RepairPal has identified the most common problems with the 2008 Mercedes-Benz E350 based on complaints from actual vehicle owners. We'll tell you what the problem is and what it'll take to fix it.
Rear air springs (bellows) may develop leaks, which causes the air pump to run more often to maintain ride height. Our technicians recommend that leaking air springs be replaced.
A failed digital heater control valve can cause a lack of heat output from the climate control system.
Many software updates are available for the different computer systems, but if the vehicle is out of warranty, it may cost money to receive the updates (unless it is a recall). Some updates may be dealer-only, but a well-equipped independent shop can usually provide updates as well.
The release tab for the center console can fall off unexpectedly.
The relay which turns the airmatic suspension pump on may fail causing the pump to run continuously. This can result in failure of the pump motor or a dead battery as the pump motor will continue to run after the car is turned off. Also, Worn airmatic pump mount bushings can causes noises in the front axle while driving on bumpy roads or a buzzing noise while the pump is running.
The cup holder in the center console is known to break.
