less than $5-7k, it's really an excellent option for the money. If you're looking to take a step up into the German luxury vehicle territory, you really can't go wrong with the E-Class - it's quiet, comfortable, relatively reliable for a german vehicle, and it gets decent gas mileage as well. My E350 was the lowest available trim level for the 2006 model year, sporting the smallest possible engine, a 3.5L V6 mated to a 7-Speed transmission. The powerplant that Mercedes provides in this setup is sufficient, but nothing more. Passing power is decent, onramps are by no means an issue, but I wouldn't try to race an M3 by any means. I purchased the E350 specifically for its better gas mileage, but for those who are a bit more power hungry, the E550 trim has a V8 with a few more ponies to offer at the expense of milage. With regards to comfort, it's a Mercedes - the ride is soft, the seats are supportive, and the drive is confidence-inspiring. Features I've enjoyed on my specific E-Class are the power rear sunshade, heated seats, and air ride, but there are plenty more available options for those who crave a bit more finesse. Overall, the E-Class is a great car for the money as long as it's optioned to suit its driver.
