The only problem with this car is the mildew smell in the ac that develops in less than a year. Drives well, handles well.
Luxury car - just be prepared
2006 Mercedes-Benz E350car fanatic - Los Angeles, CA06/28/2011
After several attempts to find a 2006 e350 that didn't have any forseeable major issues, I finally settled on a dark gray color, dark gray interior. It's a beauty - inside and out. Paint job is excellent, rides like a dream, very smooth transmission. Just be prepared - purchasing a mercedes is not the expensive part. Repairs and maintenance cost a fortune. Start saving up and whatever you do - buy the extended warranty!

It's imperative that I spread the wealth of info about this mechanically brilliant car. it's complete gold & I can't say enough good things about it. Before buying my 06 E350 4matic, I test drove just about every MB yr/model made to date & ended up buying a 2011 E550. I loved it, but later my local dealer got a 06 e350 4matic. I missed a model! I didn't get to test drive this one. Understandably so, they just aren't easily availible due to the newer models. So even though I'd already bought a 2011, I couldn't sleep knowing that I missed test driving this 06 model. So, I drove to the dealership and test drove. The drive was beautifully balanced, the ride was the smoothest EVER, interior design was perfect, & the purring engine was super quick! I was sick to my stomach, I knew I picked the wrong car! After talking to the dealer and begging, they let me swap. it was the best thing I've ever done! I love my 2006 e350 so much I would have paid the full 2011 price for the even swap. Luckily they did not make me.
