The voice command needs tweaking

Love the styling. Mercedes does silver better than anyone. People regularly tell me what a great looking car this is. Sport version is the best looking version of the e350. Seats are unbeatable. Cadillac does not even compare. Great car to drive all day. Ergonomics are far better than most. Sound system is superb. MB solid construction as expected. Love the car. Cup holders actually work! Never An issue and dealer experience has been great (Mercedes of Chantilly VA)
Don' t like the stalk shifter but glad to have decent cup holders. Paddle shifters work fine but sport mode works great so don't need them.
Super solid car with lots of cache. Great for travel. Love the styling. Unless you are racing your car this is a great German ride. Family loves it.

The car is very fast ( 0 to 60 in 4.5 sec. ) Nice ride and looks really great . Everybody likes the car . I work in sales and enjoy driving the car on long trips .
The thing I do not like about this car is the brake rotors don,t last from one oil change to the next . I have owned at least 15 new cars and this is the worst on brake rotors I have ever had . I talked to the dealer and they say I am the only person in the world that is having this problem .
I love this car except the brake problem

A good, solid extremely well built automobile. Safety features are second to none. Fit and finish of components exceeded my expectations. A very comfortable car to drive, very responsive to every move with braking extremely precise.
The MB Tex material is a little stiffer than leather seating and seems to be more responsive to changes in temperature.
A fine luxury automobile from one of the premier auto manufacturers, Mercedes-Benz. This is my second MB and as long as I drive, will never change brands. Extremely satisfied with all aspects of this automobile.

It is an absolute pleasure to drive. I hunted all over the US to find what I wanted and finally did, in the basement of the local dealer. Someone had ordered it and never picked it up. It had been unloaded, detailed and put away. It has a lot of power and short of having really good performance tires, I have not found a problem with it in the 19000 miles I have driveen it. I've gotten an average of about 22 mpg which has been mostly freeway type driving. I drive a Porsche Carrera most of the time but love to drive this if I can get my wife out of it.
It is too quiet. I'm used to a car that I can hear.
I would recommend this car to anyone who likes luxury and performance combined.

100% Best Car

Great Handling, acceleration and comfort. Gas mileage is also very good about 24MPG.
Not happy about the Gear shifter, I don't like it on the steering column and the way its designed.
The car is amazing and will get you a ton of compliments.

Solid feel; excellent craftsmanship; superb ride; vault-like feeling.
Does not have a standard usb contection, nor satilite radio. Price with options can quickly escalate.
Excellent vehice with quality materials and elegant styling.

Excellent acceleration and tight handling!
Cabin recirculation button resets every 20 minutes!
I have owned this car for almost one year now and it is amazing in every way. So far it has been near perfect with no defects! I love love love this car! It is such a joy to drive. The most impressive feature of this car is it's acceleration! Make no mistake about it....you will own the road more than 99% of the time with the impressive 5.5L V-8. As you accelerate to pass someone, greater than 99% of the time, there is nothing they can do about it! O.K. Perhaps the rare Ferrari or Lamborghini will cause you to stand down. The handling is tight. The brakes match the power of the engine and stop this beast on a dime. The suspension is perfect. No problems with the steering as others have reported. It is extremely insulated and quiet making it difficult to hear sirens. I opted for all the bells and whistles, particularly every safety option. Get the blind spot assist...it is worth the money and very effective/helpful. The upgraded sound system is very nice as well. It makes even taking my daughter to school in the morning so enjoyable! It costs an arm and a leg to service this car. I have figured out how to change the oil and reset the computer. I have been told that I am the first Mercedes owner to do such a thing in these modern/computerized cars. I am too cheap to pay what I can do myself, but willing to splurge on such luxury. My only complaint is the cabin recirculation button which resets every 20 minutes and with each engine start. Being in Southern California, I get a blast of diesel exhaust every 20 minutes! I have called Mercedes Benz and they tell me, "This is how the car is engineered." Did I mention that I love this car? I still clean it almost daily. I condition the leather monthly and vacuum at least weekly. I applied window tinting as soon as I purchased the car to further protect the leather and applied scotchgard to the carpets. I love this car! Congratulations Mercedes!

Good Looking Car
Bad Quality Of Interior
Very disappointing MB service I have same problem four times and it has never solve. I have called the MB head quarter no one responsed. I am very disappionted your service. I will never buy Mercede Benz again. Japanese car had better service and quality.

