This is an awesome car that I was very pleased with when I bought it. Added the iPod cable and a Bluetooth pod to the car and it works very well. However, the CD Changer. I expected more from Mercedes-Benz on this one. So, a CD is stuck in the Changer and when I took it to the dealer to have it removed, they said the ONLY option was to purchase a new CD Changer for $ 995.00. I was kind of shocked. So, now I have this beautiful Mercedes who's trade in value just rocketed downwards... how can I trade this car with a broken CD Changer... I will try a 3rd party who knows this stuff to see what happens..... thanks for reading...
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. In later weeks, the car would shake violently on start up. Was told that it was a "balance shaft rotor", a small part about the size of a lipstick case deep inside the engine. Apparently for 2006 and other similar years this part was made of a softer metal. It would warp over time and cause the out-of-balance shaking to where the car was undriveable. Had 3 estimates from $5500 to $7000 to remedy. Bit the bullet and had it repaired by a buddy in Cleveland for $4500 who shot this video of the project Great car, but emotionally taxing repair. Good luck.
Bought car brand new in 2005. Have the same issue as others with Engine Check light due to balance shaft gear wear, requiring pulling the engine and replacing the balance shaft - at a cost of about $5500.
I have a 2006 E350 and need a Schedule C Maintenance Check-up. After consulting the owner's manual, it is difficult to determine exactly which items need to be checked. Can anyone provide a list of Schedule C items to be checked?
I have had this care for 3+ years now. shortly after i bought the car i went into the dealership and i was told that i issues with the engine belt or something like that. i called warrenty dept and they would not cover the repairs. After going on line i realized that a few people had the same issues. I had purchased the car and taken it to the dealer ship to have it checked and i was told its in excellent shape.
I spent over $4000 dollars in repairs .. mercedez Benz has really bad customer service.
Great car for the money.
Heating system some times difficult to adjust to prefered settings.
