Car vs Dealership

MERCEDES-BENZ E CLASS DIESEL SALOON 2013-onwards

The MERCEDES-BENZ E CLASS E CLASS DIESEL SALOON E220 BlueTEC SE 4dr 7G-Tronic is a good car, with good motorway economy and good reliability. I have an issue with the speed controller not calibrated correctly, and the drivers windscreen wiper not 100% effective at speed. My overall advise is to choose your dealer and ongoing maintenance provider carefully, as low customer care from them can influence your appreciation of the car itself.

An Excellent Drive

MERCEDES-BENZ E CLASS DIESEL SALOON 2013-onwards

The 2015/6 car is a vast improvement on my earlier E-Class, a 2012 model. Smoother, quieter, standard Comand module, supposedly cleaner (although all diesel cars have a problem in this regard) - what's not to like? Not (yet) as economical or as responsive as my earlier car, although that may be because I've covered only 2200 miles from new; this should improve as the car beds in. Personally I prefer this design to the new shape E-Class because (a) to get the sexy new dashboard, you have to step up a model, which was unnecessary for me, and (b) the new car is longer and wider than this one, which is the tipping point for me. I have a friend who changes his E-Class every two years and the new one is too long for him too; he'll be moving to a C-Class. Could be a bit firmer on bends, but then I could have specced kit with the firmer suspension which does make a difference, but I chose not to. Overall, an excellent drive.

great ride and drive. disappointed with mpg so far as nowhere near the published mileage. Looks great on the road. Boot sounds tinny when closing.

Excellent executive cruiser. All the comforts and toys you could need, comfortable, powerful, economical - 70mpg today! Not a sports car no, but sporty yes - more a cruiser though, but certainly not a complaint. Highly recommended and gutted it will be going back soon after 2 years of pleas table driving.

Comfortable, hybrid changes your driving style for the better. The book states 68 miles to the gallon of diesel I have achieved 62 and 52 is easily reached. It is very easy to drive and you could drive for hours without fatigue.

A beautiful looking car

MERCEDES-BENZ E CLASS DIESEL SALOON 2013-onwards

Every time I start a journey I am anxious about the lack of spare tyre. The little compressor is breathtaking and I use it to pump up the tyres on my van. Fortunately in the 130,000 miles I have done I have never had a fast puncture, but the fear is there. The boot is large and swallows an enormous amount of luggage with the folding rear seat option that I have, far more luggage and people than I would have dreamed possible. Passenger comfort is as expected in an E'Class, it is so easy for me to send them to sleep in the back. The cup holder though almost impossible to find without a degree in origami. Why would you put wider, lower profile tyres on a vehicle that is designed to be comfortable and economical. The thump on our motorways over any of the pot holes, joints, repairs, debris, cats eyes even though I have found how to miss them on changing lanes. The wider tyres because of the amount of water they have to move really do impact on fuel economy when it rains. there is a noticeable drop in the wet. Now that economy figure of 68.90 miles to the gallon, not of course achievable in the real world but, if you fill up on a motorway and stick to 60mph you can achieve 74 mpg until you hit urban traffic. Overall a neck to neck fill will give between 48 and 58 mpg so not bad on a car this size. Driving the Hybrid is okay, it is not a drivers car it is a passengers car. Coming to a soft stop is almost impossible as the electric retardation to physical brake application change is seldom seamless. When you get to the point of just stopping, where in a normal car just releasing the brake at the last moment brings you to an un-noticed stop, the Hybrid will give an extra push or stop you dead as the whim takes it. If in economy mode you want to overtake quickly you must first select sport mode or a hard stamp on the throttle to engage kick-down will give the gearbox nightmares. the stamp produces firstly a pause you can hear the gearbox thinking "one gear down or two?" The answer is always 'one', oops wrong 'two' so it is quicker to go for sport. What is needed is a middle setting. It really is quite quick in sport mode though. A recent recall that was only offered to customers who went into a Mercedes dealership had all new injectors fitted. This I thought would be wonderful as it had recently been a lot thirstier than expected, a normal tank range of 700-750 miles from a 60 litre tank had dropped to 630-670miles. It also would go into limp home mode regularly. The outcome was not as expected and took a month to overcome, 2 hire cars and wrong parts being delivered by Mercedes to the dealer. At present in the last week before it's third birthday a warning showing "auxiliary battery malfunction" has presented itself. Three days to get it looked at no courtesy car available for two weeks. My old E220 is sadly missed. As an afterthought the LED dipped beams are fantastic, the halogen mains make trees in the distance look as though a troop of boy scouts have lit a bonfire, pathetic. I have fitted the missing star on the bonnet.

Good driving experience and I have it for two years and no major faults. The bad thing is the tyres run only about 23K. I know it differs in driving style. I am a cautious driver. I have stayed in the UK for only 12 years and no accidents and violations.
