Best Coupe Available by Cal in Brooklyn on 01/24/2013. Trim: 2011 Mercedes-Benz E350 Coupe, Owned 2 years.
Pros: Best stylish coupe on the market that still retains the unmistakable Benz look. Fast enough and quiet. Cruises quietly and easily at 80 so be mindful. The absence of a post pillar adds to the look. Fatter tires in the back give it a sportier appearance. No hint of a maintenance issue in 19k miles. Great road car.
Cons: The navigation package is cumbersome for mapping and audio alike. Can be learned but preferred the touch screen approach of the Infiniti.
Overall review: This is one of those Benz's that will look good forever....style-wise.

Great looking, but costly too by Randy - Houston, TX on 05/18/2012. Trim: 2011 Mercedes-Benz E350 Sedan, Owned 2 years.
Pros: Love the look inside and out! Great ride and comfort. Interior colors, wood, and chrome details sold the car for me!
Cons: Would like leather to be standard (all lower cost cars offer that as a standard option), not easy keeping wax on the black paint and the painted steering wheel control buttons are already pealing @ 15,000 miles. MB will replace once under the 4-year/50-mile warranty, but should have never happened, something to re-engineer MB! Check out the scheduled maintenance before buying, the list of suggested maintenance to keep the warranty valid for 100,000 miles will set you back several thousand’s over 7-years. It's a Mercedes, should not have to remove and flush all the fluids multiple times during that period.
Overall review: Great car, the value is in the hood-emblem, without that star the car could be considered over priced.

Not so much a Mercedes anymore by IvanIgor in AZ on 02/28/2014. Trim: 2011 Mercedes-Benz E350 Sedan, Owned 1 year.
Pros: Decent acceleration. Responsive steering. Good sound insulation.
Cons: Exterior design. Interior design. Vinyl seats. Feels heavy, especially in 4matic edition.
Overall review: Previous generation E-Class was almost perfect. That car was beautiful and comfortable. It was little too soft comparing to BMW and Audi rivals, which made it less suitable for hard cornering. I guess that thought did not allow Mercedes' engineers to sleep well, so they decided to build a BMW-like Mercedes. W211 E350 offers more responsive steering, better acceleration, but the ride is stiff and uncomfortable by Mercedes standards. It is now anything, but Mercedes. Was it a good trade? I am not so sure. When it comes to design and options, I find them to be poor as well. Car looks bulky and outdated inside and out. It almost feels that Mercedes' designers didn't have any drawing tools except the ruler. You won't find any curves neither on this vehicle's body nor in its interior. Everything is square. Navigation system is basic, voice controls are limited and inconvenient. Seats are not as comfortable, as they used to be. Leather upholstery is replaced with "MB Tex" vinyl.

Nice E350 with some issues by Brian from New Orleans on 02/02/2014. Trim: 2011 Mercedes-Benz E350 Sedan, Owned 3 years.
Pros: Leased a 2011 E350 . Selected this over the BMW 5 series an the Audi A6...mainly due to the better lease payment. The car is very nice and has performed well. I also included the pre-paid maintenance plan which I highly recommend due to the cost of regular maintenance .
Cons: The Pirelli Nero all season tires wore unevenly on the rear of the car....interesting that they wore on the inside...looked ok from the outside and I found out because I had a flat....cord showing on both rear tires. Other issues were the A/C drain was not connected at the factory , the rear floor board got wet and they replaced the entire interior carpet because of it. Replaced the faux wood also because it faded. Also replaced the control knob, MB emblems on the tires because they faded and the side pillar covers because they faded also.
Overall review: Great engine package with numerous cosmetic issues, control and the tire conundrum. Overall, MB folks took care of all the issues. I purchased new tires and mentioned the unusual wear to the folks at the dealership and they said they would install for me at n/c.....would rather the tires had lasted longer but they are performance type low profile tires that wear quicker...replaced at 32k miles.