strong, powerful,, quiet, safe. wolf in sheeps clothing. fit and finish are excellent. braking only above average.
unusual position of cruise control. learning curve for all the amenities might be time consuming.
If you want an E-Class I highly suggest the 550
December 16 2010
Fit and finish is much better then the last generation E class, better GPS, better bluetooth, much better front seats.
does not seem to handle as well as last generation E class.
great car for the money
December 5 2010
Bought new in July of '09, one of the first in town...moon roof sun shade won't open and close properly, jams up and sticks in one position. loud thumping and growling sound in left front wheel area when car is turned hard right. compass in mirror is never right...driving East shows SW. 2nd Mercedes we have owned (had a '04 E-350) and this coupe will be the last.
October 28 2010
Quick, responsive, good feel of the road and handling characteristics, impressive technology
Nothing at this point
This car drives, handles, and responds more like a sports car than a sedan...and the onboard technology not only works well but far surpasses my BMW 535 that I traded. It is real technology, not "fluff".
October 27 2010
Styling is superb, the interior is decadent, and the performance is way above expectations
Overpriced but somehow worth every penny.
No need to get the 8 cylinder 550, the 6 cylinder 350 has all the power you need at a much lower price and better fuel economy

Great looking car
Quality of interior
When I test drove the car I loved it. Now that I have owned it for several months I am extremely disappointed in the quality of the interior. Numerous squeeks and rattles in the dash and rear of the vehicle. I have had it in for repair seven times and no improvement. Definitely not worth the money! My wife and my parents each have different model Mercedes and love them..... Wish I could say the same!

Ride and handling are excellent when in sport mode. Mushy when in comfort mode but great on trips. Got rid of Porsche CarreraS because got tired of being beaten to death on long trips. Was the 13th Porsche I'd owned, I've found nothing so far that I don't like about the coupe except it was hard to find one with the V-8.
I haven't found anything con, yet.
I'm happy with the styling, comfort, performance and fuel economy (I get 23-26 mpg on the highway and 18 around town.
August 29 2010
Bluetooth works great. Very smooth ride. Car looks great, gets lots of looks. Very nice ride on long car trips. Navigation works well. tire pressure gauge, iphone/ipod integration works seamlessly. Love the Sat radio. Braking feels very solid.
Cornering is not as tight as a I would have liked (previously owned BMW). Acceleration is a little sluggish unless in sport mode. The voice navigation can be a little annoying. Ipod cord is in the glove box and is not very convenient.
Overall, a great car

appearance, ride comfort HK audio/COMAND system
apearance see below
Yes. appearance is in pros and cons. Pro- the coupe (in red) is a stunningly good looking car. Con- because of the Pro, I am constantly stopped at gas stations, parking lots, etc and asked about the car. Have almost been hit a few times because people were eyeing the car. Gas mileage isn't great but if you're worried about gas prices you probably should be looking at luxury cars anyway. Engine performance in comfort mode seems a bit sluggish.Very comfortable ride, lumbar support for driver and passenger are excellent- even rear seats are okay. Love the panorama sunroof and automatic shades. HK audio sytem is great. Controls are much better than BMW's iDrive system. Don't trust Parktronic though. Mercedes needs to improve their warranty/ service/ maintenance plan to BMW level.

This car has presence. Just traded in my Lexus. Night and day.
Having to pay for routine maintenance.
July 29 2010
I traded the '08 version for the '10 and what a difference. Much more comfortable and much better features. The new look is also much improved. I especially like the look the new tail light design.
If not in manual mode, there's a loss in acceleration power between 1st and 2nd gear. If switched into manual this goes away.
Solid new redesign that I recommend over the last body style. Still not quiet as comfortable and spacious as the 2001 style.
June 27 2010
Great appearance. Interior roomy and very confortable
What a car. Traded from Lexus 350, no comparison. Ride is great and options, Nav etc are very easy to use. Love smart dash feature. I checked out the Lexus, Lincoln and Buick, there is no comparison
June 14 2010
Beautiful, comfortable, good price for the luxury
in the C mode could get sluggish sometimes, better as S mode but uses more gas in S.
Bought my first new 2010 E350 coupe in Oct 2009, been 9 months, and LOVE IT! No real big cons yet. It's so comfortable to drive. The best thing about this car is the new sleeker, younger, hotter design. The old E class looked a bit old. Glad they changed the design for the new decade! I'll be driving mine for at least the next decade for sure!
May 31 2010
It is better than any Asian car I have ever driven (Toyota and Kia). I feel safe in it.
The roof could could be a bit higher in the back. But it is not serious.
It is a fantastic car. It is the best car out there.

Appearance, handling, ride, safty ratings, options, wow factor
Price, maintenance cost
I have owned 2 C-class, 2 E-Class, 1 ML and 1 GL. The 2010 E Sedan is the best one yet. The car is a delight to drive and extremely comfortable and quite. The electronic packages are as high tech as they come from night vision display to voice activated controls. Most of the electronic options come straight from the six figure S Class. These cars are fabulous until you have to take them to the dealer for maintenance. The price of routine repairs can be ridiculously high but not unexpected for a high end luxury automobile. Luckily my wife works for Mercedes so I get a deal on repairs. The E sedan is at home in the valet of the most posh hotel/restaurant or as an every day driver. If you?re seriously looking for a luxury sedan it?s definitely worth a test drive.
