2013 Mercedes-Benz E350Craig - Brown Deer, WI02/03/2015
I did my research on luxury sedans before deciding on the Mercedes-Benz E350 over other cars in the category like the Audi A6, Cadillac CTS, and BMW 335i. After driving these modesl, my decision to purchase the E350 was simply that it brings the entire package I was looking for (performance, interior amenities, safety, and reliability) in a design that is strikingly refined yet not over the top. The ride is tremendous and the interior is extremely comfortable for my size (6'2" 220lbs).
This is the Blutech version which makes it a turbo Diesel and 4 wheel drive. It's not the base model this form forces you to select. Lots of tork, great handling, quiet, smooth, excellent acceleration, and 35+ miles to the gallon combined! Lots of 350s out there. This one is a very rare configuration that will easily run into several hundred thousand miles.
After owning Jaguar and BMW convertible cars I can honestly say this is the best of the group. The body is very solidly built and exhibits none of the cowl shake issues commonly seen in convertibles. With the top up, the car is extremely quiet and the fit of the top, headliner and the window seals is excellent. If you're looking for a luxury convertible with a usable rear seat, this car is a very good choice. Great driving car with classic Mercedes good looks and build quality. Already one of my favorite cars of the more than 30 I've owned.
