Bought this 2011 E350 last month. 42k miles. She's a beaut. I have owned Merc diesels in the past and was looking for a Bluetec, but settled on the V6 4Matic. I love this car's looks, everything about it. I've missed having a Mercedes for a number of years. I owned an 'E' class in the early 80's that was a 4Matic and almost bankrupted me for that very reason. This go round, I purchased an extended warranty up to 100k miles. The Comand mouse knob had to be replaced under warranty. That's about the only thing I could find wrong. Someone stripped the car of the owner's manual (I'm sure it's on EBay now) and the first aid kit. You know what a car is worth when there's an EBay demand for the owner's manual. At any rate, this car gets a lot of compliments and I love it.
So far I am very pleased with my 2011E350. When I step on the gas hard my neck snaps back and every car in my rear view mirror disappears. The sound system rocks. I wish it would have come with leather interior though. It's in the shop now for what I suspect is a failed gateway module. To be contd....
I have been experiencing four dead batteries within the first thousand miles (dealer replaced battery). Key recognition issues, which also had to be replaced. Obviously, there are issues draining the batteries overnight, and I driving the car every day doesn't make a difference. Massage chair started malfunctioning, and continued running after shutting the car off. On a few occasions, we would start the car and it wouldn't go into reverse or drive until you shut the car off, locked the doors and started all over again. Unfortunately the car was service 21 days out of 30 at the dealership. Hopefully, Mercedes-Benz can fix these problems. Overall, I'm a little bit disappointed with the reliability aspect of this vehicle and certainly didn't expect this at all. On the other hand, we really love this car!
I love the looks of the car. The BlueTec diesel gets great mileage. Had a rattle in the driver's seatbelt assembly repaired and one of the center wood panels replaced due to a loose anchor. There is a known problem with the keyless entry, but no fix yet. Sometime the car cannot recognize the key when you touch the inside door handle. Also, sometimes the car will not start with the pushbutton requiring you to remove the button and insert the key. This can be a pain, but happens infrequently. Hoping MB comes up with a fix soon..
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
