2010-2011 Mercedes-Benz E-Class review | Consumer Reports

  • The Mercedes Benz E350 is luxurious and quiet inside. Unfortunately, controls are complicated and the steering feel detracts from the driving experience.
    See how the E350 compares to other Luxury Sedans: bit.ly/NElr2n

    I will admit that the electronically controlled Column shifter takes some getting used to I like it more space for cup holders and gives it some uniqueness to the vehicle. The BMW shifter is basically the same concept except it takes up valuable real estate in the center console. Space that could be used for.....let’s say........Cup Holders! I had a 528i X Drive and the major feature I liked was the X drive. Decently equipped but no NAVIGATION or back up camera. I would find a 92 Chevy Barrett’s before I tried another Bimmer.

    The attention assist is a joke. You need to set it to enable....if your driving drowsy your probably ignoring the warning anyway. It needs to be automated and set to activate on certain conditions....Example a Tahoe I rented a couple of years ago the coffee cup icon flashed after four hours of solid driving regardless of how safe you were. My Explorer activates after four hours or certain conditions like after a series of lane departure warnings. It will basically tell you....Take a break not a request.

    He doesn't know how to use the gear indicator so to him that makes it a bad car. To me, that makes him an idiot. Not feeling comfortable or personally preferring the technology in the car means one thing. He should go buy a TOYOTA! Mercedes is by far one of the finest automobiles and the amount of car you get in even a 10 or 11 eclass is superior to comparable mid size cars 3 and 4 years newer. Not to mention their safety ratings are impeccable. My life and safety is more important to me than the location of a knob or switch. I'm tired of Lexus and Infiniti getting the spotlight all the time and it's the same old saying. "Mercedes is to expensive to fix." That doesn't make it a bad car, it simply means that person can't afford to own one. Furthermore, it's worth the money just owning a vehicle with the structural soundness and quality integrity of Mercedes.

    Who does that where did you learn how to do drive most of the people in this country can’t even drive before you put a car in park put on the parking brakes before you put it in park so the car don’t roll again you guys always complain this is by far one of the best E class produced very reliable I have never heard people complain about it

    I own the e550 with brembos and renntech r1 tune and exhaust set up......and I have no troubles in any area with this car that was mentioned.....handling is not Porsche due to engine placement....but is good at low and higher speeds for a front engine v8 car......there are settings that were not mentioned for ride feel and performance feel ...on the "empty center console"....push them and notice the difference,..one of the best low cost cars for some go fast and mid class luxury....now....I'm also assuming he's testing a e350 with much lower output too.....now...my gripe for this car is the lack of rear seat entertainment on the headrest on mine and costly process to make the front video screen vim capable...and lack of factory posi rearend for 550 as standard option....id give the car a 9.5 of 10....I know this is an old review for when it was new...but anyone looking to buy a used one should know from a real owner vs. One guy who had maybe a weekend at best in it...also parts now to tune and upgrade it are more readily available since the w212 car shares the performance parts of mercedes siblings ....basically a good buy for a budget entry level Mercedes....(and also great fuel mileage I didn't mention earlier )

    I own a 2010 E350 . The radio controls are right where you want them to be. 28MPG highway I love it! The controls on the steering wheel are perfect. I'm not sure how they are distracting or complicated. This car is built around the driver. Mercedes are designed by engineers with advanced college degrees and are very smart. This guy got his journalism degree at deVry night school and thinks he's a hero bashing the Benz. HAHA Also a footnote, the "steering feels numb in the corners"? This guy is a driving sport luxury sedan. I shouldn't have to worry about the steering all the way through a curve. I know the car is doing its job. I'm sure it's more distracting than the Corolla this guys drives on the daily, Probably his car NOT backfiring is lack of feedback haha

    In his defense, I kinda agree with some of his review. It was very honest about the shortcomings but that does t mean that the E350 is not a great car. First of all the car should be completely stopped before you shift into any gear though, and that goes for ANY car. The menus require you to keep switching to do basic things like changing the radio preset after using a different source or checking the coolant temp which should always be visible, but it’s hidden in a menu. Germans have never been known for good tech anyway but the ride quality is supreme. That’s why you buy this car and you just live with the small imperfections which are few.

    I have a 2011 E350 for 3 years now. Got it with a 3 year manufacturers warranty unlimited mileage. This car runs like it's brand new and "0" problems. As for this really bad, stupid review...I had an Audi S8, great car, an Audi A6, great car, several BMW's...all great cars, but this is the most fun reliable car yet. Sure...other's may break better or run faster, but overall...I'll take this any day. I also get just about 30mph at 85mph cruise control. And for the record...the computer system is easy, unless yo;re an outright moron.

    Horrible reliability & electronics. Ugly exterior styling. Complicated controls. Bad steering wheel feel. Bad ride on the bumps. Poor headlights. And extra charges for safety features other car brands include as standard. It's no wonder all my friends have dumped their MB's for Lexus. And I can't wait to get rid of my S Class and do the same thing. The glory days of MB are over. Only people who don't do their homework and buy into their "prestige" ads still buy this brand. If you want a car with all these bad features and that will become a money pit for you in repairs then go ahead and get it. Never again for me.

      Edward Qin BMW doesn’t tell you about the Electric Water Pump and NO Coolant temperature gauge to warm you of overheating. By the time you realize your overheating it could be too late. Also not BMW that the company totes safety and to prove it they put the cup holder as cheap plastic slide out holders. Take a guess at what the first thing in the path of a Airbag will be? That’s right your hot coffee. In addition to Possible bruising by the Airbag you also have to deal with spilled coffee all over the place. Nothing says safety like reaching across the car at interstate speeds for your mocha latte. MB has center console mounted cup holders and column mounted shifter. Leave the center console space enough for a decent size storage compartment and decent cup holders. Like the good lab coated, safety goggled, design engineers in Stuttgart intended it to be. Although not totally 100% perfect there is a lot more that I can do myself instead of sending to dealer. So far for European vehicles that I have owned The Volvo, Audi and Mercedes are my top three.
