Mercedes-Benz E320 BLUETEC Problems

SRS Light Due to Damage from Liquid Spilled onto Passenger Seat

Water can damage the weight sensor in the front, passenger seat, causing the SRS (airbag) light to illuminate. There is an electrical component in the seat cushion susceptible to fluid damage. Any spills should be dried up immediately in order to try and prevent damage to the sensor.

Early Versions of Central Gateway Module Have Software Problems

The early versions of the central gateway module (which allows different systems to communicate with each other) have software problems. 

Squeaking/Worn Brake Pads May Require Rotor Replacement Also

The brakes may begin to squeak at about the 50 percent wear point. This is due to the size and material used for the brake pads and rotors.  The brake rotor surfaces become uneven, causing a lip to form at the outer edge. This will generally require replacement of the rotors when the pads are worn (pad life varies depending on driving style and terrain).

Car lost power. Technician believes it to be a turbo charger issue. (1 answer)

Upon entering freeway and stepping on gas, there was no power to gain speed. Took quite a long time to reach 60mph. Drove to Dealership. Initial diagnosis is turbo charge issue. What can I expect? A hose, maybe a gasket? What are labor costs involved for turbo charge related issues?

I have e 280 diesel. Some times the gear shifting does not take place. (1 answer)

Mercedes-Benz E320 BLUETEC Reviews

I bought car used with 100,000 miles, Interior is cheap for a car that cost this amount of money new, Its not leather its' pleather(plastic) my little dog slides like she is on glass on it. The GPS stinks, Now the good part, 38.5 miles per gallon on the freeway, and about 26 city, very nice stereo, handles great, I have the fold down seats, great for long cargo, sun shade in the back keeps car...
I LOVE this car! fuel mileage is great, power is wonderful, takes corners terrific. I've put nearly 20k miles in six months and overall could not be happier. ONLY thing I'm not crazy about is the GPS, and the electronic "files" you have to scroll through to make changes... very cumbersome.
The cup holders are in the console to on e of the reviews. The only 2 problems. 1.heavy rain wipers do not keep up blinding. The AC cutting on and off at randomm took to shop with out any resolve at this time.
