A well built example of what a car S/B
April 27, 2019
I have owned my E300-4matic for about 7 months now and I can say without reservation that it does most things very well. I ordered my car which, given this isn’t a cheap car, is the best way to go if you don’t need a new car immediately. My only regret is that I didn’t order the exterior Lighting Package which offers the convenience of having the high beams switch on and off automatically as they can detect other cars moving in the opposite direction.
That aside, I have found this car to be capable most especially in the interior comforts the car offers, the seats are great and if it’s in your budget, order the massaging front seats, if you have any back problems this feature will allow you to drive long distances without any back pain as the seat provides a real world massage along with the seat being heated, again a very useful option. Best of all, the car gets great gas mileage, 30 mpg on the highway is doable and you can expect 24 mpg in the city, but, you must use premium fuel otherwise you’ll Void your warranty, but for an extra 10 cents a gallon the difference in the cost of a full tank is under $2, if you can afford the car you can afford another $1 and change, plus premium gets you better gas mileage and if you’re lucky enough to have a 76 gas station nearby their premium gas is real premium at 93 octane whereas the rest only give you 92 octane and you can use the 76 brands mid-grade fuel as that is 91 octane which MB says is approved for use in the E300 engine. All in all, if you can afford this car and plan on keeping it for 5 years or more, I think you’ll be very happy with your choice, I know I am. Best of luck.
