Mercedes-Benz E350 Problems
Vehicles equipped with a 7-speed automatic transmission may develop a rough shifting condition, most commonly going up from first to second gear and going down from third to second or second to first gear. Our technicians tell us this is due to an internal component failure. Mercedes has released updated parts; the transmission will need to be removed and disassembled to complete the necessary repairs.
The camshaft adjuster solenoid (which is related to the variable valve timing system) may fail or timing chain/balance shaft components may wear, resulting in illumination of the Check Engine Light and various drivability issues. Mercedes-Benz has released a service bulletin outlining specific repair instructions depending on fault codes stored.
The engine may develop a stalling and/or no start condition due to a failed crankshaft position sensor.

Certain vehicles were assembled with a right side window curtain airbag that was stitched together improperly. In the event of a crash, this airbag may deflate more quickly than intended, reducing the protection it may provide to vehicle occupants.

Forty-one vehicles may have a front engine pulley that was manufactured with an insufficient adhesive where the inner mass damper ring attaches to the vibration damper.

my car has died 4 times in two months been in the shop and they want to give me something to charge the battery. They claim that I don"t drive the car enough to keep a charge. Not happy with the 2011 E350 at all
Purchased 2006 E350 with 55K miles in 2009. Loved the ride and the handling. Great car for my sales job. At 110K miles in 2011, car began to shimmy on a cold start.

Apparently for 2006 and other similar years this part wa...
